Dispute Filed Over Postal Service Data Security Breaches/Missing Laptops

The APWU has filed a national-level dispute over the Postal Service's data security breaches involving missing or stolen laptop computers containing personal and confidential information of APWU bargaining unit employees. It is the union's position that the Postal Service has failed to take the necessary corrective action to eliminate these data security breaches by ensuring that sensitive employee information is not stored on portable computing devices. It is also the APWU's position that when a data breach occurs, the Postal Service should provide impacted employees with identity theft insurance.
