PORTLAND, CINCINNATI LOCALS RALLY AGAINST CUTBACKS IN JOBS AND SERVICE


Teresa Oller, steward from Portland OR Area Local, 
helps lead a rally against jobs and service cuts. 

In June, as the APWU bargaining team prepared for contract talks with the U.S. Postal Service, union members in Portland, Oregon and Cincinnati, Ohio rallied with supporters to protest job and service cuts that have led to long lines and delays in mail service.

Celebrate, Protect Your Benefits

Every year we recognize and celebrate the Social Security Act, enacted on Aug. 14, 1935, 83 years ago, and Medicare, enacted on July 30, 1965, 53 years ago. These two important laws were established to benefit workers in their old age, as retirees.

Our celebration this year during July and August includes continuing the fight to protect these earned benefits. All APWU members, along with their families, friends and neighbors, can participate in an action of recognition by supporting APWU legislative priorities for fair benefits for American seniors.
