Please follow the above link if you were skipped on your retroactive raise payment. We have had a couple members reach out because they received no payment. This payment would have been visible on the paycheck we received 9/4/2020. There would have been roughly 11 adjustments. If you were employed as an APWU represented craft employee during 2018, 2019 and/or through about March 2020, you should have received something. Please contact a steward with questions. This is because our contract expired in 2018 but wasnt settled until 2020. PSEs and Career employees were affected. Use the above form and FAX it to the union office for assistance. Thanks!

We have a limited supply of T-Shirts in Red (Sm,Med,Lg,XL,2XL,4XL), Black (Sm,Med,Lg,XL,2XL,3XL,4XL) and Navy Blue (Sm,Med,Lg,XL), as well as a limited supply of APWU 170 face masks. Members in good standing can request ONE, with the understanding that this is a first come/first served basis and we will likely run out. Please contact Panya at Secretary@APWULocal170.org with your Color and Size preference. We will do our very best to take care of everyone, but this is strictly a "while supplies last" type of thing. If you have already received a new t-shirt, please do not ask for a second. Keep it honest and fair so everyone has a chance.
