Mail Handlers to Convene in Chicago

Planning is well underway for the 2016 National Convention, which is scheduled to take place at the Fairmont Millennium Park Hotel in Chicago, Illinois during the week of August 22, 2016. Twohundred eighty-seven mail handlers from across the country have been chosen through the Local Union delegate election process to serve as delegates. This body will help to set the agenda of
the Union for the next four years.

The theme for our 2016 National Convention is “NPMHU — The Power of You.” This theme reflects on the value and power of each and every individual mail handler, united in our economic, political, and workplace struggles. As a member of the NPMHU, you are a component of our future and a key to the success of the organization. The NPMHU relies on the power of you.

For the 2016 quadrennial event, the NPMHU is featuring a dedicated website that will provide news and information relative to the upcoming National Convention. The site launched in early May and can be viewed at convention.npmhu.org/. Please monitor the website and read the Union publications, to stay  up to date on all Convention business.

Beginning in May, and throughout the summer, committees appointed by National President Paul Hogrogian will meet to review and establish a full agenda for the 2016 Convention, including possible constitutional amendments and resolutions that may be submitted for consideration by the delegates in accordance with the requirements set forth in the NPMHU National Constitution.

In addition to the traditional Constitution and Resolution Committees—and in recognition of the increasing role that the NPMHU has played in ongoing legislative issues on Capitol Hill— President Hogrogian has named a Legislative Committee to review and recommend the adoption of resolutions concerning legislative and political matters.
