The APWU is in the midst of a major battle: The fight to win a good contract for our members, while we fight for a vibrant, public Postal Service for the people of the country.
More than 70 national organizations have joined forces with APWU to launch A Grand Alliance to Save Our Public Postal Service.
USPS efforts to cut the nation’s mail processing network persists, but the union is fighting back.
Privatizers on Wall Street and in Congress are eager to defund and dismantle the Postal Service so they can turn over the profitable pieces to their cronies in private industry, undermining universal service to the American people.
Across the country, the people are fighting back against the closure of post offices and shorter hours of operation, which weaken service and threaten the future of our beloved national treasure.
The USPS is well positioned to provide basic financial services to those whose needs are unmet by the traditional financial sector.
Legislation that preserves the USPS as a public service for the American people is an over-arching goal of the APWU.
Postal workers and customers across the country have a message for the Postmaster General and the USPS Board of Governors: Stop Delaying America's Mail!
The APWU is fighting to stop a shady deal between the USPS and Staples, which jeopardizes mail service and local post offices – along with thousands of living-wage jobs.
