Greetings APWU Members! I am proud to be leading the “APWU Members First” Team and respectfully seek your support for President.
Are you satisfied with the direction of our union? Are you more secure? Are you confident with the current incumbent officers negotiating another union contract? Have incumbents lost touch with you, the member?
I fervently believe that the union belongs to the members and good union jobs depend on a vibrant public Postal Service. Career and non-career workers and retirees deserve respect and a secure future. With my thirty years of union experience, including extensive contract negotiations, I stand ready to chart a needed new direction.
Are you ready to help us make positive change?
We have no magic wand but will work with determination to defend full-time career jobs, eliminate divisive two-tier wage scales, enhance conversion opportunities for PTFs to full-time and PSEs to career and champion expanded postal services.
As postal services are degraded through processing plant and post office closings, local unions have had to fend for themselves. I will establish a coordinated national program to fight to keep plants open, reopen closed ones, restore service standards and end the nonstop excessing of employees.
The best defense of our jobs rests with united action of unionized postal workers and postal customers. The incumbents’ sole reliance on writing Congress to solve our problems is not a winning strategy to save our service and jobs. I will reach out to the people of this country, the “99%”, to involve our many allies and their organizations (senior, veteran, business, civil rights, union, etc.) to save our national treasure, the U.S. Postal Service. These alliances will also be mobilized to tackle the USPS’s plan to subcontract all Motor Vehicle jobs and to protect the hard earned benefits of our Retirees. This will include aggressively fighting proposed “chained” CPI which, if passed, will significantly reduce the formula of future Cost of Living Allowances for retirees.
I, and the “APWU Members First” team will always be honest with you and work tirelessly to set things right!
