On average, nearly 20 people per minute are physically abused by an intimate partner in the United States, according to statistics from the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence. During one year, this equates to more than 10 million women and men.

OPEIU Local 6 is excited to let members know that the union and the trial court has negotiated a memorandum of understanding (MOU) allowing 15 paid days of domestic violence leave. It is our sincere hope that none of our members ever have to use this benefit, but we hope it helps you rest easier to know it is available.

For the contents of the MOU, see the PDF file linked below:
