Communication is Key

It has come to our attention that a large number of emails are being returned, inhibiting our ability to communicate with you, the members.  If you have not received an email message in the past two weeks, please do the following:

If you have used your USPS email, the system will reject the Union's email. Please use your private email. Rest assured we do not share your email with anyone, especially marketers.

If you have used a private email, make sure that our emails are not being placed in your spam folder. Mark the emails as not spam, or place in the white list.

Check the email in your profile, and make sure it is entered correctly.

Timely communication is integral to our mission, to keep you, the member informed. Please help us help you.

Face covering and mask update
The requirement for Postal Service employees to use face coverings or masks continues when social 
distancing of six (6) feet cannot be maintained in public, or in public-facing settings when 
required by state or local orders or directives.
Throughout the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak, the Postal Service has continued to fulfill its critical 
mission to bind the nation together. Postal Service employees are working hard across the country 
to ensure we are there for our customers every day, serving as a lifeline for millions of people.

As we are now in peak season, our mission is even more critical, and your safety and wellness are 
of the utmost importance. At the same time, we face unique challenges during peak season.

With an increase in staffing and an abundance of packages in our facilities, it is going to be 
increasingly difficult to maintain social distancing. So, we are urging you to have a face covering 
readily available when working and to wear a face covering whenever possible to ensure that you 
continue to protect yourself and your co-workers. If you do not have a face covering or if you 
require a new one, please request one from your supervisor.


The policy regarding face coverings has not been changed, rather it is being reinforced. The policy 
states that all employees are required to wear face coverings in the following situations, until 
the COVID-19 pandemic is no longer an issue.

•   In public-facing settings when there is a state or local face covering order or directive in 
place; or
 

COVID-19 SUT 59 – ALL EMPLOYEES: Face covering and mask update – 12.16.2020


•   When an employee who does not deal directly with the public cannot achieve or maintain social 
distancing in the workplace.

As indicated, you may request a face covering or surgical mask from your supervisor. You also may 
bring your own personal cloth face coverings to work for use while on duty. If you cannot wear a 
face covering for health reasons, you should immediately contact your supervisor.

You should not rely solely on the use of cloth face coverings to prevent the spread of COVID-19. 
You should also adhere to social distancing guidelines (6 feet) whenever possible while on delivery 
routes, at retail counters, and within the postal workplace: in plants, on docks and in lunch and 
break rooms.

In addition to social distancing, please follow these recommended prevention methods from the 
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention:

•   Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
•   Avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
•   Stay home when you are sick.
•   Cover coughs and sneezes with tissue, then throw tissue in trash.
•   Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.
•   Wash hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
•   Use a 60-percent or higher alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
•   Get a flu shot.

The Postal Service provides an essential service to our nation. Customers are expressing their 
gratitude to us in every community we serve.

Taking steps to stay healthy and well means we can continue to provide our critical services and to 
be a stable, calming presence across the country.

Thank you for everything you are doing for our customers, and for your professionalism every day.
