Welcome to the Office and Professional Employees International Union Local 39
The Office and Professional Employees International Union are office, technical and professional employees working together to improve our jobs and the lives of our families. OPEIU is the first, and largest, labor union in the United States and Canada dedicated to professional, technical and office workers. Local 39's organization begins with its members. We represent over 3,000 professional, technical and clerical employees in the greater Madison, WI area.

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to evolve with each passing day, OPEIU wants to ensure its members are made aware of the myriad resources available to help during this uncertain time. The Speaker of the House, Rep. Nancy Pelosi (Calif.), just released an easy-to-follow primer on what the first three coronavirus stimulus packages mean for you and your family.

Jim Nussle Leaves Republican Party, Says GOP Left Him Behind

As the nation struggled with the aftermath of the invasion of the U.S. Capitol building by violent supporters of President Trump on Wednesday, CUNA President/CEO and longtime Republican Jim Nussle renounced his party affiliation late Wednesday.

“I will no longer claim I am a Republican tonight as I am outraged and devastated by the actions of too many elected Republicans (some I know and served with) and supporters,” Nussle announced on his Twitter feed. “Today a final line was crossed that I will not excuse. The GOP is NO more and left me and others behind.”
