In a wonderful act of solidarity, the Association of Flight Attendants-CWA – at the direction of their President Sara Nelson – produced a video to educate flight attendants and other workers about the importance of the public Postal Service.
The video features 2018 APWU Convention delegates speaking about the importance of the people’s Post Office and the need to stand in solidarity against postal privatization.
Please watch this video and share with your family, friends and coworkers!

Urgent Safety Alert
WEB NEWS ARTICLE #: 101-2018
10/24/2018 – Breaking news: It has just been reported that explosive devices have been sent through the mail addressed to a number of high-profile individuals and corporate entities.
APWU leaders condemn such criminal acts.
Our members are rightfully deeply concerned for their own well being and that of the public we serve.
In response to this urgent crisis, the Postal Service is in the process of scheduling nationwide “Stand Up” safety talks regarding procedures for recognizing suspicious packages and protocols to follow. We will share the safety talk as soon as we receive a copy.
We urge all our members to be alert and vigilant to protect your safety and well-being and that of your co-workers and the public.
The APWU leadership is in constant touch with top postal management as these disturbing events unfold. As more information comes to light we will keep you updated.
