      It is with great sadness that we report the passing of APWU National President "Emeritus" William Burrus.  President Burrus passed away, at his home on Saturday, May 18, 2018 after a remarkable life spanning 81 years.
      President Burrus served in the US Army before joining the USPS in 1958.  He fought hard for union members in his home local of Cleveland, OH.  In 1980, Bill was elected to the position of National Executive-Vice President, a position he held for 21 years.  In 2001, Bill was elected to the presidency of the APWU and served the members well until his retirement in 2010.  He tirelessly fought for the members of the APWU, never settling for less.
     Bill Burrus was the first African-American ever to be elected, by the membership, as President of a national union.  President Burrus was recognized on several occasions as being among Ebony magazine's 100 Most Influential Black Americans.
      President Burrus was a great friend to Pennsylvania, the PPWU, and locals throughout the state.  Our thoughts and prayers are with his wife Ethelda and his entire family. 

2018 OFFICER ELECTIONS

      Election of officers for the 2018 - 2020 Term was conducted at the recent PPWU Convention.  All officers were unopposed and elected by acclamation.  Congratulations to PPWU President Mike Stephenson and the rest of the newly elected PPWU Officers.

APWU SCORES BIG WIN ON "END OF DAY" BUTTON

Arbitrator Shyam Das found in favor of the APWU again in the union’s on-going efforts to enforce the Global Settlement Memorandum of Understanding (GSMOU) and the Global Settlement Remedy Agreement (GSRA) for implementing the GSMOU.

In an award issued December 8, 2017, Das found that the “End of Day” button – a function the Postal Service added into the Retail System Software (RSS) point-of-sale system allowing postmasters to enter and exit the system without fully closing out – did not satisfy the requirement in the Global Settlement Remedy Agreement that postmasters are allowed to perform bargaining unit work for only 15 hours per week, to be counted from the start to the “end of day.”   full story
