APWU Members and Allies Continue Push to Save the Post Office

Postal Service advocates rally in San Francisco

On November 17, APWU members and community allies came together in virtual and in-person events across the country to reaffirm our demands for $25 billion in immediate COVID-19 financial relief from Congress and a permanent reversal of Postmaster General Louis DeJoy’s delays.

During the election, postal workers processed a record number of mail-in ballots, moving “heaven and earth” to make sure all 65 million reached their location in time to be processed. This success would not have been possible without the work of APWU members on local election task forces, who made sure no ballot was left behind.

Coronavirus (COVID-19) Information

This page is a resource for members to find information on Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19).

Your union officers are holding ongoing conversations with the Postal Service about COVID-19. We will continue to be in discussions with the Postal Service as the spread of the disease widens around the world and new information is learned.

The APWU always prioritizes health and safety and is engaged on this issue. We are not allowing the Postal Service to take a passive approach to the risks of the disease.

One Team, One Fight

One Team, One Fight

Our CATs were born as Contract Action Teams in 2015.

They were a hugely successful part of our Fighting Today for A Better Tomorrow Contract Campaign. Building on the activism of Contract Action Teams, CATs have changed their names to: Collective Action Teams.

Now in addition to contract campaigns, CATS will educate, agitate, organize, and mobilize members and allies to build a culture of collective action and help members become a stronger part of all of the union’s campaigns.
