In the last issue of The American Postal Worker, APWU National put out the call to active members and retirees to submit slogan ideas for the upcoming Contract Campaign. Following a historic year for the country and for postal workers, we called on members to submit ideas for slogans that incorporated our essential work and tremendous community support, while focusing on our goal of negotiating a contract with good wages, strong benefits and safe workplaces.

APWU members answered the call: over 2,000 slogan ideas were submitted, showing the strong enthusiasm and support for the Contract Campaign on the workroom floor. The National Executive Board is proud to announce that the winning entry and choice for our 2021 Contract Campaign Slogan is APWU – Our Union, Our Contract, Our Future! The entry was submitted by Meagan Glavin, of the South Shore Area Local (MA).

The second-place entry was Union Strong All Day Long, submitted by Melani Brown of the Saint Louis Gateway District Area Local. The thirdplace entry was The Fight For Our Future Starts Today!, submitted by Harvey Merrett of the Columbia Area Local (SC).

Glavin will receive a $2,500 prize for their submission, and Brown and Merrett will receive $1,000 and $500, respectively.

APWU – Our Union, Our Contract, Our Future will now be used in a new logo, to go on t-shirts, buttons and stickers that will be available to purchase. Members will be informed on apwu. org when these Contract Campaign materials are online for purchase on the APWU store.

“Congratulations to Meagan Glavin. Thank you to all of the participants for showing your passion for the upcoming contract negotiations through your submissions,” said President Dimondstein.
