Working people across the United States have stepped up to help out our friends, neighbors and communities during these trying times. In our regular Service + Solidarity Spotlight series, we’ll showcase one of these stories every day. Here’s today’s story.
Last week, the American Postal Workers Union (APWU) added a range of new resources to help its members who are veterans of the armed services. The resources include APWU’s guide to veterans rights and benefits, as well as the Veterans Administration’s guidebook on mental health and suicide prevention. “The APWU encourages our members who are veterans of the armed services to avail themselves of their earned rights as well as to be fully involved in the union and the continuing struggle to improve the rights and well-being of postal workers and defend and expand the public Postal Service,” said APWU President Mark Dimondstein.
