03/17/2016 - The APWU and USPS have signed an agreement that prohibits the transfer of Postal Support Employees (PSEs) between installations or districts in the Motor Vehicle Craft, MVS Director Michael Foster has announced.

“We discovered that the USPS was allowing PSEs to transfer in various parts of the country without negotiating with the union,” Foster explained. “This had the potential to cause many repercussions in the field, such as manipulating the salary structure of PSEs in an installation and impeding the transfer of career employees. We will continue to strive toward our goal of having all PSEs converted to career status instead of transferring from site to site,” he said.

The Memorandum of Understanding was signed on March 16.
