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
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.
