Letter to OPEIU Members Regarding COVID-19

Sisters and Brothers:

As the United States and nations throughout the globe are facing concerns related to the new coronavirus known as COVID-19, I feel it's important to speak directly to all OPEIU members and share the following information.

OPEIU is taking very seriously this pandemic and its impact on our members and the industries in which they work. We are working with our local leaders throughout the country to put in place protocols to ensure we best serve our members and your needs during this crisis. We are also following directives given to businesses and organizations from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO). OPEIU staff and leadership have taken several steps to limit potential exposure, including instituting a travel ban and restrictions according to potential geographic threat levels, restrictions on modes of transportation, and the instituting of a remote work policy when possible.

Alameda County Council - COVID-19

Dear Sisters and Brothers,

The COVID-19 global pandemic is causing unprecedented chaos internationally. Working families in Alameda County are dealing with the impact locally. We stand united with our union brothers and sisters who are currently struggling.

Yesterday, March 16th, counties across the Bay Area, including Alameda, have issued a shelter in place’ legal order until Tuesday, April 7th.

The order directs everyone to stay inside their homes with exceptions for essential work, food, or other needs in order to prevent the spread of COVID-19.



Dear OPEIU 29 Members: 

Following the public health order to “shelter in place”  in multiple Bay Area Counties to stop the rapid spread of COVID-19 OPEIU 29 leadership has made the difficult decision to physically close Local 29’s offices in Oakland and San Francisco effective March 17, 2020  and until the “shelter in place” is lifted.

Business Representatives and Administrative Support Staff will be supporting our members by phone and via e-mail until conditions change. We will continue to maintain communication with members through our website (www.opeiu29.org), Facebook account, e-mail blasts and cell phone channels. If you would like to be added to our email, texting and Facebook listing, please email your information to: president@opeiu29.org.

We appreciate your understanding. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact our office at 510-746-5960 messages will be checked regularly.
