THE WAR IS OVER!




 
     Postal management informed the APWU in writing that the “Approved Shipper” program in Staples stores will be shut down by the end of February 2017. This victory concludes the APWU’s three-year struggle.
     The boycott against Staples is over!  “I salute and commend every member and supporter who made this victory possible,” said APWU President Mark Dimondstein. “I never doubted that if we stayed the course, stuck together and kept the activist pressure on, we would win this fight.”

WE HAVE A CONTRACT!




 
Arbitrator Goldberg has released his award for the 2015 - 2018 APWU/USPS contract.  The 40 month contract provides modest pay increases and protects COLA, the no lay off provisions as well as eliminating PSEs in Maintenance and Motor Vehicle crafts.

PSEs in those crafts will be converted to career status.  Clerk Craft PSEs , in 200 man-year offices, with 2.5 years (or more) of service on July 8th will also be converted to career.  The contract also requires the parties to discuss the possibility of another round of PSE conversions in the future.

This contract also sees the elimination of NTFT positions in all crafts, except function 4 (retail) where they will be limited to 8% nationwide.  The Local parties can agree to keep 4day/10hr NTFT jobs, but all Function 1 (mail processing) and MVS will be converted to traditional FTR.

PSEs also saw some gains in their benefits including period pay raises, holiday pay, and streamlining of the conversion to career process.
