APWU members include USPS career employees in four divisions: Clerk, Maintenance, Motor Vehicle, and Support Services

The APWU will always strive to bring good wages, benefits, and job security to our members. The benefits we enjoy are not given to us voluntarily by the Postal Service - every benefit is fiercely negotiated. The benefits career employees enjoy because of the hard work of  APWU sisters and brothers include: Cost-of-Living Adjustments (COLA), healthc are and retirement benefits, annual leave, sick leave, holidays, protection against layoffs and dignity in the workplace. 

Membership in the APWU shows a commitment to working together for better pay and benefits, as well as for dignity and respect on the job. It represents our understanding of the principle of strength through unity, both in demanding our rights on the job and in speaking to our nation's leaders about issues that are important to working Americans.

''It shall be the objective of the APWU to secure through collective bargaining and legislative effort a safe and healthy work environment, better working conditions and a better standard of living for the members of the APWU and their families."

Article 2 of the National Constitution.
