On October 08, 2018, the APWU, NALC and NPMHU joined forced to hold informational rallies accross the country.  The goals was to educate the public on the Trump Administration's plans to privatize the US Postal Service.  While privatization advocates tout European models of for-profit corporations performing postal operations, they fail to mention that privatized postal complanies charge much more than USPS and, generally, provide poorer quality service.

The rally was organized by the Philadelphia Area Local President Nick Casselli and Legislative Director Cindy Heyward.  In attendance were several congressmen and one candidate for congress.  All pledged to fight to keep the US Postal Service as the People's Post Office!

The APWU was well represented by members of the Pennsylvania Postal Workers Union, Philadelphia Area Local, , Eastern Montgomery County Area Local, Phildelphia BMC Local, Lehigh Valley Area Local, Keystone Area Local, Lancaster Area Local, and South Jersey Area Local taking part in the rally.

The Workforce Fund Settlement called for changes to the amount of premiums that PSEs who join the USPS Health Benefit Plan are charged.  The USPS has announced a Special Enrollment Period for PSEs to join the USPS Health Benefits Plan.  The enrollment period will run from August 20, 2018 through October 04, 2018.  Coverage will be effective October 13, 2018.

The next opportunity to make changes will be the Health Plan Open Season in Nov / Dec 2018 which will go into effect in January 2019.  PSEs with more than one year of service who are in the APWU Consumer Driven Health Plan can choose to do nothing and will remain with APWU CDHP.

All PSEs will be receiving a letter in the mail explaining this special enrollment period and their options. Read more...

In accordance with the 2015-2018 National Agreement, career employees represented by the APWU will be receiving a cost-of-living increase effective September 01, 2018.  The COLA increase, which will appear in paychecks dated September 23, 2018,  amounts to $ 0.31 per hour for a total raise of $ 645.00 per year.

This is the seventh and final COLA provided by the 2015-2018 contract.  The COLAs received under the current contract add up to a total increase of $ 1,789 per year ( & 0.86 per hour)

PSEs do not receive COLA increases, instead receiving five general wage increases under the current contract.  The most recent PSE increase was $ 0.21 per hour on May 26, 2018.
