Q & A with Quanisha Mcneal

03/01/2017 - (This article first appeared in the March-April 2017 issue of The American Postal Worker magazine.)

From time-to-time, the American Postal Worker interviews union leaders to learn why they got involved in the American Postal Workers Union. In this issue, we talk with Quanisha Mcneal, a 25-year-old member of the New York Metro Area Local. She started working at the post office in November 2014 as a clerk, and was appointed last year to be a part of the Young Workers Committee. As a Postal Support Employee (PSE) her experience represents over a quarter of the employees the APWU represents.

Best Organized & Best COPA Locals In the APWU

08/30/2016 - From Northeast Region Coordinator John Dirzius: 

I hope everyone made it back home safe from the National Convention. It was great seeing all of you and participating in our union’s most important union meeting. As I have often stated and even from the podium at the Convention -  the Northeast Region leads the way in fighting important issues – thinking outside the box to enforce our contract – in providing our members the very best in representation – and in building a better and stronger APWU. Just take a look at who was at the microphones speaking out and on our many resolutions. I could not have been prouder and rest assure that the entire APWU takes note of our collective solidarity in our Region.

I have attached for your review a document provided at the Convention listing the ‘Best of the Organized Locals’ in the APWU. This is just another example of what we do well in the Northeast Region. Let my highlight and congratulate the ‘Top 3 Locals' in each category size as being the best: Boston Metro Area Local, Long Island Area Local, Greater CT Area Local, Red Bank Area Local, Lynn, MA Local, and the Rhode Island Postal Workers.
