Wear Your Sticker on June 26
06/14/2018 - June 26 is a big day for hundreds of thousands of postal workers and our families. It’s the opening day of contract negotiations for our new collective bargaining agreement.
June 26 is a day to stand up, speak out and show pride in our union and solidarity with our bargaining team.
Let’s all wear our stickers, showing we are “Fighting Today for a Better Tomorrow.”
APWU is fighting for decent pay raises and to protect our COLA. We are focused on job security by defending our no lay-off protections, limiting subcontracting of our work, renewing the 50-mile limit on excessing and expanding postal services.
We want to bridge the gap between divisive and unfair multi-tiered pay scales and increase the number of career employees. We will strive to improve rights and benefits of both PSEs and PTFs.
Our union will also seek to address management’s lack of safety enforcement and an increasingly hostile work environment, often connected to a lack of proper staffing.
The USPS agenda is very different: the lowest pay increase they can get away with, eliminate the COLA, take away our no lay-off protections, and add more low-wage tiers to the workforce.
The battle lines are drawn in this set of negotiations. Wear your sticker and let your co-workers, and management know that you are standing up for good jobs, a good contract and quality service for postal customers.
