    Retirees definitely need a stronger voice at National Convention, especially now given the fact current proposed postal reform legislation will fundamentally change Retiree FEHBP to help “solve” the USPS’ fiscal problems. APWU HQ has taken the position they will support legislation that allows this to happen.

    Yeah, we (retirees) definitely need a stronger voice and vote – or perhaps we (retirees) should manage and distribute the enormous amount of COPA we raise to protect ourselves. Please support this reasonable resolution!

    Why do we as retirees need more delegates at the convention? We are no longer part of the bargaining unit. The overwhelming defeat of all the retiree resolutions last year does not bode well for passage in 2020. The ongoing feud within the Southwest Coastal Area Local seems to have hardened the delegates resolve. I feel that we as retirees should pass the baton and do what we can to resolve this divide.

    Ernest, the word representation is used because that is the title of the APWU Constitution Section 6 which addresses who can vote and speak at the National APWU Convention.

    Why are we so out of touch or plain stupid asking and looking for further Representation. Its high time we abandon the representation as stated and those in place to speak on our behalf should be renamed Retired Labor Advisors. When we use the words of Representation, we are giving all our rights away and the person with the Representation, (Representative) can do whatever they choose to do. Please learn what that word dictates and how it will be, and is, applied. Brothers and Sisters please scrutinize the language, and words we use and the true meaning of what we say and do.

    “A hint to the Wise is sufficient”, no longer will be able to say we didn’t know, This is a Warning.
