    For Immediate Release

    Initial press statement after release of White House USPS task force report:

    If the White House Task Force on the Postal Service’s report was assigned a ZIP Code it would be 00000. This poorly conceived report makes many of its recommendations based on myth and misinformation that instead of improving mail services, would deliver higher prices and less service for the public.

    12/03/2018 - President Donald Trump proclaimed Dec. 5 as a national day of mourning upon the death of President George H. W. Bush. The Postal Service announced today

    “Out of respect for President Bush, the nation’s 41st commander in chief, and to honor his vast contributions to the United States during his lifetime, and consistent with the presidential proclamation, the Postal Service will observe the national day of mourning.”

    The Postal Service will suspend regular mail delivery and retail service on December 5.  However, some delivery, sortation and transportation operations will continue December 5 so the “the Postal Service network remains fluid” and to “prepare for the resumption of regular activities Thursday, Dec. 6.”   

    Career employees in APWU bargaining units will receive Administrative Leave in accordance with 519.4 of the Employee and Labor Relations Manual and the May 4, 2000 Memorandum Re Clarification of Regulations for National Day of Observance.

     


    APWU Statement in Support of Canadian Postal Workers

    Web News Article #: 113-2018

    For 37 days, members of the Canadian Union of Postal Workers (CUPW) engaged in militant rotating strikes in the struggle for a new union contract. Canadian postal workers were forced into strike action by the refusal of Canada Post to address the just and urgent demands of the workers, including addressing dangerous work conditions and high injury rates, unequal pay for rural workers, and massive hours of forced overtime. Yesterday, Nov. 27, the Canadian government, through legislative action, forced Canadian postal workers back to work and into binding mediation and arbitration.

    As the struggle continues, the CUPW is keeping all options open, including switching to a campaign of non-violent civil disobedience and other tactics to press their contract demands. “‘An Injury to One is an Injury to All.’ Their fight is our fight,” said President Mark Dimondstein. “The APWU salutes the unity and determination of our Canadian sisters and brothers and we have full confidence that the workers, led by the CUPW, will overcome these new obstacles and prevail in their just struggle. We stand in unbreakable union solidarity with Canada’s postal workers.”
