About the MVS Division

The Motor Vehicle Service Craft is composed of APWU members who transport mail and maintain postal vehicles. It is — and always has been — the best-organized craft in the APWU. Approximately two thirds of MVS members are drivers and one-fifth are mechanics. The Motor Vehicle Service Craft also includes Driver Safety Instructors who train and familiarize all employees with driving duties and MVS Clerks who work in Vehicle Maintenance Facilities and in Transportation Departments in mail processing plants.
