APWU, Sister Postal Unions Win Right to Bargain Over Cyber Intrusions

06/02/2015 - In a precedent-setting agreement approved by the National Labor Relations Board, the APWU and its sister postal unions won the right to bargain with the Postal Service over a massive data security breach that took place in 2014.

The historic May 19 settlement marks a win for unions in a new area of labor-management contention: Management’s responsibilities to protect employees’ personal information in the digital age. The recent rash of data security breaches at government agencies and large private-sector companies makes the victory significant for workers far beyond those employed by the USPS.
