April 16, 2020
After much thought and consideration for the safety of our Local and State delegates, national officers, families, guests and friends, and the ability to have a democratic and fully participatory convention, the National Executive Board has made the difficult decision to postpone the APWU 25th Biennial National Convention scheduled in Los Angeles, CA this coming August.
The National Executive Board will soon be discussing where to go from here. There will be no stones left unturned in attempting to reschedule the convention in late 2020, if possible, or sometime in 2021.
Locals/States need to cancel their hotel and travel arrangements as soon as possible.
The postponement of the national convention will allow those Local unions who were unable to hold meetings and the State organizations who postponed their 2020 conventions/conferences to hold their meetings/elections prior to the National Convention.
Please continue to send any and all convention resolutions to email@example.com
Any and all questions related to the postponement of the convention can be sent to Hannah Decker or Annette August-Taylor at firstname.lastname@example.org
On behalf of the National Executive Board, thanks for all you do, be well and stay safe in these trying times.
