Dear OPEIU Local 12 Members:

We all hope you and your family are safe and healthy during these times. Even though the shelter-in-place order is lifted, Governor Walz still has safe-in-place recommendations about no gathering of more than 10 people.

With that said, this Thursday, we are having our May General Membership Meeting at 6pm via Zoom. No in-person meeting this month.

We have recently sent those emails out to members’ personal emails, please check your spam folder if you do not see it. If you have not received an registration invite to the zoom meeting to your personal email, please update your records by following this link or call the OPEIU Local 12 office at 651-639-1212 and talk with our bookkeeper or email her at Once updated, we will send you a link.

OPEIU Members at Minneapolis Institute of Art Make the Museum Great

We Interviewed three OPEIU Members at the MIA

“How am I supposed to pick my favorite art piece? They’re all like my children!” As we wind along the halls of the Minneapolis Institute of Art, we’re surrounded by diverse and beautiful works of art from some of the biggest artists and some lesser known ones as well. OPEIU Local 12 members and MIA employees Leslie Ory Lewellen, Joe Doherty, and Debra Hegstrom navigate with ease through the second floor. As we walk, they brag with huge smiles on their faces about how the collection at the MIA is over 90,000 pieces and talk about all the exciting exhibits to come. Union Members at the MIA keep the museum running smoothly by doing every kind of work at the museum one could conceive.
