APWU to Harvard President: Stop Staples Deal or Quit Board

The APWU has placed a full-page ad in The Harvard Crimson calling on Harvard University President Drew Faust 

“to do the right thing or resign.” The right course of action, the ad says, is for Dr. Faust to use her influence 

to end the no-bid deal Faust serves on the board of Staples, where she earns $300,000 per year.




The Ed Show:

It’s Going to Take a Lot Longer for Mail to Get From Point A to Point B

Overnight Mail Could be a thing of the Past

The Postal Service intends to lower service standards again on Jan. 5, MSNBC broadcaster Ed Schultz 

told his audience on Oct. 20, and that means “it’s going to take a lot longer for your mail to get from 

Point A to Point B. “Overnight mail could be a thing of the past,” he declared. “Eighty-two mail processing facilities across 

37 states are scheduled to be ‘consolidated.’” Schultz dismissed claims that the USPS is losing billions of dollars. 

“The reality is the so-called crisis is a manufactured one.”




Retiree COLAs Set at 1.7%

The Social Security Administration has announced a cost-of-living adjustment (COLA) of 1.7 percent 

for the Federal Employees Retirement System (FERS) and Civil Service Retirement System (CSRS). 

The increase will be reflected in January 2015 annuity payments.
