APWU and USPS Agree to an Extension

11/20/2018 – Our current Collective Bargaining Agreement (Union Contract) initially expired on September 20, 2018. The APWU and the U.S. Postal Service agreed to extend negotiations until October 20th after which the parties again extended negotiations until November 20th. During that period the APWU and the Postal Service engaged in a series of negotiating sessions.

The APWU believes recent negotiations have been fruitful and we have made progress towards a framework of an agreement.

In that light, the APWU and the USPS have agreed to continue our negotiating efforts until December 7th.

“We are continuing to work hard to reach a voluntary agreement that is fair to our members”, said APWU President Mark Dimondstein. “Hopefully, over the next two weeks we will achieve a tentative agreement, meet with the rank and file bargaining committee and, if they approve, put a tentative contract to a vote of all the members. If December 7th comes and goes without an agreement, the APWU will move forward with the interest arbitration process. Stay tuned and wear your union gear with pride!”

Come on APWU,this needs to be the last extension,if they won’t come to an agreement by this date it should be see you in arbitration.

I totally agree ? Why are we pussy footing around with this beauracradic B.S. we need a new contract and we need to show the post office who’s in charge of this deal. I bet you if the NALC/APWU came together in solidarity we wouldn’t be discussing any of this. We need a leadership who has the guts to standup and say enough is enough.
