Three locals and one retiree chapter will be rewarded for generating participation in the recent election of national union officers, Secretary-Treasurer Liz Powell has announced.

To be eligible for rewards, locals and chapters must have achieved participation of at least 50 percent. The winnings are to be used at the discretion of the locals and retiree chapters on behalf of the membership.

Three locals will receive $200.00 each for achieving at least 50 percent participation:

  • Vincennes (IN) Local
  • Lewistown (MT) Local
  • Chatsworth (CA) Local

No other locals qualified in any of the other categories.

Retiree Chapters

The Philadelphia BMC Local Retiree Chapter will receive $50. No other chapters qualified in any of the other categories.

“Congratulations to the locals and retiree chapters that achieved a high level of participation,” Powell said. “Unfortunately, voter turnout overall was extremely low, so we must redouble our efforts to encourage members to participate in union activities.”

The official results [PDF – Members Only] of the APWU Election of National Officers were certified by the American Arbitration Association on Oct. 7.
