APWU Workplace Enviornment Surveys:  Did You Complete Yours?

    Postal workers, like all workers, deserve a job where we can show up, safely do our work, and clock out knowing that we put in a good day’s work. But a vicious cycle of toxic work culture and short staffing is hurting postal workers and the communities we serve.  We are speaking up together to demand dignity and respect from postal management so that we can end the short-staffing crisis, stop toxic management practices, and keep delivering a strong public Postal Service.

     How can get involved? 

  • Wear a sticker!  Three stickers are available in the designs above.  Let management know how you feel!  (note:  clerks should not wear the stickers while working the window)

  • Take the Workplace Environment Survey!  This is not USPS's silly "Voice of the Employee" which should be boycotted.  This survey was prepared by, and for, the APWU to give members accross the country a chance to tell us the good, bad, and ugly, about their facility.  The more surveys submitted, the better picture we will get and we can identify problem offices and managers.  You can submit the survey anonymously, but we do need to know what office you work in.  You can complete the survey online!  Click here to take the survey online!

  • Record a Video!  Take a minute to record a video sharing how ending hostile workplaces in USPS facilities can help you deliver better services.  Click here to record a video!

Net-to-Bank (Direct Deposit) & Allotments Available on Liteblue / PostalEase 

    Charlie Cash,  APWU Director of Industrial Relations, reports that access to Net-to-Bank and allotments is once again available on liteblue.  Both features were locked as a result of the hacking scams going around in late 2022.  The USPS has re-opened these options for a short time in January 2023, but quickly closed them again as there were still concerns about security.  Employee should now have full access to make changes to their allotments or direct deposit.

eOPF access blocked - Employees Can Request Hard Copies

     The USPS has blocked access to employee personell folders (eOPF) on liteblue due to concerns about security.  The documents in an employees OPF contain sensitive information (i.e. social security numbers, former addresses, maiden names, date of birth, high school attended, etc...)  Some of this information is the kind used for security questions to reset passwords for online accounts.

     The Postal Service has employed an Artifical Intelligence (AI) program to scour the eOPF documents of all employees.  The AI program is redacting, and obscuring, sensitive information.  However, the AI program cannot identify hand-written information.  As a result, the USPS must review the eOPF for every employee and manually redact any information the AI program may have missed.  The USPS indicates it may take six months, or more, to complete this process.  Until that time, the eOPF feature will be unavailable.

      The USPS has indictaed that employee may request printed copies of their eOPF, at no charge, by contacting their district office:  From the USPS "Employees may request a copy of their eOPFs in person or in writing to their district Human Resource Office.    If the request is made in writing, they will be requested to provide proof of identity.  No charges will be assessed of active employees for requested copies of hard copies of their eOPFs while the eOPF system remains unavailable due to security upgrades."  The Postal Service has provided the following contact information for eOPF requests.
