Don’t Let the Postal Service Take Your Pulse!

It is that time of the year when the Postal Service wants to take your pulse!  

Like previous years, the 2018 Postal Pulse survey showed the USPS what we already knew: 

Your work environment is not good; your supervisors treat you poorly and morale is low.



Contract Update

The APWU is continuing to move forward towards interest arbitration. Preparation 

of hearing presentations, evidence, and witnesses is occurring every day.



Legislation Calls to Repeal Prefunding Mandate

On Monday, Apr. 29, members of Congress introduced H.R. 2382, the USPS Fairness Act

This legislation would repeal, in full, the onerous prefunding of retiree health care benefits mandate Congress put in place in 2006.



How to Participate in Workers Memorial Day

Each year on Workers Memorial Day (April 28), working people throughout 

the world remember those who were hurt or killed on the job, 

and recommit to the struggle for a safe workplace.



Postal Employees and Retirees See Threats to 

Pay and Benefits in White House Budget

The White House released its plans for the fiscal year 2020 budget this month. It once again 

attacks workers, calling for deep cuts to salaries, retirement and health benefits.



APWU Launches New Ad - "We Deliver Almost Anything"

The APWU continues our offensive against the White House proposals 

to sell the Postal Service to private corporations.


The lighthearted video below makes a crucial point – of all the many things the Postal Service 

will accept from the public, tax dollars are not one of them. The video advertisement release 

is in coordination with Tax Day actions all over the country on Monday, April 15.



Contract Negotiations Hotline Opened 

Call 866-412-8061 for Updates

The current Collective Bargaining Agreement between the American Postal Workers Union and 

the United States Postal Service expires at midnight September 20, 2018. The union entered the final 

10-day stretch of intense negotiations – including days of round-the-clock bargaining – on Sept. 10
