Communication is Key

It has come to our attention that a large number of emails are being returned, inhibiting our ability to communicate with you, the members.  If you have not received an email message in the past two weeks, please do the following:

If you have used your USPS email, the system will reject the Union's email. Please use your private email. Rest assured we do not share your email with anyone, especially marketers.

If you have used a private email, make sure that our emails are not being placed in your spam folder. Mark the emails as not spam, or place in the white list.

Check the email in your profile, and make sure it is entered correctly.

Timely communication is integral to our mission, to keep you, the member informed. Please help us help you.

Take Action! Your Retirement and Job at Stake!!
Updated On: Oct 11, 2017

APWU members made 5,000 calls during our call-in Day of Action to fight the House Budget Proposal, but our fight is not over.

This Wednesday, Oct. 4, the House of Representatives is scheduled to vote on their 2018 Budget Proposal.

NOW IS THE TIME TO KEEP UP THE PRESSURE. Let your Representative know that their constituents are deeply concerned.

CALL 1-844-402-1001 NOW. Tell your member of Congress to VOTE NO against any budget that includes attacks to postal and federal employee benefits, including retirement benefits, or undermines the public Postal Service itself!

As currently written, this budget will slash the pay and benefits of postal employees. It calls for:

  • Increasing employee pension contributions into FERS, amounting to a pay cut of thousands of dollars a year for each FERS postal employee.

  • Taking away the Social Security supplement for FERS employees who retire before they are eligible for Social Security benefits.

  • Outright eliminating pensions for new hires.

It also moves the Postal Service “on budget,” which could subject the USPS to federal government shutdowns as well as further restricting delivery and postal services.

If this disastrous budget is implemented, there is also concern that Cost of Living Adjustments (COLA) on FERS retirement benefits could be eliminated and COLAs on current civil service retirees would be reduced, as previously proposed by the White House.  

Let Congress know that the Federal budget should not be balanced on the backs of working families!

As always, thank you for your activism!
