    New Career Employee Virtual Health Fairs 2021

    By WVPWU,

    As we get ready for another round of PSE conversions, the Health Plan is here to help. We want to educate the new career employees on the APWU Health Plan benefits. As you know, we have two great plans that offer strong benefits for the APWU members and their families.

    Please note, the new career employees will only have 60 calendar days to select their health plan. The new career employees that were on the USPS plan as a PSE will be automatically disenrolled. The PSE’s currently on the Consumer Driven Option can remain on this plan to keep those benefits. No further action will be needed. 

    In order to pay the negotiated APWU Career rate for the Consumer Driven Option the employee must be enrolled in the Federal Employee Health Benefits Plans for one full year as a career employee. The time spent on the Consumer Driven Option as a PSE doesn’t count toward the one year in FEHB.

    The APWU Health Plan will conduct Virtual Health Fairs, exclusively for this conversion. The Member Education department will brief employees on the benefit highlights for both the High Option and Consumer Driven Option plans. Most importantly, there will be a Q&A period to ask the Health Plan staff questions concerning benefits.

    Below is the schedule for the New Career Employee Virtual Health Fairs. Please circulate this information to the PSE’s that are being converted. Click the link to register and attend. 

    Once registered, you will get an email confirmation with a GoToWebinar link and dial-in information. On the day before the virtual health fair date you selected, we will email you a reminder and include the dial-in information with instructions.

    If you have questions, please contact our Director's office at (410) 242-1503 or by email at director@apwuhp.com.

    WVPWU 2021 2ND QUARTER UPDATE - Newsletter

    By WVPWU,

    Our union contract, plant closures & consolidation, delayed mail and our hope for bipartisan legislation to fix postal finances

    By WVPWU,

    Contract negotiations open in less than one month. Our next APWU Live with President Dimondstein is coming up on June 1 and we hope to see you there.

    Sign up here to get a reminder and to ask your question.

    There is a lot happening for postal workers right now and we have a packed livestream this month.

    This is your chance to get updates on postal workers’ campaign to restore speedy mail service and stop management’s attempt to permanently delay the mail. We will discuss management’s plans for plant closures and consolidations. And we’ll address the new bipartisan legislation that will finally get rid of the unfair prefunding mandate that has drained USPS finances.

    We will also let you know how you can get involved in our fight for a fair contract. Because our strength at the bargaining table comes from our members standing together and mobilizing, to get a Good Contract Now, we need you to make it happen.

    Together with answers for your questions, the June 1 live is a key opportunity for you find out what is going on and to get involved.

    Sign up for the July 1 APWU Live here.

    In union solidarity,

    The American Postal Workers Union
