APWU Geared Up to Fight Back Against USPS Reductions in Service and Jobs


The APWU Reports:

“Throughout the country, the Postal Service has launched an all-out assault on our jobs and is blatantly violating the Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA) in their staffing of post offices. The USPS is reducing service to the community and disrupting the lives of postal workers by reducing duty assignments (reversions and abolishments) and issuing excessing notices potentially affecting hundreds of post offices and thousands of employees…

“We are gearing up for a large fight,” said President Dimondstein. “I know that if we stick together and stay united, then – just like the Stop Staples and contract campaigns – we will be victorious.”

USPS Actions are an Attack on Service

The Postal Service is reducing duty assignments and issuing excessing notices despite the fact that Postal Service is already understaffed as evidenced by the following issues taking place in many offices around the country:

– Long lines for postal customers at the window
– Delayed mail
– Thousands of Postal Support Employees averaging over 30 hours a week
– High amounts of overtime
– One worker instead of the agreed upon two or three workers staffing DBCS machines”
