After the retirement of two long-serving National Business Agents (NBAs), Jack Crawford (Dallas Region) and Brian Dunn (Northwest Region), Clerk Division Director Lamont Brooks was tasked with naming their successors to complete the remainder of this term of office. The process included giving an opportunity for all interested candidates to provide their qualifications to Director Brooks, who took input for the possible replacements from local presidents and NBAs in their respective regions, and Clerk Division officers at headquarters.

Upon serious consideration of all applicants, the successors were presented to the Clerk Division National Executive Council (NEC), which consists of the three headquarters officers and the Clerk Division NBAs, in accordance with the APWU Constitution & By-Laws. By unanimous approval of the Clerk Division NEC, Morning Dunn was selected to fill the vacancy of NBA, Northwest Region and Carlton Williams was chosen as the new NBA for the Dallas Region.

Morning Dunn began her union career as a steward in Mountain Home, ID. After transferring to Fairview, OR in 2016, she became a steward there, and was soon elected to the position of District 1 Representative for the Oregon Postal Workers Union (OPWU). In 2022, Dunn was elected OPWU President, the position she held until her appointment to NBA. She was instrumental in the training and assistance of stewards throughout the state, which led to the full-time conversions of 83 PTFs and over $2 million in back pay. She was also an arbitration advocate in her area.

Carlton Williams served in several capacities in the Dallas, TX Area Local – Steward, BMC Clerk Business Agent, Assistant Clerk Craft Director, and Clerk Craft Director. He was also Clerk Craft Director for the Texas Postal Workers Union (TPWU) before being elected TPWU President in 2013, a position he has held since then. Carlton is an experienced arbitration advocate who has presented numerous cases in both Texas and Louisiana. 

“I would like to thank all of the candidates that applied, and I encourage them to continue to pursue their goals in the APWU,” commented Clerk Division Director Brooks. “Both Morning and Carlton received considerable praise from many of the Local Presidents in what will now be their areas of representation, in addition to building a strong background of work themselves. Our headquarters division officers and the NBAs have offered our support and assistance to them as they begin a new chapter in their Union lives. We look forward to working with them to better serve our Clerk Division members,” Brooks continued.

Morning Dunn will begin serving as NBA on April 8, 2024, and Carlton Williams will start on May 4, 2024. The Clerk Division offers our congratulations to Carlton Williams and Morning Dunn. We wish them success in their new positions.
