Happy New Year! 2018 will be extremely challenging and busy as the fight continues to protect our jobs from the outrageous management onslaught of reversions, abolishments and threatened excessing. The 2018 elections, including issue-based ballot initiatives, are important to our future. The ongoing Stand Up for Safe Jobs campaign has the potential to reduce tens of thousands of workplace injuries. The APWU Biennial National Convention, the union’s highest authority, will help set the course for the coming years. Critical postal reform will need serious attention to be achieved.
