APWU Legislative Update
Updated On: Apr 11, 2017

February 2, 2017

The 115th Congress has convened and lawmakers have wasted no time taking action on items of interest to postal workers. Legislative issues and action e-Team updates will address both challenges that arise and opportunities to advance our APWU agenda in the new Congress and new administration.

Postal Reform
On January 31, Representatives on the House Oversight and Government Reform Committeeintroduced The Postal Service Reform Act of 2017, H.R. 756. This bill is currently under review by President Dimondstein and the Legislative and Political Department. Updates will be posted on the APWU website.

Hiring Freeze
The U.S. Offices of Personnel Management (OPM) and Management & Budget (OMB) released a memorandum on Tuesday, January 31 which made clear the hiring freeze does not include the U.S. Postal Service.   

H.Res.31
Rep. David McKinley (R-WV) has re-introduced a resolution to restore mail service standards in effect as of July 1, 2012. This resolution, House Resolution 31 (H.Res.31) calls on the Postal Service to reverse its January 2015 decision to cut service standards and eliminate overnight mail nationwide. Previously, this measure was known as House Resolution 54 (H.Res.54).
Undoing the counterproductive mail delays that have angered and driven away postal customers is a high priority once again for the APWU. Your help is needed to build momentum and support for the measure. While such resolutions are non-binding, they serve as an important vehicle for lawmakers to express public support for an issue.
