This Postal Heritage Day, two APWU locals celebrated the USPS’ 242nd birthday by holding informational pickets informing the public about the proposed job cuts by USPS management through reversions, abolishments and excessing – further disrupting services to the public.
06/22/2017 - On June 21, the APWU and National Postal Mail Handlers Union (NPMHU) sent a joint letter to Postmaster General Megan Brennan chastising her administration’s “wholesale and massive job cuts.” APWU President Mark Dimondstein and NPMHU President Paul Hogrogian explained, “The cutting of an already skeletal workforce will not only cause massive disruption to the workforce but will cause further degradation of postal services for the American people throughout the country.”
10/26/2016 - The American Postal Workers Union (APWU) announced today that Emily Harris, an experienced writer and award-winning multi-media producer, will serve as the union’s new communications director.
04/10/2015 - The APWU and USPS reached two pre-arbitration settlements on April 9, resolving disputes over the use of acting supervisors (204bs) in Bulk Mail Entry Units and in Office-in-Charge assignments, Clerk Craft Director Clint Burelson has announced.
02/11/2015 - The union is pursuing our demand that management create at least 60 new administrative and technical duty assignments in the Motor Vehicle Service Craft, as required by the 2010-2015 Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA). Four years after signing the CBA, the USPS still has not created the positions.
01/12/2015 - An addendum to the Sept. 22, 2013, POStPLAN Memorandum of Understanding will place a number of career jobs into Level 4 post offices, which otherwise would have been staffed exclusively with Postal Support Employees (PSEs). The offices in question are open four hours per day.
10/30/2014 - The APWU and USPS have agreed to a set of Questions and Answers regarding the establishment of 9,000 new Clerk Craft jobs that will be created as a result of a Sept. 5 arbitration award on the POStPlan and a Sept. 22 union-management agreement on implement of the ruling.
10/27/2014 - The APWU and Postal Service have reached an agreement that prohibits management from subcontracting cleaning services based on an employee’s voluntarily transfer from an office where USPS custodians are employed. The Oct. 27 agreement settles a Step 4 dispute.
