“We are asking locals to reach out to APWU members, our sister postal unions, and other allies to stand with us at post offices on May 14 as we demonstrate support for Good Postal Service! Good Jobs! Good Contract!” said APWU President Mark Dimondstein.
“The next day, we will begin the final push of intense negotiations – around the clock, if necessary – so it’s important that we have a strong showing,” he added. “We can only win a good contract if APWU members and our families, friends and allies are actively engaged. So let’s build momentum!”
