President Dimondstein Delivers Remarks 

on Opening Day of Contract Talks

Watch President Dimondstein's strong remarks to lead off opening day of contract talks.


Fired Up and Ready to Go! 

Contract Negotiations Begin Between the APWU and USPS

The American Postal Workers Union began negotiations for a new union 

contract with the U.S. Postal Service with an opening session on June 26th.



APWU Fired Up, Live and Livestreamed

Members of the American Postal Workers Union got fired up for the opening of collective bargaining 

with a raucous rally on the evening before negotiations began, promising intense member engagement across the country.


APWU Reaches Agreement on an Updated RI-399 Process

After decades of jurisdictional disputes, the American Postal Workers Union (APWU) reached agreement 

with the National Postal Mail Handlers Union (NPMHU) and the Postal Service on an updated RI-399

 procedure for jurisdictional work assignments to Clerks and Mail Handlers.


White House Plan to Privatize the Postal Service

The White House proposal on restructuring the federal government released today, 

Delivering Government Solutions in the 21st Century,” delivered nothing but misinformation and, if implemented, 

would end regular mail and package services at an affordable cost to 157 million addresses every day.



President Dimondstein: "Let's Deliver Mail, not Myths"

President Trump’s attention of late has been focused in part on the United States Postal Service and Amazon

resulting in a new executive order calling for an evaluation of USPS finances. This is a good 

opportunity to underscore some important facts regarding the Postal Service, a national treasure 

belonging to all the people of the United States.



APWU Meets With Federal Task Force Considering Changes to USPS

On Tuesday, June 6, APWU President Mark Dimondstein, joined by Legislative and Political Director 

Judy Beard, Manager of Negotiation Support and Special Projects Phil Tabbita, along with other APWU representatives, 

met with the White House Task Force on the Postal Service.
