The Day the Contract Expires
Wear Union Gear on Wednesday, May 20
05/16/2015 - On May 20 – the day our contract expires – show solidarity by wearing APWU-themed gear to work.
That’s the message from APWU President Mark Dimondstein.
“I urge you to wear a union T-shirt, cap, button or sticker. If you can’t get your hands on an APWU item, please wear blue,” he said.
“As the contract clock ticks down, let’s send a message to management that we stand together! Let’s send a message that we won’t stop fighting for Good Postal Service! Good Jobs! Good Contract!
For the Latest Info, Call the Contract Hotline
To stay informed of developments at the bargaining table as the expiration of the contract between the APWU and USPS approaches, union members are invited to call a telephone hotline.
The first update will be available on Saturday, May 16, at 6 p.m. To listen to the message, dial 1-866-412-8061.
Notices will be posted on www.apwu.org when new messages are recorded.
