The President oversees all the activities conducted by the officers and staff of every department, division, and committee defined by the APWU Constitution.

Team APWU - Bringing Home The Gold!

Wow! Just months into 2022 and great news on two fronts:

FIRST: Our Collective Bargaining Agreement covering the wages, benefits, and working conditions of 200,000 postal workers has been overwhelmingly ratified with a 94% “Yes” vote by those who cast ballots. The success of this round of bargaining reflects the power of unity and solidarity, beginning with you the member, the very foundation of our union.

SECOND: The Postal Service Reform Act passed both the House of Representatives and the Senate. The vote in the House was a strong bi-partisan vote of 342-92! It passed the Senate with 79 votes, enough bi-partisan support to overcome the undemocratic 60 vote filibuster rules. You, along with many friends and allies, made thousands of calls to your Senators urging support and bringing this vital legislation over the finish line! Congratulations to one and all on these outstanding accomplishments!
