Join Our Union!
Our union is a democratic organization comprised of dues-paying members who belong to more than 900 state and local unions and retiree chapters in every state and territory. APWU officers are directly elected by union members.
The union's state and local affiliates are autonomous organizations that rely on the national union to represent their interests in contract negotiations and in national-level grievances. The union negotiates a national Collective Bargaining Agreement and fights for our members' interests on Capitol Hill. The APWU also has many Retiree and Auxiliary chapters so that former postal workers and postal families can remain active in union affairs.
