Domestic Violence Awareness Month - Week of Action

Domestic violence is a pattern of coercive, controlling behavior that can include physical abuse, emotional or psychological abuse, sexual abuse, or financial abuse (using money and financial tools to exert control).  Globally, the victims of domestic violence are overwhelmingly woman, and women tend to experience more severe forms of violence.  Despite historical practice, Domestic Violence is not acceptable and it is against the law.

October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month.  October 15-21, 2017 is the National Week of Action.  Click here for more information.  Together we can end domestic abuse.



October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month

This October, OPEIU Local 537 is proud to participate in National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Breast cancer is the second most common kind of cancer in women. About 1 in 8 women born today in the United States will get breast cancer at some point.

The good news is that most women can survive breast cancer if it’s found and treated early.

If you are a woman age 40 to 49, talk with your doctor about when to start getting mammograms and how often to get them.

If you are a woman age 50 to 74, be sure to get a mammogram every 2 years. You may also choose to get them more often.

Talk to a doctor about your risk for breast cancer, especially if a close family member of yours had breast or ovarian cancer. Your doctor can help you decide when and how often to get mammograms.


Working People Want Freedom - Not Corporation Overreach

A powerful coalition of small business owners, community leaders and regular working people from every corner of Missouri delivered 163 boxes of petitions with 310,567 signatures to halt a new right to work law and put the brakes on corporate and right-wing overreach.

The signatures represent almost three times more than what’s needed to put the new right to work law on the ballot, so voters can decide whether Missouri should enact a law that lowers pay and makes workplaces more dangerous.
 
On average, pay in right to work states is $681 dollars less per month, and the chances of being killed on the job is 49% higher. 

Business owners and workers alike said right to work should be rejected for needlessly interfering in the workplace. 

America’s working people stand in solidarity with the working people of Missouri. 

RIGHT-TO-WORK IS WRONG
