I am honored that my fellow retirees have entrusted me to lead the retirees union at this point in time. My number one priority will be to protect our civil rights, our environment and the opportunities to do the right thing for the retirees A. P.W. U. Publication Motto for this Contract Campaign is ” Good Service” ! Good Jobs! Good Contracts! Now because we are a Self Sufficient body of the Government we receive NO Tax Dollars for its operations. Therefore if we receive NO TAX DOLLARS we must generate our own revenue, give good customer service and continue to promote our business in order to keep our future as Postal Workers. We need to get involved participate for the benefit of others. I am a long time Advocate in the community, one on one keeping it – real.
Retirees who are Non-Members should become a member of the APWU Retirees Union to fight for every aspect of their livelihood. We are under constant attack which is why we need to strengthen and protect our union. Additionally we need to be aware of our surroundings, and know our rights and responsibilities. We need everyone to help in the battle for our future USPS Brothers and Sisters. You have knowledgeable union advocates to rely on who pick up lots of useful information to share with other APWU retirees. We have to fight for what’s right the rule of thumb is still agree to disagree. Hopefully we can become unified and show our solidarity. The more we are united as one with our union Brothers and Sisters; the stronger we will be.
This is why although I retire after 35 years as postal worker, I have 46 years as a union member, and also a shop steward. I am currently a Public Insurance Adjuster for C.M .Butler A.C.A. Inc., and I am delighted to be the A.P.W.U. retirees president.
