The APWU is proud to announce the opening of the APWU History Center, “The Struggle Continues,” to recognize and share the history of postal workers and our union, highlighting postal workers’ courage, unity, and collective action! 

The center, developed under the initiative and guidance of APWU President Dimondstein, offers an inspirational look into our history including the Great Postal Strike of 1970 and the merger of the five unions into one American Postal Workers Union. It highlights some of our struggles, campaigns and victories – such as the ongoing fight against postal privatization, for strong union contracts and safe workplaces, organizing the unorganized, vote-by-mail, legislative challenges, and much more.

The APWU History Center is located at APWU National Headquarters in Washington, DC. 

Members visiting Washington, DC are encouraged and welcomed to visit the APWU History Center and to experience the origins of our great union, and the storied and ongoing fights for good jobs, fair pay, and benefits, and a vibrant public Postal Service.

The union is working to digitize the History Center so it can be viewed online.
