UNIONS BUTT HEADS: Contract talks between the SEIU and the D.C. local of the Office and Professional Employees International Union -- which represents workers at the SEIU’s D.C. headquarters -- are at a standoff following weeks of mediation and a strike authorization from the OPEIU in March. The SEIU issued a statement Tuesday morning that OPEIU Local 2’s bargaining committee rejected “a path to settlement that included the kind of provisions that our members fight for in their contracts, and that not-yet-union workers can only dream of.”

SEIU on Tuesday issued a revised last, best, and final offer to OPEIU that the SEIU said “includes improvements to the contract that were discussed in mediation.” It would improve wages by 8 percent “over the course of the contract” and provide current staff with lifetime job security protections “upon five years of service.” But David Hoskins, chief shop steward of OPEIU Local 2, told Morning Shift that the offer eliminated layoff protections for new employees. The OPEIU has not notified the SEIU whether it will accept the offer, according to Hoskins. Read the SEIU’s statement here.
