Welcome to the Wichita Falls Area Local Homepage.
The local representative of the American Postal Workers Union (APWU Local
754). Proudly serving postal workers in Wichita Falls and surrounding
communities: Burkburnett, Electra, Holliday,
Iowa Park, Olney, and Seymour.
The American Postal Workers Union, AFL-CIO, represents 366,000 employees of
the U.S. Postal Service who are clerks, maintenance employees, motor vehicle
operators, and non-mail processing professional employees.
The American Postal Workers Union was founded on July 1, 1971, the result of
a merger of five postal unions: The United Federation of Postal Clerks,
The national Postal Union, the National Association of Post Office and General
Service Maintenance Employees, the National Federation of Motor Vehicle
Employees and the National Association of Special Delivery Messengers.
Following the transformation of the U.S. Postal Service under the Postal
Reorganization Act of 1970, postal unions won the right to bargain collectively
over wages, hours and working conditions.
The Wichita Falls Area local is a part of the National Union, led by our
Local Officers: President Sherry Brazil, Vice-President Eric Cook, and
Chief Steward David Mackey.
