When David Rodriguez first began at the U.S. Post Office Department in 1958, employees would show up and have to wait until work was available, resulting in 12- to 15-hour days with minimal pay.

Below are quotes from various APWU local and state publications throughout the country. All the publications listed are part of the Postal Press Association.

“The union is you, me and the co-worker next to you. The union is all of us. We, as officers, have a job to represent, but without you as members standing up and standing behind the officers, there is no power in the union. If things are not the way they should be, or you feel something more needs to be done, then the union needs you to stand up for that. The officers can solve some things with class action grievances but if you want to see change, it requires UNITY and all of us working together to get the change you deserve and want.” — Mike Mize, Michigan Postal Workers Union President, Auto City Flint Facts
