Stand In Solidarity!
The struggle of postal workes for decent wages, benefits and working conditions, as well as for dignity and respect on the job, closely parallels the struggles faced by working families everywhere.
The APWU stands united with its brothers and sisters in the labor movement for good jobs, healthcare, retirement security, and education for all Americans.
We encourage every APWU member to learn about the many important issues facing our nation — and to vote in every local, state and national election.
One way to stay informed is to visit the AFL-CIO Web pages that track many important issues: keeping good jobs in America, making healthcare affordable, protecting Social Security, expanding civil and human rights, and defending our right to organize and bargain collectively.
