Welcome to OPEIU Local 13

O.P.E.I.U., Local 13 was chartered in St. Louis, Missouri on February 1, 1945. We service members at Credit Unions, Labor Unions and Labor Councils in Missouri, Illinois and Texas. Our goal is to provide workers with job security, good wages and benefits, as well as fair and equitable working conditions.

- Rich Trumka, AFL-CIO President
