To quote the famous New York Yankee legend Yogi Berra, “It’s déjà vu all over again.” As we prepare for the opening of the 2018 Collective Bargaining Agreement negotiations, we can be certain that the USPS will once again expect the union, or an interest arbitrator, to concede the many years of benefits we have obtained for APWU members. This USPS textbook move has been used over and over again in their attempt to put the union on defense and not offense. Being mindful of this strategy, the APWU’s leadership remains focused on protecting and improving the rights of our members.
