APWU e-Team

In the current political climate, our politicians are constantly trying to cut the rights of Postal and other Federal workers.  From attempting to cut Saturday delivery to passing budgets that cut benefits to Postal workers, without our collective voices being heard we will not be able to resist these cuts.

For these reasons, I recommend that all employees, friends and family members join the APWU e-Team.  By signing up for the e-Team, you will get notices by e-mail whenever action is needed to support or reject a bill.  If we all stand together, we can make a difference and continue to earn the living wages we all deserve.

Please go to the APWU e-Team site and sign up now.
