Pittsburgh Metro Area Local Retiree Chapter Celebrates CLC Award 

Members of the Pittsburgh Metro Area Local Retiree Chapter had a lot to celebrate at their annual holiday awards luncheon. 

John Richards, Pittsburgh Metro Area Local Retiree Chapter President, reported to The American Postal Worker that the chapter was presented an award from the Beaver-Lawrence Central Labor Council for their “successful conclusion of the Stop Staples campaign” back in May, and celebrated it at the December luncheon.

The Chapter, along with National Postal Mail Handlers Union Local 332, honored National Association of Letter Carriers Branch 84 Local President Ted Lee and APWU Pittsburgh Metro Area Local Secretary-Treasurer Bob Montana at the event, who are both on the Western Pennsylvania Postal Workers Solidarity Committee.

Retirees Director Nancy Olumekor and Legislative & Political Director Judy Beard attended the event.

APWU National officers joined hundreds of thousands of women (and men) across the country on Jan. 20 for the 2nd Annual Women’s March. Participants were protesting the Trump Administration’s policies regarding women’s rights, as well as calling for more legal protections for women in their daily lives – including at work.

APWU members in other cities also came out to participate in the events closest to them.
