Constitution & By-Laws
of the

Southwest Coastal Area Local 917
American Postal Workers Union


We, the postal workers of America and the Southwest Coastal Area Local, in order to form a more perfect union, establish this Constitution.

   We believe the Southwest Coastal Area Local does not contemplate gain or profit to its members, and is organized for non-profit purposes.

   We, who come from the diverse crafts, believe that in unity there is strength.

   We believe that all postal workers and all members of labor have the right to economic, political and social justice. That all people have the inherent right to earn a living, and to be justly paid for the services they perform.

   That all postal workers have the right to expect to have decent shelter, food and clothing. That they have the right to see that their children have the best of education. The investment of the worker’s lifeblood in giving services gives them that right.

   We further believe that all people are created equal with the right to determine their own destiny, and to participate in the forces and events that affect them.

   We believe that all postal workers have the right regardless of race, color, creed, sex, or national origin to hold their heads high and to have respect for themselves as individuals.

   We believe, therefore, that in the spirit of the Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution, all people are free and have the right to come together to promote the common cause of all.

   We also believe that all members have certain basic rights within our union and shall be secure in those rights. In order to give life to the Preamble to the Constitution, and to the Constitution itself, the Members’ Bill of Rights has been established.
