08/08/2016 – Resolutions that will be considered by delegates to the APWU 23rd Biennial National Convention are now posted [Members Only] online at www.apwu.org. Delegates will debate and vote on the proposals that will guide the union’s work over the next two years. The resolutions address labor-management issues, workers’ solidarity, legislative topics, craft-specific items, and proposals to change the union’s constitution.
“We post the resolutions online to give union members and delegates the opportunity to discuss them before the convention begins,” said APWU President Mark Dimondstein. “Upon arrival at the convention, each delegate will receive a copy of the resolutions in book form, so they will be able to review each proposal as it is debated.”
In accordance with convention rules, additional resolutions may be presented at the National Convention, provided they have been properly authorized by locals, state organizations, or members-at-large.
A list of Labor-Management Resolutions adopted by convention delegates through 2012 [PDF – Members Only] is available, along with a list of Labor-Management Resolutions adopted in 2014 [PDF – Members Only]; these resolutions will not be considered again (except via a motion for reconsideration).
The convention will be held Aug. 22-25.
