April 15, 2016:
It is more important than ever that we stand with our strongest union employers against anti-union companies. With nearly 150,000 organized workers, AT&T is the only nationwide unionized wireless carrier.
There are currently more than 620,000 union members and staff participating in the Union Plus Wireless Discount program with AT&T. But that’s only 5 percent of union members, while AT&T has about a 30 percent share of the wireless market. That means millions of union members are using non-union carriers or using AT&T and not saving through the Union Plus Wireless Discount Program.
Our goal is to triple the number of members using AT&T Wireless to further support the union movement and its economic sustainability.
Through the program, union members can save 15% on the monthly service charge of qualified AT&T wireless plans. They may also qualify for other savings offers from AT&T and up to $250 cash back from Union Plus.
Please see the attached memorandum from President Trumka and President Shelton on AT&T Discount Program opportunities.

Every second Saturday in May, letter carriers in more than 10,000 cities and towns across America collect the goodness and compassion of their postal customers, who participate in the NALC Stamp Out Hunger National Food Drive — the largest one-day food drive in the nation.
Led by letter carriers represented by the National Association of Letter Carriers (AFL-CIO), with help from rural letter carriers, other postal employees and other volunteers, the drive has delivered more than one billion pounds of food the past 24 years.
Carriers collect non-perishable food donations left by mailboxes and in post offices and deliver them to local community food banks, pantries and shelters. Nearly 1,500 NALC branches in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, Guam and the Virgin Islands are involved.
The United States Postal Service, National Association of Letter Carriers, National Rural Letter Carriers’ Association, AFL-CIO, United Food and Commercial Workers International Union (UFCW), United Way, Valassis and Valpak Direct Marketing Systems are all supporting this year’s Stamp Out Hunger food drive.
To donate, just place a box or can of non-perishable food next to your mailbox before your letter carrier delivers mail on the second Saturday in May.
The carrier will do the rest. The food is sorted, and delivered to an area food bank or pantry, where it is available for needy families. With 49 million people facing hunger every day in America, including nearly 16 million children, this drive is one way you can help those in your own city or town who need help.
