Coming in 2019

01/17/2019 - (This article first appeared in the January/February 2019 issue of the American Postal Worker magazine) 

By Organization Director Anna Smith

Organizing is more than signing up the non-member; it is also engaging our union brothers and sisters as well as members of our communities. It’s about building our labor movement. It’s about ending the divide-and conquer tactics of our enemies. It’s about building up our union at every level of the organization.

As we begin 2019, inviting non-members to after-work events, parties, gatherings, bowling, etc. cannot be accepted any more. Understand, these aren’t our friends. It does not mean that we need to be rude or demoralizing, as every non-member is a potential member. What it does mean, however, is that they are working against all of us. While we fight and preserve what we have – the benefits that support our families, the wages we receive – these non-members work directly against us. If you start evaluating and looking at who has your back, you will find it is not the non-member standing next to you.
