Postal employees no longer expected to maintain harmonious working relationships, pleasant working environment?

ELM Revision: Behavior and Personal Habits

Effective August 6, 2015, the Postal Service™ is revising the Employee and Labor Relations Manual (ELM) section 665.16.

665.16 Behavior and Personal Habits
[Delete the last sentence in its entirety:]

Employees are expected to conduct themselves during and outside of working hours in a manner that reflects favorably upon the Postal Service. Although it is not the policy of the Postal Service to interfere with the private lives of employees, it does require that postal employees be honest, reliable, trustworthy, courteous, and of good character and reputation. The Federal Standards of Ethical Conduct referenced in 662.1 also contain regulations governing the off–duty behavior of postal employees. Employees must not engage in criminal, dishonest, notoriously disgraceful, immoral, or other conduct prejudicial to the Postal Service. Conviction for a violation of any criminal statute may be grounds for disciplinary action against an employee, including removal of the employee, in addition to any other penalty imposed pursuant to statute. Employees are expected to maintain harmonious working relationships and not to do anything that would contribute to an unpleasant working environment.

  1. Union and NAME of Local/Branch
    APWU Local 667 Fayetteville AR
    Office held, if any
    Maint Steward

    This is just the first step of letting the USPS control our lives. Legislating morality and what is disgraceful is a matter of opinion. Next they will be telling us where and what we can eat and watch. I heard that due to so much Union Solidarity one USPS plant bought and ordered the employees USPS shirts so they could not wear the APWU ones.

  2. Union and NAME of Local/Branch
    APWU TCAL 3800
    Office held, if any
    Maintenance Craft Director

    WOW
    Only in the postal service.
    More harassment from management now on its way.
