Boycott the Postal Pulse Survey!  Enter the Drawing!


      It is survey time again! The USPS will be making the big push trying to get employees to submit their Postal Pulse surveys. The APWU does not support employee surveys and encourages all employees to boycott them. We also remind people that management gets credit for all returned surveys, even incomplete ones. So when your supervisor says, “Hey, if you don’t want to fill it out, that’s OK. Just give it back to me and I’ll take care of it” do not give it to them. Tear it up and throw it in the trash.


      Why is APWU against surveys? I can give you two reasons. Most of you should know by now what happened the last time we endorsed the surveys. Management used the survey responses against employees in contract arbitration in an attempt to lower wages and benefits.


      The second reason? The surveys are sold as a way to learn what problems exist so changes can be made to improve the workplace. Consider all of the years they have been doing these surveys…Have things improved? Have problems been corrected? The promise of better days coming from surveys results are empty promises. That much has already been shown to be true.


            When it comes to the Postal Pulse survey, I am reminded of a quote by former President George W. Bush:
“There's an old saying in Tennessee…I know it's in Texas, probably in Tennessee…that says, fool me once, shame…shame on…shame on you. Ya fooled me…can't get fooled again!”
