Contract Talks Hit Impasse
05/28/2015 - Contract negotiations between the American Postal Workers Union and the U.S. Postal Service ended without an agreement on May 27.
The USPS scuttled any prospect of reaching a deal by insisting on severe cuts in pay and benefits, despite the fact that progress had been made on many non-economic issues, President Mark Dimondstein reported. “Management’s economic demands and proposed changes to the workforce structure were completely unacceptable,” he said.
