Sisters and Brothers,
Our National Convention kicked off on Monday, August 22, 2016. The first day was filled with introductions of all of the Local Presidents, the Contract Administration staff, the National Executive Board, etc... The following two days included guest speakers, Democrat and Republican, who supported the Unions efforts to keep the Postal Service alive and vital. On Tuesday, our National President, Paul Horogrian, was official elected to the position by affirmation. Our National Secretary-Treasurer, Mark Gardner followed suit. This was a great plus for our Union, as these are two leaders that we need in times such as these. The Union finances are strong, we are still working to get a contract, and we have the strongest contract representatives and legal team to get us where we need to be. Today we will be voting to choose Regional Vice Presidents. Our Regional Vice President is currently John Gibson from Philadelphia. He is not running unopposed. A newcomer is challenging John for the Office of Eastern Regional Vice President. I will keep you updated on the results. I will have more info as the Convention progresses.

William H. “Bip” McLemore III

We have had requests to put a retirement calculator on this website, and we have found a site that is self-explanatory, and gives you the option to calculate your retirement whether you are a CSRS or FERS employee. It also allows you to calculate your TSP retirement. Look to the left on this page to the sidebar, and click on the retirement picture to go to this site.
