APWU Executive Board Opposes War With Iraq
At its Jan. 14 meeting, the National Executive Board of the American Postal Workers Union voted to oppose war with Iraq. The resolution states:
The APWU National Executive Board opposes the pending war with Iraq.
This declaration is based on the information made available to the American public at this time. We abhor terrorism, and we endorse all action -- diplomatic and military -- to appropriately respond to acts of aggression.
However, pre-emptive attacks against sovereign states are not consistent with the principles of freedom and respect for all people.
