    I just read it is expected on the 18th, expected??? Why is there no definite answer and why is it so hard to find any information on it?

    Yet another brilliant example of USPS management using Union Busting PR tactics to inflict both psychological and financial harm on the APWU. Management expertly exploited this situation knowing the APWU Membership would predictably blame the APWU for the delay rather than place the blame on management where it belongs.

    You see that by management making promises to APWU Membership that led to long awaited anticipation and high expectations, and then management reneging on those promises, management succeeds in making the APWU and President Dimondstein appear to be weak and inept.

    With this “delay” which is nothing more than management is sending a not-so-subtle message to our membership that management does not respect the APWU or its president and management can, and will do whatever it wants with zero consequences.

    The bottom line of management’s strategy that Goebbels would be proud of is that management’s “delay” will cost the APWU both a loss of face and a loss of faith by its Membership, but will also cost the APWU financially as some will quit the APWU in retaliation for the broken promises.

    Management should be held accountable and made to pay an appropriate remedy for this most recent example of its devious double crossing total lack of ethics dealings with the APWU.

    Checked today and no retro pay, it would have been nice for an update before the pay period it was expected. When will we be getting the retro pay now? Will it be the 18th or postponed even more?

    There was no retroactive pay in pay period 22. Does anyone know when we will have this payment, because it was expected for this pay period? Thanks.
