I don’t know if you guys were able to participate in the teleconference with APWU HQ for the town hall meeting, but there was something I learned that will spell trouble for present and future impacted employees. I was not aware that the MOU 50-mile limit to excessing expires with the 2010 CBA.
Whether we reach an agreement or go to arbitration, this MOU expires and management is firmly against renegotiation on this point. The status quo is in place until a new CBA is in place. This sheds some light on why our DPS processing is TBD.
Sources in STL say that the P&DC is still reeling from taking on Centralia and Carbondale, IL’s mail. It would make more sense to send 636 to STL and process Southern IL’s mail in Cape Girardeau. But when has any of this made sense???
