The Washington State Association of letter carriers was Organized February 22, 1901
State associations date back to the early 1890’s. In the early days, the state associations were formed because many local branches within each state felt that the young national association was not sensitive to their needs. As time went on, the state associations proved their worth by organizing the messages from the local subordinate branches to the national headquarters. Today, an added mission the state association carries is to contact and maintain relationships with their members of Congress respectively on behalf of the letter carriers of the state of Washington.
“No matter what you believe, neither congress nor anyone else, is going to enact or even introduce legislation for your benefit, if your concentrated action is not in evidence.” Unknown
