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.
Sisters and Brothers, we in New Jersey have to get out and get involved in the Labor Walks to get the vote out. The New Jersey AFL-CIO tells me that while they have had great participation from all the Unions, the APWU has not been at any of the Labor Walks.
Attached is the listing of location from which walks are going to take place from each Saturday morning until election day. Please, Please join with me in the Labor Walks, find the one near you neighborhood and get out there and get the vote out. We will only have ourselves to blame if our candidates are not successful.
A number of you attended the meet and greet with 3rd Congressional candidate Andy Kim at my office last week. Let’s get him and other progressives elected.

American Postal Workers Union
National Postal Mail Handlers Union (NPMHU) President Paul Hogrogian addressed the vital importance of postal union solidarity and a united effort in facing the battles ahead.
He reminded the delegation that postal unions must put our differences aside and lead the fight to save the USPS and fight for union-friendly legislators.
Hogrogian continued to speak about how together the postal unions must all fight, “to enact meaningful postal legislation that is fair for all postal workers, fair for the Postal Service and fair for the American public.”
He said that working together, the postal unions can ensure, “that worker-friendly, union-friendly, postal-friendly candidates, regardless of political affiliation, are elected to Congress,” and can also, “elect a worker-friendly, union-friendly candidate to the White House.”
