APWU local unions are organizing events throughout the country to protest the sweetheart deal between the USPS and Staples that puts postal retail operations in Staples stores  and staffs them with low-wage, high-turnover Staples employees. 

The best way to defend living-wage jobs and public postal services is to keep this dirty deal in the public eye. Our protests have already received news coverage nationwide  now its your turn to help spread the word.

Letter from APWU National President Cliff Guffey (pdf)

APWU Opposes USPS Surveys

The APWU opposes worker participation in USPS employee opinion surveys.

The union's policy, adopted by the National Executive Board in 1998 contests the use of all surveys, focus groups, polls and audits as a means of interviewing employees and union officials to evaluate job related and internal union issues.

Employees should remember that opinion surveys are often designed to elicit a specific response or result, historically against our bargaining unit employees.

APWU advises all Employees to read the entire survey on-the-clock. When finished reading, rip their survey up, and place it back into the envelope to return to Management. If you do not destroy the survey, management can take the blank survey and have an opportunity to complete it themselves.
