We, the WVPWU Executive Board, are pleased to announce the final details for the 2022 WV Convention and Spring Seminar. This year, we’re excited to announce a special one-day beginners steward training. It’s our goal to help Local’s with the challenges we all face. We often forget that we’re not born with the knowledge and skills needed to be a successful steward in today’s post office. The WVPWU is offering this to any member of your local with no charge for supplies. An attendee does not have to be a delegate to attend.

The State Convention will be held at the Charleston Marriott Town Center. The room rate is $109.00 per night. A block of rooms are reserved under American Postal Workers Union. APRIL 6TH IS THE FINAL DAY TO REGISTER FOR A ROOM AT THIS RATE!!! This year, to offset the cost of inflation, the Registration fee is set at $75.00 per delegate.
Hospitality will be provided Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday evenings. Breakfast will be setup outside the conference room Thursday – Saturday. If you’re hungry for more breakfast, they do provide a buffet for 14.99. Thanks to the efforts of the Charleston Area Local, parking at the hotel with 24-hour security has been negotiated at $7/day.
All delegate registration forms must be received no later than March 29th at either reneesteele@wvpwu or to WVPWU PO Box 9054 Huntington, WV 25704. For the sake of the host local, we encourage you to have these returned ASAP. They’re planning on providing T-Shirts which require early ordering.
We’re very excited to be meeting in person again after the last two years. We encourage everyone to practice social distancing, adhere to local guidelines for facemasks, and if possible, test negative prior to attendance. If you have any questions or concerns, please direct them to the WVPWU President.
