05/07/2007 - Support for the Women’s Organizing Campaign is growing, with 89 locals and 17 state organizations participating, said Liz Powell, chairperson of the APWU subcommittee that is coordinating the drive.

Because of new interest in the campaign, the deadline for submitting membership applications for a special drawing has been extended until June 30. The contest offers a grand prize of a vacation trip for two; a second prize of $100 each for five entrants; and a third prize of $50 each for 10 entrants. In each case, the new member whose card is drawn and the APWU member who signed up the new member will be awarded prizes.

Organization Director Frank A. Romero is encouraging locals to submit membership forms as soon as possible. All new members are eligible to participate. To qualify for the drawing, a membership form and contest entry form must be received at the APWU national office within 30 days of the date shown on the membership form.

For additional supplies, or to sign up for the campaign, contact the Organization Department at 202-842-4228.
