HELP SAVE THE USPS!

04/15/20
The USPS was facing unreasonable financial burders because of the 2006 Future Retiree Health Benefit Prefunding requirement.  Now faced with the COVID pandemic, the reduced mail volume, and increased work hours and expenses, the USPS is dealing with uncertainties that have never been faced before.

     Some in the government are looking to capitalize on these conditions and are using the current problems to attempt to dismantle, destroy, privatize, and sell off the Postal Service to greedy profiteers.  While some in Congress have made attempt to help the USPS through these difficult times others, including the White House, have been very vocal in their opposition to any assistance for the USPS.  Some going as far as to threaten veto of stimulus bills that include USPS financial relief.

     While postal workers are putting their lives on the line to deliver needed medications and supplies to American citizens, there are those who see this as an opportunity to make money.  Don't let that happen.  Click the Link below to send a letter to your elected officials and ask them to support the USPS and protect this essential public institution.







Stop the Postal Sell-off:
Say NO to a privatizer as the Postmaster General

The public service mission of the Postal Service has made it the most popular federal agency. However, this public good is at risk if we donít all act soon. In June 2018 the White House announced proposals to privatize the Postal Service. Now Postmaster General Megan Brennan has announced her departure as Postmaster General in January 2020.  

 

The Postmaster General has wide powers to shape the mission of USPS and there is a real risk that Brennanís successor could hand over parts of the service to private, profit-making corporations and prepare it for a wholesale sell-off.  The people will rightly expect a new Postmaster General who will uphold the Postal Serviceís public mission and will work to preserve and enhance our national treasure.

Add your voice. Protect our public Postal Service.

MS-1 / TL6 SETTLEMENT REACHED

08/1419

Maintenance Craft Director Idowu Balogun announced that the APWU and USPS have reached an agreement on the implementation of the new MS-1 / TL6 Handbook.  This dispute began in 2016 when the USPS modified the MS-1 / TL4 Handbook.  The Union disputed the changes and the parties have been negotiating ever since.  (note:  During the time the parties were negotiating the TL4 changes, the USPS released the TL5 version of the MS-1!)

The new MS-1 / TL6 will see the transferring of maintenance work in stations and braches from plant maintenace to Field Maintenance Operations (FMO).  The parties have agreed that staffing impacts will be achieved through attrition.  More details will be released next week during a APWU webinar for local union representatives.
