The rally concluded a hugely successful petition drive launched after current Postmaster General Megan Brennan announced in October that she would retire on Jan. 31, 2020.

Fighting Forward

(This article first appeared in the November/December 2019 issue of the American Postal Worker magazine) 

The following are excerpts from President Dimondstein’s installation speech given on Oct. 31, 2019 in Las Vegas, NV:

I am deeply honored to be re-elected by our members for a third term as national president. I congratulate all who have been elected. Join me in wishing the outgoing officers the very best and thanking them for their contributions and dedication to the APWU and postal workers.

Our election is over. Now principled unity is key, as we battle corporate greed, Wall Street privatizers, a hostile political environment, and those in management who are undermining the Postal Service.

Together, working with you, we are marching forward and building an activist, winning union. We achieved the 2015 contract stopping the downward spiral of concessionary bargaining and winning more job security, protected jobs in the victorious Stop Staples battle, built A Grand Alliance to Save Our Public Postal Service, converted 66,000 Postal Support Employees to career, negotiated important settlements that protect our work, fought against plant closings, aggressively enforced the contract, encouraged new and young workers to step up, strengthened the retirees department, improved cooperation among the four postal unions, campaigned for expanded services including postal banking, practiced solidarity with other unions and workers, improved communications with the members, and built an impressive fightback campaign in the critical fight against postal privatization.
