Due to the concerning and rapid developments surrounding the Coronavirus pandemic and related health and safety concerns regarding travel combined with government advice on avoiding large gatherings, the APWU has cancelled the 50th Anniversary of the Great Postal Strike commemoration that had been scheduled for NYC on March 28, 2020.
We will move the celebration to the APWU National Convention in August.
A strike commemoration brochure will be mailed out to every local and state organization by the end of the week.
The national APWU is producing a new anniversary strike video which will be available soon.
The national leadership thanks NY Metro Local President Jonathan Smith and the Local Officers and staff for their diligent efforts and hard work in planning the event as the host Local.
