    “Very happy for the PSEs, but the level 6 working the window everyday was left behind as well as the clerks in F1” ? Left behind with a No Layoff Clause, a 50 Mile Limit on Excessing, and a 40 Hour Guarantee, seems like we were left with Job Security to me. COLAs and raises that cover the Health Ins. Premium increase mean we won’t fall behind financially. Left Behind Who? How?

    If this contract was actually arbitrated instead of a dog and pony show, I would agree with you sister. Look who was our arbitrator, Phil Tabitta maybe the greatest mind at HQ but a light weight on an arbitration panel such as this. Look at the postal service’s arbitrator, a staff attorney, and yes another light weight. This agreement/arbitration was worked out between President Dimondstein and Tullino a long time ago. Look at the rural carriers settling first, just doesn’t happen unless they have a pretty good idea what were getting. Then Goldberg relies heavy on such a smaller craft with no similar work activities. Talk with members of the rank and file and ask them if mostly all of the non-economic issues were all worked out? I am very happy for the PSEs, but the level 6 working the window everyday was left behind as well as the clerks in F1. My opinion of course.

    How is an arbitrator decision a sell out? APWU didn’t make that statement. I feel like APWU made our wishes known well. Yes, we didn’t get everything we asked for, but how can you blame the administration for the arbitration?
