"An Injury to one is an Injury to all"
On Thursday, March 13, President Obama directed the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) to revise overtime pay rules that currently allow
businesses to deny overtime for millions of workers. To assist the DOL in its effort, the AFL-CIO is seeking stories from workers that
demonstrate the importance of overtime pay for working families and highlight the need for reform of overtime rules.
While many postal employees have benefited from the hard-won right of overtime pay, millions of Americans have been denied overtime pay
and are being left unprotected because of the erosion of overtime pay rules under the Bush era. Currently, federal law exempts employers
from federal requirements to pay overtime to workers who make more than $455 — or $23,660 per year. That is ridiculously low!
It is barely above the federal poverty level for a family of four. If the purposed changes are adopted, employees in many industries
are expected to be impacted, including: retail, restaurant, hospitality, healthcare, information technology and financial services.
Share your story representing the importance overtime pay for workers and help the DOL expand this right!

"It has been long hard struggle; six years to be exact. I am
finally able to report to you that the ABA appears to be headed down a new path.
A path that brings it back to it's core mission, providing APWU members with
help in time of personal injury; and not a personal get rich, or retirement
system for those who administer the plan. In discussions with the new Executive
Director, Dave Daniels, it was agreed that the ABA may be in posture for a
benefit increase sometime in the near future. Of course this is all predicated
on the ABA financials over the next couple of years, but Dave seems committed to
Please read the financial statement provided by Dave, you can see how the ABA was a get rich personal retirement plan for past Postal Retirees who administered the ABA. It is unfortunate that the Retirement Plan Debacle also exists at the National APWU as well. This crap only happens because we APWU members let it happen. The APWU is no different that any other Political entity, it can only get away with what we the members (voters) let them get away with. Don't be scared speak out, and don't live by the Axiom that "The Devil you know is better than the Devil you don't". Use your brains when voting, remember what we have been told by these APWU elected officials when they are campaigning , but don't forget what you've seen them do either"..........

"All APWU members should read this letter from National APWU Treasurer Liz Powell. The automated phone system is nothing more than a way for our National Officers to put themselves further out of touch with the States, Locals and last but not least its Members. We should all write these out of touch Individuals and tell them we don't want their automated phone system. As it is now letters written go unanswered, what do think is going to happen when this automated phone system goes in, you will not get a response from National to the voice mail you leave. Why else would they want it?"
