After much reflection and deliberation I have come to the very serious decision that I will be seeking the position of National Business Agent A for American Postal Workers Union in our 2019 Election of Officers.
Having served as an Officer for the APWU during the past 27 years I firmly believe my extensive experience as an Advocate, Steward. Negotiator, Mediator and Educator will now – at this moment in time – best serve all the Membership of the union.
It is my mission as National Business Agent of our Union to deploy an unprecedented combination of contributions of value and achievements in strategic contract enforcement and educational production initiatives.
My wide-ranging, proven record in negotiations, arbitration preparation and presentation, resolution composition and procurement and educational materials’ creation and teaching brings to the table a never-before-seen wealth of experience, knowledge and leadership.
I am ready with the serious commitment necessary to go up against postal management to ensure members’ rights are protected and the Collective Bargaining Agreement is enforced.
In the coming months I am excited by and look forward to the ongoing dialogue and exchange about where our Union is and where our Union must be as we move forward, further into the 21st Century.
Rest assured, I am fully and seriously committed to the future ahead for our Union and will continue to make the welfare of each and every member my priority.
Join with me – on this journey – to secure the future of the American Postal Workers Union.
Yours, for the future of our Union,
