NO PULSE
Updated On: Jan 13, 2016

03/02/2015 - The APWU and USPS are facing off over management’s latest scheme: The Postal Pulse, a new employee opinion survey.

The APWU vehemently opposes Postal Pulse – and any other employee opinion survey – despite management notices that say otherwise,” said President Mark Dimondstein.  A Feb. 19 USPS announcement says the APWU, along with other unions and management associations, supports the goals of the program. A Feb. 26 News Break repeats the assertion.

The union filed an Unfair Labor Practice charge with the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) on Feb. 25, protesting management’s false claim.

The APWU has a long history of opposing employee opinion surveys because management uses workers’ responses against union members during contract negotiations.  The timing of management’s notice to employees, Feb. 19, was especially insidious, Dimondstein said, because it coincided with the opening day of contract talks.

Management first cited employee survey data during bargaining in 1998. The APWU National Executive Board adopted a resolution opposing “the use of surveys, focus groups, polls, audits, as a means of interviewing employees and union officials to evaluate job-related internal issues.” Similar resolutions have been adopted by the delegates to APWU National Conventions since then.

“Don’t let management take your pulse!” Dimondstein said. "Our voices are more powerful when we raise them together, through our union, than when we speak individually with management," he said.

Employees who feel they are being pressured to take the survey or who have questions should contact their local union representative.

Just take a look at Staples now- they are posting huge posters advertising how they perform YOUR job. You trust management?
