With the Collective Bargaining Agreement set to expire in one month, APWU negotiators – and members – are preparing to turn up the heat! "As we enter the final month of bargaining, it will soon become clear whether management is serious about reaching a negotiated settlement," said President Mark Dimondstein. "Our bargaining team is pursuing every opportunity to win a contract that is fair to our members and that allows us to give the people of the country the service they expect and deserve," he said.
The union is launching an ambitious program to mobilize support for the final stretch, including a National Day of Action on May 14 and a campaign to gather signatures on postcards addressed to Postmaster General Megan Brennan bearing the message, "I Stand with Postal Workers." A Contract Town Hall Call is set for May 6.
