Local 174 is restructuring so that we can overcome the challenges in the rapid development and adoption of technology we are faced with in our industry. We must be able to adapt to these changes so it is important that Local 174 move towards the modern way of communications. In the near future, we will be moving towards the elimination of mailings and posting all membership meeting notices on the website. All activity happening in  your union will also be posted on the website so please be sure you visit www.opeiu174.org. for updates. We are  are also moving towards creating google platforms so you are aware of what is happening at the bargaining table .   

We are looking forward to partnering with you on changing the face of this Local by Organizing New Members and Mobilizing our Membership. Your involvement is crucial, so we are asking all members to be actively involved in Membership Meetings, Shop Steward Trainings, and Contract Bargaining Committees.  If you have not updated you personal email and phone number, please do so by filling out the contact information on this website. 


 

 

 


Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s “compromise” to extend enhanced unemployment insurance by just one week is an insult to working people struggling to make ends meet. Call your senators today at (866) 832-1560 and tell them to protect working people and pass the HEROES Act.
