At Opening Session, Union Breaks with Tradition

Contract negotiations between the American Postal Workers Union and the U.S. Postal Service got underway on Feb. 19

and AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka, who made brief remarks following a statement by APWU President Mark Dimondstein. 

National Association of Letter Carriers President Fredric Rolando joined APWU negotiators at the bargaining table as well.

With a Golden Parachute in Hand, Donahoe Opposes Retirement for Young Workers

When Postmaster General Patrick Donahoe retires at the end of the week, hell get a retirement package of more than $4 million.  

Not bad for a civil servant.

 

But in his controversial farewell address to reporters at the National Press Club on Jan. 6, Donahoe made clear 

that he doesnt think the unions newest members deserve any postal retirement at all. 

 

 

 

Contract Training Session: Ready to Get Started!

Training for the unions campaign to win a good contract moved to the Northeast Region 

on Jan. 21 and 22, and participants left the two-day session ready to get started.
