Welcome to the Office and Professional Employees International Union Local 29
OPEIU Local 29 is a dynamic, respected labor organization, dedicated to improving the working conditions of office, technical, professional and health care employees. We represent over 6,000 employees at more than 300 locations.  We participated with numerous other labor unions in the country through an unprecedented bargaining process that broke new ground in labor relations and established a model for health care with Kaiser Permanente. OPEIU 29 and OPEIU 3 membership voted overwhelmingly to approve the merger between the unions effective April 1, 2016.   The merger will continue to model the professional representation and collective bargaining for OPEIU members while advancing and strengthening the members’ economic, social and professional interests.  The merged unions share mutual goals and objectives and recognize the importance of representation, collective bargaining and organizing workers.

It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent, but the one most responsive to change.  ~Charles Darwin

Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) Heritage Month

Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) Heritage Month
In May 2023, we commemorate Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) Heritage Month, a time when we honor the achievements and rich histories of these minority groups in America. This observance originated as Asian/Pacific American Heritage Week in 1978 and was officially established by President Jimmy Carter. May holds significance as it marks the arrival of the first Japanese immigrants to the United States in 1843, on May 7, as well as Golden Spike Day on May 10, which celebrates the completion of the transcontinental railroad—a monumental project largely constructed by Chinese laborers.

Workers Memorial Day - April 28, 2023




Union Rights are Under Attack —We’re Standing Up & Fighting Back!

In this first report, we find that by bargaining together through unions, California workers increase their earnings and have more access to health and retirement benefits, thereby reducing reliance on the state’s public safety net programs.

Key findings include:

  •  Workers covered by a union contract in California earn an average of 12.9% more than their non-union peers with similar ages and educational attainment working in similar industries.
  • Overall, a union contract increases an individual worker’s annual earnings by $5,800, for a combined total of $18.5 billion across California. In low-income regions like the San Joaquin Valley, the difference is more dramatic, increasing a worker’s earnings on average by $7,000 each year.
  • 670,000 more Californians have health insurance through their employer as a result of collective bargaining.
  • 830,000 more Californians are offered a retirement plan by their employer as a result of collective bargaining.
