09/13/2018 – When the USPS made changes to Chapters 5 and 7 of the Postal Operations Manual (POM) in 1995, APWU challenged the changes as not fair, reasonable, and equitable. While USPS agreed to restore the language in 2007 and again in 2012, they never did. APWU never stopped fighting. On August 28, we reached an agreement with the USPS to restore the language within 12 weeks. “This language is significant because it protects work that is presently being performed in the MVS Craft,” said Michael Foster, Motor Vehicle Service (MVS) Division Director.
