    What a shame it would be if APWU actually valued our retirees’ contributions, huh?

    “The remarkably high participation of retirees in the NALC is due to the NALC Constitution. It gives retirees full voting* and participation rights. A NALC retiree’s dues is $7 per annum; APWU is $36. When a NALC member completes 50 years membership, they receive a Gold Membership Card which entitles him/her to all privileges of membership in the NALC without payment of dues, per capita tax, or special assessments.

    *except for any matter pertaining to ratification of a national agreement, LMOU, or proposed work stoppage.”
