Elect Charles P. Smith APWU Director of Research and Education (endorsement by 21cpw admin)

charles_2I fully support and endorse Charles P. Smith for the position of APWU Director of Research and Education.¬† Charles has been a dedicated leader and advocate for¬†the APWU rank-and-file membership. ¬†As President, he has successfully represented the Washington State Postal Workers Union membership¬†in the grievance-arbitration process and been a¬†voice for the rank-and-file at National and Regional¬†Conventions.¬† Charles has¬†“walked the walk” protesting and demonstrating¬†on behalf¬†of work floor members in the fight¬†against postal privatization and downsizing efforts.¬† In 2011, I¬†was proud to count Charles as one of the enlightened few¬†who protested with me¬†on the White House sidewalk, exposing the truth about the overfunding of postal pension plans and the phony financial crisis caused by the absurd prefunding mandates of the PAEA.

DangerEducatedAmong¬†his accomplishments, Charles founded the much touted WAPWU Stewards College nine¬†years ago¬†and¬†it is¬†considered by students¬†to be¬†one of APWU’s best educational training opportunities.¬†¬† The caliber of APWU leaders who instruct are second to none.¬† Skills, methods¬†and winning strategies¬†are taught in such a way¬†that stewards,¬†upon returning home, are fully confident and¬†armed to successfully engage in battle with evil, corrupt, and incompetent postal management.

As an APWU Retiree-Activist and website administrator of the 21st Century Postal Worker, I’m involved in many projects in service to the rank-and-file membership and Charles has always assisted me in my requests for information, strategy and advice. ¬†I can always count on Charles to research and expeditiously provide information I need.¬† He has also done an excellent job of making an organized wealth¬†of¬†information available on the WAPWU website.

It’s time to modernize our Research and Education Department.¬† I believe WE Can Do Better, and in fact, WE Must Do Better in the APWU Research and Education Department.¬† We Will Do Better with Charles P. Smith.¬† I’m confident Charles will¬†never settle for mediocrity when he brings his invaluable experience, insight and acumen to the position of Director.

I strongly urge all APWU members to elect Charles P. Smith APWU Director of Research and Education.
