APWU Members and Allies Continue Push to Save the Post Office

November 19, 2020  San Francisco Protestors

On November 17, APWU members and community allies came together in virtual and in-person events across the country to reaffirm our demands for $25 billion in immediate COVID-19 financial relief from Congress and a permanent reversal of Postmaster General Louis DeJoy’s delays. 

During the election, postal workers processed a record number of mail-in ballots, moving “heaven and earth” to make sure all 65 million reached their location in time to be processed. This success would not have been possible without the work of APWU members on local election task forces, who made sure no ballot was left behind. 

However, though the election is behind us, the threats facing the Postal Service remain very much a reality. The USPS remains in a financial crisis and faces the upcoming reinstatement of Postmaster General Louis DeJoy’s harmful policy changes.

“This year has underscored how valuable the Postal Service is to the people of our country…As proud, dedicated public servants and frontline heroes, postal workers have carried out the postal mission of connecting us all during a tragic and deadly pandemic,” said President Dimondstein said during the APWU National’s press conference. 

“Despite our success on election mail, and the role of the postal service in the pandemic, the Postal Service remains under threat,” President Dimondstein continued. “Simply put, we defended democracy, and now, we the people, must defend the public Postal Service.”

At over 30 events across the country, with hundreds participating, we showed our commitment to #SavethePostOffice will not be thwarted. Additionally, over 5,000 calls were made to Congress to demand $25 billion for the Postal Service and a permanent reversal of DeJoy’s cuts to service. Many of the events held press conferences for local outlets. 

The press events organized across the country were anchored by a national press call with reporters from more than 20 national outlets. That call featured President Dimondstein, Atlanta Metro Area Local Assistant Clerk Craft Director Chantriss Flanagan, and Hilary Shelton, Director of the Washington (D.C.) Bureau of the NAACP. 

During the press conference, Flanagan spoke about her work on her local’s election task force committee and answered questions about what she experienced now with mail delays and concerns about the rising COVID-19 numbers. 

“A lot of employees are willing and ready to let the Post Office shine and show that we are essential employees,” Flanagan said. “I’ve enjoyed working on the task force because it does get more employees involved; and they are out here trying to find that political mail and make it move, because that’s what we do – make the mail move and get it where it’s supposed to go.”

In his remarks, Shelton spoke on the importance of the public Postal Service in the last election.

 “This was the largest participation of any election in the history of the United States, and certainly the largest number of mail-in ballots were managed by the United States Postal Service throughout this process, to make sure that even in a coronavirus pandemic, Americans were able to have their voices heard and their votes counted,” Shelton said. “It was extraordinary to see the American Postal Workers Union step up as it did, to make sure that all of these ballots were cast.” 

The Day of Action was successful in attracting local and national media coverage in cities including Honolulu, HI; Boston, MA; Davenport, IA; Bakersfield, CA; Portland, OR; Seattle, WA; Columbus, MS; Portland, ME; Washington, DC; Burlington, VT; Detroit, MI;

Ben Franklin and US Mail Not For Sale Support
Grand Rapids, MI; Reno, NV; and Phoenix, AZ. 

Many labor and community allies – including the AFL-CIO, AFSCME, AFT, NNU, Our Revolution, Common Cause, Public Citizen, LCLAA, Take on Wall Street and League of Women Voters – posted their support for people’s Post Office, encouraging their members/followers to also make calls. In addition, the events gained wide support from public figures, including U.S. Women’s Soccer star Megan Rapinoe, who shared the Day of Action with her 910,000 followers.

APWU members who attended a Day of Action event are encouraged to send photos to communications@apwu.org. More information on future events to Save the Post Office will be shared in future News Service Bulletins and on apwu.org.

Statement from APWU President Mark Dimondstein on the election of Joe Biden as U.S. President and Kamala Harris as U.S. Vice President

November 7, 2020 

To Our APWU Family:

In a close election, former Vice President Joe Biden has prevailed in his campaign for U.S. President. He is now President-elect and Kamala Harris, is Vice President-elect. The APWU heartily congratulates both on their electoral victory.

The APWU elected leadership applauds this outcome, as does an overwhelming majority of our members. Joe Biden was endorsed by the APWU National Executive Board based on a clear and stark choice. We will soon have someone in the White House who supports the public Postal Service, not one planning to dismantle and privatize it. We will have a leader who champions union rights, not one proposing to eliminate our collective bargaining rights. We will have in the White House a President who respects the dedication and integrity of postal workers, not one who labels us as corrupt and a joke. We will have in the White House someone who will follow science in relation to COVID, not denigrate public health officials. We will have a President who respects people, not one who divides us by fanning the flames of racial and religious bigotry.

I fully respect that our members hold many varying political beliefs and applaud all for being involved in the political process. Members worked for various candidates, participated in the APWU “Labor 2020” program, registered people to vote, talked to co-workers, family and friends, put up yard signs, made phone calls, worked the polls – and voted!

Every APWU member from all crafts should be extremely proud of our role in securing the public’s most precious democratic right – the right to vote.

The people were counting on us and postal workers shined. An unprecedented more than 65 million people cast their ballots by mail, a tried and tested system. Ever more popular with voters, tens of millions more chose in a COVID world to vote by mail as the safest way to access the ballot box and exercise our cherished right to vote.

Earlier this year, when management policies delayed the mail, we rallied with a supportive public and helped compel management to commit to robust procedures for handling election mail.

With extra hours, attention, effort and priority, postal workers moved “heaven and earth” to make sure ballots were processed, arrived on time and were counted. Every APWU local stepped up to ensure the timely delivery and processing of ballots with hundreds of our locals involved in local labor/management task forces to ensure the job was done well and any problems were addressed.

Since election day we have stood with the vast majority of people in this country who expect and insist that every vote, including all mail ballots, will be counted and the results respected.

The APWU stands fully united with the entire labor movement and fair-minded people throughout the land against any attempts to subvert the will of the people, any march toward dictatorship and tyranny, with fabricated claims of a rigged election based on vote- by-mail.

As we look ahead, we recognize that great challenges will continue to face us, no matter who sits in the White House. The Biden presidency creates a better and more supportive political environment. The rest is up to us, for movements move presidents and Congress, not the other way around.

Louis DeJoy is still the Postmaster General and he promises to follow through on policies that slow down mail and drive away revenue now that the election is through. The Postal Board of Governors who are enabling these destructive policies remain in place for the foreseeable future. The struggle continues for needed COVID emergency financial relief from Congress. We must remain vigilant in the constant effort for maximum health and safety in this COVID world. Wall Street postal privatizers come in all political stripes. Efforts to expand and enhance Postal Services must accelerate. Postal reform legislation is needed. Bargaining for a new Union Contract begins this coming year.

Election day is behind us. Let us be reminded that we have far more in common than differences.

We are union! We will stand shoulder to shoulder with each other, the other postal unions, the labor movement, our community allies and the people of the country who, on a non-partisan basis, support and trust the public Postal Service as we continue to move forward in the struggle to protect our jobs, our union, uplift all workers and the 99% and ensure a vibrant public Postal Service for generations to come.

Postal Workers’ Proud Role in Our Democracy

Message from APWU National President Mark Dimondstein

November 3, 2020 

To All APWU Members:

As we enter the final stage of the 2020 election, every postal worker should be proud of our role in securing the public’s most precious democratic right – the right to vote. This year, an unprecedented number of voters chose to “vote-by-mail.” Whatever craft we work in, we were an important part of the process, a process that will continue to receive priority treatment over the next few days.

Despite the fact that the integrity of postal workers was constantly attacked by the highest office of the land, the honesty and dedication of postal workers to the people of this country was once again in full display.

The people were counting on us and we did not fail. Almost one-half of all voters have voted by mail, a tried and tested system. Ever more popular with voters, tens of millions more in a COVID world chose vote-by-mail as the safest way to access the ballot box and exercise our cherished right to vote.

Earlier this year, when management policies delayed the mail, we rallied with a supportive public and helped force management to commit to robust procedures for handling election mail.

With extra hours, extra attention, extra effort and extra priority postal workers moved “heaven and earth” to make sure ballots are processed, arrive on time and will be counted. Every local stepped up to ensure the timely delivery and processing of ballots with hundreds of our locals involved in local task forces to ensure the job was done well and any problems were addressed.

Over the next few days, we stand with all fair-minded people throughout our country who expect and insist that all ballots, including all mail ballots, will be counted and the results respected.

You are heroes for serving on the front lines of this pandemic and making sure the democratic process is carried out. You are why 90% of the people trust, and have a favorable view of, the public Postal Service.

On behalf of the national leadership of the APWU, we commend every postal worker for this tremendous effort!

Mark Dimondstein
APWU National President

Brothers and Sisters,

In this historic Election, your work has been critical in helping America vote.  We expect significant interest from the media about how the Postal Service handled election mail.  We are deeply interested, as we know you are, that the information reported by the press is accurate and timely, and that it does not discourage voters whose ballots may be counted for days and weeks after Election Day.  And as we saw earlier, your comments to the press may make you a witness or possibly a target in litigation. 

Please, if you get any press inquiries (local or national) between now and Friday November 6th, direct them to the National APWU’s Communication Department at news@apwu.org or to the APWU’s Communications Director Emily Harris at (202) 322-8511. 

Thanks for all you do.

Mark Dimondstein

APWU President

Staying Safe

Kennith L. Beasley

September 16, 2020 

(This article first appeared in the September/October 2020 issue of the American Postal Worker magazine)

We all have been affected by the health and safety issues related to COVID-19. The uncertainty around when the pandemic will end continues to plague our everyday lives. The invisible virus seems to leave us defenseless.

There is also the added stress of our seemingly discombobulated, ill-advised, and misguided right-wing leaders who are actually putting finance before the health and safety of the American public. Hopefully, common sense and the belief “if my neighbor is at risk then I’m at risk as well” will win the day.

When Good is Not Good Enough

The health experts keep telling everyone to wear face masks in order to stop the spread of the virus. Many refuse and do not seem to realize the potential danger and harm of not wearing a mask. We should always listen to the health experts’ instructions.

Normally in the past when there was a widespread crisis of this sort, people drew closer and always tried to help each other. We should cooperate and use personal protection equipment (PPE) as advised. Think of your coworkers' welfare as well as your own – it will pay off in the long and short runs. We must stand up in defense of decency, normalcy, and humanity for ourselves and for generations to come. The quality and value of our future depends on what we do now.

I would like to quote Edmund Burke, who said “the only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men and women to do nothing, and say nothing.” In defending against the threats to our safety and our livelihood with President Trump’s attacks on our public Postal Service, we have to step up our political offense and defense.

Information is Power

I want to commend the Southern Region NBAs, local, and state presidents for reaching out to the district and regional managers and me. They have been instrumental in persuading management to involve employees on the workroom floor in COVID-19 teleconference conversations, information and messaging.

The safety and health information is about the precautions and preventative measures for employees’ protection, because the information is constantly changing. As of yet, there is no proven vaccine or cure for the virus. Information and knowledge are our major weapons to protect ourselves from the dangers of the coronavirus.

Mismanagement Puts Most Trusted Agency Status in Question

In a survey conducted this year in April, the Pew Research Center indicated a 91 percent favorable view of USPS. This is overwhelmingly higher than all other government agencies. We do a good job and could do the job much better if Postmaster General DeJoy would stop trying to hinder postal operations. Intentionally delaying mail, decommissioning machines, understaffing and lack of congressional funding are all examples of high-level management blocking postal operations.

Alleged Mail Fraud to Undermine Postal Service and Election

Note that investigations, both governmental and private, have shown that voter fraud is extremely rare when voting by mail. It has been proven through the years that the most secure form of voting is by mail. Computers can be hacked, but the mail cannot. When citizens put their ballots into the Postal Service receptacle, they know that the mail is protected by the postal inspectors, OIG, and postal employees. Voting by mail has the integrity that democracy depends on. Every American can conceivably easily vote by mail, because the ballots go to every residence.

Regional Coordinators Sharyn Stone, AJ Jones, Tiffany Foster, Omar Gonzalez and myself, all want you to know that the safety, health, and the well-being of our union members is one of the top priorities along with other union obligations and responsibilities. The stakes are high, and despite the many challenges we face, we remain committed to achieving world-class results for our members. As activist Stacey Abrams says, “when we fight, we win.”

Yours in Solidarity.

Make a Difference and Save Your Postal Job on Election Day

Debby Szeredy

September 16, 2020 

(This article first appeared in the September/October 2020 issue of the American Postal Worker magazine)

Currently, we have a U.S. President and many Senators who want to impose enormous financial burdens on the USPS. We have a President who is willing to give corporations, banks, and Wall Street stimulus money, but not the Postal Service – the highest rated government agency that serves all Americans during this pandemic. We have a new Postmaster General (PMG) with a long history of financial donations to the President’s election campaign, along with many other prominent politicians.

COVID-19 has reminded America that our service is essential. We provide access to a democratic, safe and secure election through vote by mail. We are the last hope for America during a crisis: restoring communications, commerce, and helping displaced victims from natural disasters. We protect people from bio-medical and bio-hazard attacks, provide emergency medications, testing, and vaccines. We provide services that protect people and save lives.

We now have a PMG who is slowing down mail service, closing post offices and stations, reducing hours and Saturday delivery, and who wants to open doors for corporations, including Amazon. What about his own previous logistics transportation postal service business? Is he planning a transportation program that helps contractors get profitable pieces of the USPS while doing his best to end the universal services that have been promised to the public?

Over the years, we have had cuts. Did you know that 54,678 post offices have been closed? We have 31,322 post offices left. There are 10,678 zip codes that don’t have a post office. By 2013, we had 402 mail processing facilities consolidated; now we have 265. These closures have caused constant overtime and high transportation costs. Our PMG has plans to cut the Postal Service even further, compromising our national, public, and essential infrastructure. This will affect communities and jobs everywhere. The previous PMG slowed down first-class mail delivery by 3-5 days; now people are reporting firstclass delays of up to 14 days. This is frustrating postal consumers. We cannot let the Board of Governors and the new Postmaster General destroy the world’s finest postal system.

Vote Early!

If you want to save your Postal Service job, save your benefits, your retirement and the public Postal Service for your family, your friends, your young children, your community, and your country, you must vote early.

Find out about early state election rules now! Go to voteathome.org, click on voter center, click the box to request your mail-in ballot and learn about your state rules. You can also find help on voting by mail at vote411.org.

Apply for an absentee ballot as early as possible, and send back your ballot as early as possible. Track your ballot, and make sure it is delivered to the correct election office by the November 3, 2020 deadline. Vote early for a president, vice president, senators, and house representatives who can save your job and your country. Help as many people as possible to vote by mail, early!

Management Must Abide by the Collective Bargaining Agreement

Vance Zimmerman

September 16, 2020 

(This article first appeared in the September/October 2020 issue of the American Postal Worker magazine)

It has been a different summer for all of us. Every member of the APWU has been touched by the COVID-19 pandemic in one way or another. Yet all of you continued to provide essential postal services to the public admirably and with dedication. The USPS also got a new Postmaster General who implemented changes and policies that severely degraded the services we provide. But you were not deterred; you still worked hard for the public.

The public recognized us for our dedicated work and stood up against the degrading of the service we provide and of our jobs. If we were all in the same room, I would ask you to give yourselves a round of applause for what you have done during the pandemic and the fight to protect the people’s Post Office!

With Postmaster General DeJoy taking the reins of the USPS, the people saw their service degraded and the mail slowed down. We work hard to get all the mail out every day, but PMG DeJoy put policies and procedures into place without understanding how we do our jobs and how the mail is processed, moved and delivered. PMG DeJoy also made these changes without consulting with the unions or getting any feedback on how the changes could impact our collective bargaining agreement with the USPS. Let us be clear – not a single decision he makes or policy he implements can usurp the tenets of our contract.

For example, overtime. All of us know that overtime was reduced. We also know that no manager or supervisor in the Postal Service would make such a decision without a higher directive – in this case from the PMG’s office. Just because he said “no overtime” does not mean the Post Office can ignore the overtime pecking orders of our LMOUs or Article 8. It does not mean that the Postal Service can ignore and violate the employee classification limitations of Article 7 and the various Memorandums of Understanding (MOUs) that are in place as part of the collective bargaining process.

In some locations where overtime was reduced, the USPS started using temporary assistants in all crafts in lieu of overtime, even if there were not COVID-19 related absences. The contract does not allow for this! The overtime desired list (OTDL) still must be used before these assistants are used and COVID-19 absences must be occurring. PSEs cannot work more than 8 hours in day without using the OTDL, and PSE caps still cannot be exceeded. No matter the PMG’s “cost cutting, post office saving” policies – the contract cannot be violated.

We all must watch for violations and insist the contract be enforced. Grievances must continue to be filed and postal management, including the PMG, must be held accountable!

New Local Memorandum of Understanding for Members at Large

In the last few months, the Local Memorandum of Understanding for Offices Without a Local Union Structure was finalized and signed. This LMOU provides significant rights to those employees whose offices are not represented by a local – often known as Members At Large.

The LMOU is especially helpful regarding leave. For example, it guarantees at least one person off on annual leave per APWU craft, per week (excluding December).

This is especially important if management tries to deny leave because the postmaster of the small office is also on leave. The LMOU requires that requests for incidental leave be acted upon within 72 hours. If not, the leave is considered approved. The LMOU also defines a specific pecking order for backfilling of bargaining unit employees on leave. The LMOU can be found on the APWU website under “Frequently Requested Resources" on the “For Locals” tab.

The 2018-2021 Collective Bargaining Agreement is also now available on both the website as well as in print form. Copies of the spiral bound book can be purchased on apwu.org through the “APWU Store” link. Register to vote and then do it! Solidarity!

Social Security Announces

1.3 Percent Benefit Increase for 2021

*Press release from the Social Security Administration

October 13, 2020  

SOCIAL SECURITY ANNOUNCES 1.3 PERCENT BENEFIT INCREASE FOR 2021

*The following is a press release from the Social Security Administration:

Social Security and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits for approximately 70 million Americans will increase 1.3 percent in 2021, the Social Security Administration announced today.

The 1.3 percent cost-of-living adjustment (COLA) will begin with benefits payable to more than 64 million Social Security beneficiaries in January 2021. Increased payments to more than 8 million SSI beneficiaries will begin on December 31, 2020. (Note: some people receive both Social Security and SSI benefits). The Social Security Act ties the annual COLA to the increase in the Consumer Price Index as determined by the Department of Labor's Bureau of Labor Statistics.

Some other adjustments that take effect in January of each year are based on the increase in average wages. Based on that increase, the maximum amount of earnings subject to the Social Security tax (taxable maximum) will increase to $142,800 from $137,700.

Social Security and SSI beneficiaries are normally notified by mail starting in early December about their new benefit amount. Most people who receive Social Security payments will be able to view their COLA notice online through their personal my Social Security account.

People may create or access their my Social Security account online at www.socialsecurity.gov/myaccount.

Information about Medicare changes for 2021, when announced, will be available at   www.medicare.gov.  For Social Security beneficiaries receiving Medicare, Social Security will not be able to compute their new benefit amount until after the Medicare premium amounts for 2021 are announced. Final 2021 benefit amounts will be communicated to  beneficiaries in December through the mailed COLA notice and my Social Security's Message Center.

The Social Security Act provides for how the COLA is calculated. To read more, please visit www.socialsecurity.gov/cola.

Two Additional Federal Courts Issue Injunctions Against Postal Service’s Policy Changes

October 2, 2020 

Two federal district courts have entered a third and fourth injunction against the Postal Service to undo the policy changes that it implemented over the summer and to protect voting by mail.

Judge Emmett Sullivan in Washington, D.C., found for a group of litigants led by the New York State Attorney General. The plaintiffs alleged that the policy changes implemented by Postmaster General Louis DeJoy over the summer were significant enough to be reviewed by the Postal Regulatory Commission (PRC).

The Court focused on removing sorting machines; operational changes to extra trips and late trips that the Postal Service itself described as a “pivot” to postal operations and culture; the ESAS pilot for city carriers; and communications suggesting ballots would not be handled as First Class Mail. The Court credited the testimony of various experts, including an APWU representative, that these changes had a meaningful impact on service for all types of mail, not only election mail. The Court concluded that these changes warranted the review and advice of the PRC.

In Pennsylvania, Judge Gerald McHugh entered an injunction against the Postal Service in a case led by the Pennsylvania Attorney General. Judge McHugh questioned the Postal Service’s approach to the changes it made and its failure to assess the impact of those changes on election mail. Judge McHugh borrowed from the proceedings and injunction in the case out of New York to enter a detailed order designed to improve communication of the processes developed by the Postal Service for handling election mail.

The Postal Service is actively taking steps to comply with the four court injunctions.

The injunctions reinforce the need for the Postal Service to take great care in making operational changes that effect its service to the American public. A vibrant public postal system is critical to the economic, social, and political life of the United States.

The APWU is working to preserve the Postal Service’s tradition of security, speed, and care for all users of the mail, no matter where they live, how much money they have, or how they vote.

Second Federal Court Issues Preliminary Injunction Against Postal Service To Protect Election Mail

September 24, 2020 

On Monday, Judge Victor Marrero on the federal district court for the Southern District of New York issued the second nationwide injunction against the Postal Service on election mail.  

This case, unlike the case decided last week in Washington State, raised legal issues only about voting and voting rights.  In a lengthy decision, the Court found that even if the Postmaster General did not intend his recent changes, ideas, and statements to impact election mail, managers in the field understood the PMG’s directives differently.  As a result, the Court concluded, there was a real risk that managers were not meeting the priority the Postal Service gives to election mail which could slow down processing and deprive some voters of the right to cast their ballots.    

Based on a recent USPS Inspector General audit, expert testimony, and testimony from APWU members, the Judge crafted a very specific injunction laying out detailed steps for the Postal Service to take to ensure election mail flows smoothly and quickly through the network.  Importantly, the Court instructed the Postal Service to immediately put its long-held practices for handling election mail in writing so all postal employees, especially supervisors and managers, know exactly how to process election mail.  

The Court also directed the Postal Service to ensure it has strong communication between headquarters and the field, and that all managers and supervisors be instructed on the steps to take to meet the Postal Service’s top priority of supporting voting by mail.  The Postal Service has already put out instructions to its high level managers to comply with the requirements of the Court’s injunction.

Like the first injunction, the tangible steps in this second injunction will ensure that all postal workers know the proven and tested policies and practices for handling election mail.  The APWU will continue to press in the Postal Service Task Force and in our own Joint Training Committee to make sure the Postal Service meets the requirements of the courts and the American public in living up to its tradition of careful and fast handling of election mail.   

The courts’ concern for competent Postal Service operations that serve critical public needs is another reminder of the importance of a strong public postal system.  That importance does not end on Election Day.  The APWU will continue to fight any dismantling of this national treasure alongside the states, groups and millions of individuals who have joined our battle for a public United States Postal Service.

Statement: Federal Court Issues Preliminary Injunction Against Postal Policies that Could Slow Election Mail

September 18, 2020 

Yesterday, Judge Stanley Bastian of the federal district court in Washington state issued a nationwide order prohibiting the Postal Service from making major operational changes before the November election. The lawsuit was led by the State of Washington, and it was joined by Colorado, Connecticut, Illinois, Michigan, Maryland, Minnesota, Nevada, New Mexico, Oregon, Rhode Island, Vermont, Virginia, and Wisconsin.

The Court was concerned that Postmaster General DeJoy was making or allowing operational changes or policies that could slow down the mail and result in the disenfranchisement of voters. The Judge directed the Postal Service to stop these changes, and not make any more changes that could interfere with the high quality of mail service that postal workers are rightly proud to provide the people of the country.

The injunction should mean a return to the policies and practices postal workers know that have successfully facilitated voting by mail for decades. Millions of people need to vote by mail this year to be safe and healthy. Millions more will want to vote by mail in the future. With this Court order and the PMG’s commitments to Congress, combined with the dedication of postal workers to our mission of public service, the people of the country should be confident in the Postal Service’s ability to safely and securely process and deliver election mail this fall.

This year has brought postal workers many unprecedented challenges, tragedies and successes. A federal court stepping in to stop bad management of our treasured public Postal Service is the latest. It underscores how important the Postal Service is, not only to postal workers and our families, but to the democratic process as well.

The APWU calls on the Postal Service to keep its promises and follow the rule of law. And the APWU will be there to make sure it does, working at every level to make sure election mail is handled with the same care and speed that has always been the Postal Service’s tradition for voting by mail.

Postal workers are proud to serve the public no matter what challenges we face, whether they come from outside or inside the Postal Service. Together we’ll continue our hard work to preserve and expand a public Postal Service that meets the needs of our families, our community, and our country.
