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.

Our union represents 200,000 of the 630,000 postal workers of the United States.

We have deep concerns regarding the lack of a national plan in the roll-out of the COVID-19 vaccine 
and the detrimental impact on postal workers and postal customers.

Postal Workers, along with so many other dedicated essential workers, have been on the frontlines 
during this tragic pandemic, courageously carrying out our mission of connecting the people of the 
country. Vast numbers have been sickened and quarantined, many more exposed and we have tragically 
suffered over 150 deaths.

We look forward to a safe, effective and quickly delivered vaccine.

Taking into account the essential work of postal workers and interaction with the public, the CDC 
recommended that postal workers be considered in the “1-B” status of the rollout of the vaccine.

Yet numerous states have not followed this recommendation and have chosen to place postal workers 
further down in the order of those with early access to the vaccine.

We are optimistic that your new administration will work to bring order to the COVID chaos 
including bringing a national plan to the vaccine roll-out. We strongly urge that as part of this 
plan the CDC recommendations in relation to postal workers is consistently and fully implemented 
throughout the country.  The well-being of postal workers and postal customers depend on it.

We thank you in advance for the urgent attention to this matter and if there is any way the APWU 
can assist in this effort, please do not hesitate to contact me at (336) 210-2229 or at 
mdimondstein@apwu.org.


Sincerely,

Our union represents 200,000 of the 630,000 postal workers of the United States.
I write to you with deep concerns about reported changes to the COVID-19 vaccine rollout and 
timetable in your state in relation to postal workers.

Postal Workers, along with so many other dedicated essential workers, have been on the frontlines 
during this tragic pandemic, courageously carrying out our mission of connecting the people of the 
country. Vast numbers have been sickened and quarantined, many more exposed and we have tragically 
suffered over 150 deaths.

We look forward to a safe, effective and quickly delivered vaccine.

Taking into account the essential work of postal workers and interaction with the public, the CDC 
recommended that postal workers be considered in the “1-B” status of the rollout of the vaccine.

It has come to our attention that your state has apparently chosen to place postal workers further 
down in the order of those with early access to the vaccine.

We urge you to work to ensure that the vaccine be made available to postal workers at the earliest 
possible time. The well-being of postal workers and postal customers depend on it.

Thanking you in advance for urgent attention to this matter and if there is any way the APWU can 
assist in this effort, please do not hesitate to contact me at (202) 842-4250 or at

COVID-19 SUT 62 – ALL EMPLOYEES: Vaccine availability update – 01.20.2021


Mandatory Stand-Up Talk
Jan.  20, 2021

When will it be my turn to get vaccinated?
Like you, we are eager to learn when Postal Service employees will have access to COVID-19 
vaccines. The goal is for everyone to be able to get a COVID-19 vaccination as soon as possible.

Currently, the supply of COVID-19 vaccines in the United States is limited, but we are starting to 
hear that more vaccines should become available soon.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and others are providing recommendations to 
federal, state and local governments about who should be vaccinated first. The collective 
recommendation is that Postal Service employees be considered during the Phase 1B rollout of 
COVID-19 vaccines in state and local jurisdictions.

While the Postal Service continues to strive toward a standardized priority opportunity for our 
employees who choose to get the vaccine, we urge you not to delay your own access to a COVID-19 
vaccination.

States, and in many cases, local jurisdictions, have their own plans for deciding which groups of 
people will be vaccinated first. We strongly urge you to review the information on your state 
and/or local public health websites, sign up for alerts and schedule a COVID-19 vaccination at the 
first opportunity available to you.

We will continue to provide updates as more information regarding access to COVID-19 vaccinations 
for our employees becomes available. Thank you for listening.
