APWU Pittsburgh Retiree Record – June 22, 2018 Edition

Via John P. Richards, President – Pittsburgh Area Retiree Chapter of the APWU:


Comment: For the life of me, I cannot understand the mindset that produced the redundant, unnecessary, unworkable, and provocative caveat contained in the letter, i.e., “…provided the issues addressed in the resolutions strictly address “retiree” issues.” Was there really a concern that the Chapters have the inclination or devious intent to undermine the Locals or the Union with resolutions against them? Moreover, were they retiree issues that provided retiree leadership for the three year Staples boycott? Our Chapter has been heavily involved in Letter Carrier issues such as six day delivery, cluster boxes, annual food drive, etc. Will resolutions in support of those efforts not be accepted? Come on NEB, you may and should take another look at that language and rescind it.

    What fuels this is union members thinking of themselves first. One local officer in Oakland, CA urged a yes vote on the 2010 contract because we already got ours.

    Being the trusting sort, I trust that issues that address the operation, or function of the USPS would be considered relevant to retirees. Retirees rely on the financial health of the USPS, just as do active members.
