SMS Text Messaging Program

APWU uses SMS text messaging to alert its members and interested individuals about APWU’s campaigns related to its mission, and to collect information that may assist the APWU’s campaigns. APWU uses the “short code”, which is currently 91990, as its SMS text messaging number.

By providing your telephone number to APWU, you consent to receive and authorize APWU to send recurring text messages from 91990 by an automatic telephone dialing system. Within a reasonable period after you have opted in to the program, APWU will send you an initial SMS text message confirming you have subscribed. APWU may periodically contact you by SMS text message about APWU’s campaigns from APWU’s short code.

You can unsubscribe from SMS text messages from APWU at any time by texting STOP to APWU’s short code. You will receive a single additional message confirming that you have been unsubscribed.

APWU will not share your telephone number or any other personally identifiable information sent to APWU through SMS text messaging with any third party. Every SMS text message sent by APWU to you will identify APWU as the sender, except for subsequent messages sent on the same day as the initial message.

APWU will not send you SMS text messages for any reason unrelated to an APWU campaign.
