10/29/2015 - Last year, more than 36,000 postal workers were injured or sickened at work and at least 10 suffered fatalities.
“Here’s the simple truth,” APWU President Mark Dimondstein and Industrial Relations Director Tony D. McKinnon Sr. wrote in a letter to local and state presidents and national officers. “If we want a safe workplace, we have to work together to make it happen.”
