Building on our solid new union contract and historic postal legislation, the APWU launched a national organizing drive – “Building Union Power” – with the bold goal of signing up 5000 new members. Together we did it!

Thermometer reads: Progress meter - goal reached - We did it! Thanks to your support, over 5,000 new members joined APWU between May 1 and July 1!

From May 1 - July 1, Local and State Organizations and union activists across the country worked tirelessly to have one-on-one conversations with non-members, sharing information on all that the Union has achieved and signing people up as we continue to “Build Union Power.”

“It is exciting that we reached our ambitious goal, shared APWU President Mark Dimondstein. “Everyone enjoys the benefits of union organization and everyone should pay their fair share. More members builds more strength at the bargaining table, in the grievance procedure, in the fight for workplace safety and in the ongoing to struggle to protect and expand the public Postal Service and our jobs.”

“We know the enthusiasm is still high. We know many locals are still planning organizing activities. So, let’s keep the terrific work and our great momentum going,” said Organization Director Anna Smith.

Organizing is truly the lifeblood of the union and never stops. From Orientations to training classes, from the workroom floor to outside activities, let’s continue to have those needed conversations until every non-member joins our great Union and helps make it ever stronger into the future!

Congratulations to all who participated! The Organizing Department is energized and ready to help you plan and navigate organizing within your area!
