When workers join together in a union they have real power to affect positive change at work. When they form a union, workers have a real voice and the power to negotiate with management as equals.

The American Postal Workers Union is committed to supporting all workers in the postal/mail industry who seek to organize a union. If your job involves printing, stuffing or sorting mail, you work in the postal industry. Jobs in the postal industry also include drivers that haul mail for the US Postal Service, those that work in fulfillment companies, make or repair postal related equipment.

The Union Difference

Union members work together to negotiate and enforce a contract with management that guarantees the things you care about like decent raises, affordable health care, job security, and a stable schedule.

  • Union members earn better wages and benefits than workers who aren’t union members. On average, union workers’ wages are 27% higher than their nonunion counterparts.
  • More than 79% of union workers have jobs that provide health insurance benefits, but less than half of nonunion workers do.
  • Unions help bring more working people into the middle class. In fact, in states where people don’t have union rights, workers’ incomes are lower.
