Reversions, Abolishments, and Excessing
“This is an attack on postal workers’ jobs and we have a big fight on our hands. We need all of you in that fight. You need to report every violation to your steward. Management will be forced to perform more clerk work if this excessing occurs and it is up to you to report those violations.” – Bob Gunter, Illinois Postal Worker Union President, The Illinois Postal Worker
