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.

PPWU ENDORSES CANDIDATES FOR APWU NATIONAL ELECTION

08/08/19

Brothers & Sisters

It has come around to that time again... elections of APWU National Officers.  Last election we, as the PPWU Executive Board, decided it was important that you were aware of who we supported, since we are a group elected by the entire state of Pennsylvania.  Our process, for selecting endorsements, was guided by an  important rule we have been working under.

An endorsement, for an office, will only be made if a candidate has the

unanimous approval of the PPWU Executive Board.

Some candidates may have received majority support, but in an effort to promote solidarity, one member of the executive board can block a candidate endorsement.  This year (something I cannot remember ever happening before) we have two candidates from different locals competing for the same position.  Both candidates are from locals that are in good standing with the PPWU and both are on teams.  Therefore, I thought it would be nearly impossible to get any unanimous endorsements. However, we did achieve unanimous agreement on quite a few which should indicate to you how good a job those individuals are doing.

This is our final list and we hope you will give each candidate the consideration they deserve when casting your ballot.

Most important, please, vote. 

It will determine your future as a worker, and particularly, as a postal worker.

Yours in Solidarity

Mike Stephenson, President

Pennsylvania Postal Workers Union
