New Congress, Same Goals

The 2016 election is over. It is time to revamp our efforts to secure legislation to benefit the working class and protect the public Postal Service. The results of the election have caused a divide in this nation. It is a divide we must work to end. It is now more important than ever to stand up and fight for what is right.

Best Organized & Best COPA Locals In the APWU

08/30/2016 - From Northeast Region Coordinator John Dirzius: 

I hope everyone made it back home safe from the National Convention. It was great seeing all of you and participating in our union’s most important union meeting. As I have often stated and even from the podium at the Convention -  the Northeast Region leads the way in fighting important issues – thinking outside the box to enforce our contract – in providing our members the very best in representation – and in building a better and stronger APWU. Just take a look at who was at the microphones speaking out and on our many resolutions. I could not have been prouder and rest assure that the entire APWU takes note of our collective solidarity in our Region.

I have attached for your review a document provided at the Convention listing the ‘Best of the Organized Locals’ in the APWU. This is just another example of what we do well in the Northeast Region. Let my highlight and congratulate the ‘Top 3 Locals' in each category size as being the best: Boston Metro Area Local, Long Island Area Local, Greater CT Area Local, Red Bank Area Local, Lynn, MA Local, and the Rhode Island Postal Workers.

What Happens to COPA Requests?

01/01/2016 - (This article first appeared in the January-February 2016 issue of The American Postal Worker magazine.)

It was a pleasure to spend time with APWU brothers and sisters at the All-Craft Conference. I truly enjoyed the opportunity to discuss our legislative and political goals and efforts, both on the national level and in individual districts.
