Yours in Solidarity,
St. Louis Gateway District Area Local #8
The American Postal Workers Union AFL-CIO was formed after the Great Postal Strike of 1970 and the subsequent establishment of the United States Postal Service.
In 1972 four separate unions merged together to form the St. Louis Local 8 of the APWU. We have since grown by merging with other locals and have become the St. Louis Gateway District Area Local.
We have been lead by nine presidents:
Zenison Kirksey 1972 - 1975
Michael Amman 1975 - 1979
Teddie Days 1979 - 1985
Melvin Sanders 1985 - 2001
Roosevelt Stewart 2001 - 2008
Anthony "Tony" Harris 2008-2010
Frederick "Fred" Wolfmeyer 2010 - 3/2019
Millard E. "Gene" Hollenbeck 3/2019 - 8/2019
Rebecca L. "Becky" Livingston 8/2019 - Present
Organization is the key to success. The more members that we have the louder our collective voices can be heard. There is no better time to join the Union than now. Be active in your future, join the Union today.
Postal workers who wish to join the APWU must complete Form 1187 (Authorization for Deduction of Dues) [PDF] and give it to your local shop Steward or Union President, who will see that you are enrolled automatically. You can also mail the form directly to the APWU Organization Department at 1300 L St., NW, Washington, DC 20005.
Contacting a Union Officer or Steward via this web site does NOT meet the requirements for filing a grievance under Article 15 of the National Agreement.
