MEMBERS ALERT - MEMBERS ALERT
Dear Sisters & Brothers,
Posta l Management has officially notified the APWU of their intentions to excess at least 188 employees from 88 different post offices represented by our Local. To see the complete list of offices and the number of employees affected visit our Local Web-Site (see enclosed information). For the complete list, go to the Members Page (requires registration and log in).
Nationally the Postal Service has announced 1500 Excessing Events affecting over 15,000 employees.
Let there be no doubt that this notification is a "Slap In Our Face". The APWU and Mailhandlers Unions have sent a letter to Postmaster General Brennan, vehemently opposing this action (go to APWU.org to see letter).
These actions by the Postal Service are both threatening and intimidating. We must stand up against such policies. We are requesting that every Member remain alert and keep in touch with the Local. If management continues on this path local actions will be planned and we need all Members to show up when called upon. ALL MEMBERS!!!!
The Postal Service states that they care about its employees and calls us their biggest asset. Judging by these actions one must think that their loyalties are elsewhere.
The summer months are here. Members enjoy your hard earned vacations:
