NEW WITH APWU
APWU IS GOING LIVE!
Greetings Local, State and National Officers,
I am excited to announce that beginning Friday, October 4th at noon, we will be able to accept membership applications (1187s) online from current APWU Bargaining Unit employees!
Starting tomorrow (Friday), the "Join APWU" option on the home page of our website will allow a non-member to complete the entire process from their phone or computer.
Once the 1187 is submitted, a confirmation email containing the completed 1187 will be emailed to both the new member, as well as, the Organization Department. In addition, the Department will be mailing Local and State Organizations a copy of the 1187.
Form 1187s received through the online procedure will automatically be entered into our system, thereby expediting their processing time.
Feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions, and as always, I value your feedback.

2019 POSTAL WORKER WEST
Here is the newest info & news from POSTAL WORKER WEST issued by Omar Gonzalez, Wester Regional Coordinator
IN MERMORIUM OF PRESIDENT MIKE EVANS
Truly A Good Man All The Way Around. Devoted Family Man. A Dedicated Unionist. He Gave All Of His Postal Career To The Service Of His Fellow Co-Workers. He Served As Pasadena Local President For Many Years.
And In Retirement, He Arose To The Occasion To Continue To Serve The Membership Of This Great Union As State President Of California And A Member Of SWCAL.
This Man, A Gentle Man, Was No Push Over When It Came To Standing Up For Working People And For Justice. He Had An Easy Going Style One Could Call Casual. But There Was No Mistake, That When It Came To Taking Care Of Business He Walked The Talk.
He Had A Genuine Smile And A Heartfelt Care For All That Crossed His Path. That Didn't Mean He Was Not A Passionate Man. His Ire Could Rise If He Felt A Wrong Had Been Committed And He Would Let It Be Known.
Everyone Who Knew Him Or Just Had a Chance To Meet Him Once, Has Had A Taste Of His Unique Humor And Profound Sense Of Brotherhood. He Will Be Forever Missed And Ever In Our Hearts. He Is Our Beloved Leader, Brother, Partner, Confidant, And Friend.
