Supreme Court Justice Ketanji Brown Jackson

April 7, 2022

OPEIU Applauds Senate Confirmation of Justice Jackson to SCOTUS

We applaud the Senate's swift confirmation of Ketanji Brown Jackson to the United States Supreme Court earlier today. As the first Black woman and first public defender to sit on the Supreme Court, Justice Jackson's confirmation is a milestone in the history of our nation. Throughout her confirmation hearings, Justice Jackson displayed a strong sense of integrity and intellectual vigor, despite attacks on her impressive credentials, leaving no doubt her nomination to the court was well-considered and well-deserved.

We congratulate her on her groundbreaking confirmation. With cases on the docket impacting workers' rights and the very future of our democracy, we are pleased to have a principled jurist like Justice Jackson sitting on our nation's highest court.

People in Ukraine are in grave danger of physical harm, families have fled their homes seeking refuge in neighboring countries, and others are sheltering from bombs falling in major cities. Normal working life has been forced to stop. Trade Unions are supporting Ukraine. The ITUC’s Ukrainian member organizations FPU and KVPU are providing support to families who desperately need assistance. Trade unions in neighboring countries including Poland, Slovakia, Hungary, Romania and Moldova are supporting the increasing number of refugees.  If you wish to join the Trade Unions in support of the people of Ukraine, click here for further information.

OPEIU is pleased to offer the newest union benefit for all OPEIU members — the OPEIU Free College Benefit. Just as the name implies, OPEIU members and their families can now earn an associate degree completely free of charge.
With all the expenses that working families have to deal with these days, it’s good to know that meeting the costs of rising tuition and textbooks doesn’t have to be one of them. If you have children graduating from high school who are hoping to attend college or are looking for a way to advance your own career, the OPEIU Free College Benefit is here to help. Every OPEIU member or retired member, as well as spouses, children, grandchildren and dependents of OPEIU members, can earn a two-year degree online for free. You read that right — free college just for being an OPEIU member in good standing.

OPEIU has partnered with Eastern Gateway Community College to provide all members and their families access to their classes online. Eastern Gateway is an accredited, non-profit public institution with campuses serving eastern Ohio, but OPEIU members and their families can enroll in the distance learning program from anywhere in the country and earn a participating online associate degree and certificates with absolutely no out-of-pocket costs for tuition, fees or e-books.
