    If you’d like to compare contracts I’ll see the 4.7% increase over Dimondstein’s first contract 2016-2019 and raise you the 17.9% we enjoyed in the 2006-2009 contract when Greg Bell was at the negotiating table. We are falling behind. We need to put our money on top notch lawyers and negotiators instead of making the APWU Store wealthy by selling t-shirts.

    I look forward to this year’s union election. I think all APWU members and Retirees will like Greg Bell as our next National APWU, AFL-CIO Union President.

    I had the pleasure to work in Washington, DC with Greg and know the APWU will benefit with Greg Bell as National APWU President.

    I think our current National President has lost his way. The 2019 Tentative Agreement was not good for the membership and we may have to suffer once the interest arbitration reflects what our current president supported and rejected by the Rank and File Bargaining Committee.

    I encourage all retirees and regular union members not retired to support and vote for Greg Bell.

    I urge our members to compare the contract increases we enjoyed when Greg Bell was at negotiating on our behalf with recent contracts. Greg Bell and Bill Burrus gave us good quality contracts. Recently we have fallen behind. What will we tell our Members when they see McDonald’s and Walmart workers getting 15% increases while we get 1.25%? What will we tell our Members when Health Insurance premiums double like they did this year (APWU CDHP)? What will we tell our Members when they see PSA’s combig back to Maintenance and MVS Crafts and 25% in Clerk Craft?

    Will we tell them “Let’s show solidarity.” It is time to decide between the divide and conquer strategy of promoting “Group and Gender” based Campaigning and back to basics negotiations that provided Postal Workers with contract gains we were once proud of and were never willing to apologize for.

    Solidarity to All my Union Sisters and Brothers as one group and not individual factions with its main goal of re-election.
