Members of OPEIU Local 39 at CUNA Mutual in Madison Demand Just Contract

Also in Madison, members of OPEIU Local 39 are fighting for a just contract at CUNA Mutual Group. The union members contract campaign has consisted of multiple information pickets, media work and more. 

OPEIU Local 39

According to the South Central Federation of Labor

“On Tuesday, March 14, OPEIU 39 Chief Steward and CUNA Mutual Group employee Joe Evica was informed that he had been put on paid suspension pending an investigation into “disclosure of company information”. The message is clear: this is retaliation for Joe’s union activity, his role as a leader on the bargaining committee and in the union, and his effectiveness at organizing a collective response to management’s bad faith bargaining tactics.

Management needs to drop this investigation immediately and let Joe get back to work. CMG management has been deliberately evasive about what Joe has supposedly done wrong, while they have retained the services of notorious anti-union firm Ogletree Deakins. HANDS OFF JOE! FAIR CONTRACT NOW!”

Supporters can sign a petition to demand Brother Joe’s reinstatement at Action Network or find the link at the SCFL Facebook page. Supporters can also pick up solidarity yard signs at the South Central Federation of Labor at 1602 Park Street in Madison. 

Support workers at CUNA Mutual! Pick up your yard sign at the Madison Labor Temple, which are located inside the Labor Temple entrances.
