APWU and NALC cancel dinners to celebrate 50th anniversary of the Great Postal Strike

NALC – Dinner to celebrate 50th anniversary of the Great Postal Strike postponed


Due to the rapid developments around the outbreak of the coronavirus in New York and other locations, NALC has postponed the dinner to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Great Postal Strike scheduled for March 21 in New York City. While we regret any inconvenience this postponement may cause, the safety of those that will attend the dinner is of paramount importance.

NALC reserved a block of rooms at Wyndham New Yorker for those attending. This hotel has a 72-hour cancellation policy. Branches should promptly cancel reservations to avoid cancellation fees.

Major airlines are offering to waive change fees for some flights scheduled in March 2020. The details vary by airline. Please contact your airline for more information.

We are working to confirm a new date for the dinner. An announcement will come as soon as the date is confirmed and will include updated registration and hotel information.
