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.

July COLA released!
Updated On: Oct 07, 2023

Your July COLA announced was announced today, Mike,

It's a big day if you’re a postal worker. The semi-annual cost of living adjustment (COLA) has been announced and all career employees covered by the main APWU-USPS collective bargaining agreement are getting a $0.48 per hour raise! That amounts to $998.00 a year for a full time, career postal worker.

The COLA will appear in paychecks dated Sept. 15, 2023 (Pay Period 20-2023).

These are union-won benefits. All career employees get these increases to keep up with rising inflation because APWU members fought hard and negotiated them in our union contract.

Postal Support Employees (PSEs) do not get COLA, but when they convert to career, the COLA increases are also included in their wages going forward.

Read more about your COLA and find out how you can help build a stronger union.

We stood together and won these COLAs at the negotiating table. We showed management that thousands of us wouldn’t settle for anything less. In fact, over the course of this contract we have gotten $2.39/hour more in our paychecks just from the COLAS, not even counting our annual raises and step increases!

This is the value of a union contract, and it starts with you and me. Please take a moment today to talk to a coworker who is not in our union and explain why we should stand together in our union to win raises like the one we got today.

You can find out all about the COLA and how you can help build our union here.

We know that we’re stronger together, with everyone inside the union.

In solidarity,

Pres. Mark Dimondstein
President, APWU
