The Secretary-Treasurer seeks to increase union revenue by encouraging non-members to join, and is responsible for the collection and proper disbursement of union funds. The Secretary-Treasurer's Department offers in-depth training to local and state union officers who have financial responsibilities for their organizations.

We also provide training on how to conduct local and state union elections, consistent with the rules of the U.S. Department of Labor and the Labor Management Reporting and Disclosure Act.

The Secretary-Treasurer's Department is responsible for interpreting the APWU National Constitution and Bylaws. The department assists local unions and state affiliates by reviewing their constitutions and bylaws and alerting them to any violations of the law or conflicts with the APWU Constitution and Bylaws.

The Secretary-Treasurer's office serves as the liaison to the APWU's Deaf/Hard of Hearing Task Force, which makes recommendations to the national union on issues facing deaf workers and their families.

As we navigate working through the various circumstances COVID-19 has placed upon all of us, finding and utilizing acceptable resources that will permit local and state presidents to conduct union business is important.

The training showed how to utilize Zoom as a resource to facilitate local union meetings, conventions and elections, and assist officers in fulfilling constitutional provisions and LMRDA requirements. The Zoom Meeting training covered how to plan your meetings and the various features available to use during your Zoom meetings. State and local presidents also received governance requirements for Zoom meetings and a participant guide to use as a reference. Zoom is not new technology.
