About the American Postal Workers Union

The APWU-American Postal Workers Union-is a national organization of postal employees dedicated to advancing the interest of our members and their families. Representing 330, 000 workers in every state and territory of the United States, the APWU is the largest union of postal workers in the world. It is recognized as the collective bargaining agent for postal workers in the clerk, motor vehicle service and maintenance crafts, as well as workers employed in support services; infomation systems/accounting service centers, mail equipment shops, material distribution centers, and operating services facilities. The APWU also represents workers in the private-sector postal industry, including mail haulers and mail transport equipment service center workers.

The primary job of the union is to negotiate collective bargaining agreements with the US Postal Service and other employers. These contracts establish wages, working conditions and other benefits for the workers represented by the APWU. The union also fights for the interests of postal workers in the political arena, monitoring legislation that affects working people-especially postal workers and standing up for our interest.

In addition, the APWU educates workers about workplace safety, provides technical assistance when hazards are discovered, and fights for safety on the job. The union evaluates the impact of technological change and works to ensure job security. The union also proetects workers' rights by representing them when they face problems on the job such as discipline, violations of seniority, harassment, discrimination, or ther management abuse.
