About the Human Relations Department

There’s more to being a progressive union than achieving and enforcing a contract — and that’s where the Human Relations Department comes in.  Our programs and benefits inspire members to participate in the union and give them a sense of inclusion, contribution, and ownership.

File OWCP Claims with ECOMP!

The Office of Workers’ Compensation Programs at the Department of Labor has created an online portal to facilitate workers’ claims. It is called the Employees’ Compensation Operations and Management Portal (ECOMP). CA-1 claims for COVID-19 are also accessible through the ECOMP program. While it is not mandatory to file using the ECOMP program, we would like to encourage all our members to use this system when filing a claim for injury.

For more information on ECOMP, visit, apwu.org/ecomp.
