From its beginning in 1979, the Postal Labor Unions Summer School has focused intently on the specific needs of union members in the U.S. Postal Service. At the heart of the curriculum is the grievance process, with the essential goal to foster skills and viewpoints that support the union and the labor movement. Although workshops are built around the steward’s role, PLUSS also makes room for concerns and events that affect the labor movement broadly. The Institute for Labor Studies and Research is proud to sponsor this exceptional educational opportunity on the campus of West Virginia University. We urge all Locals in the American Postal Workers Union to take full advantage of what has proven to be one of the most valuable learning experiences offered within the umbrella of the Unions representing members in the United States Postal Service.
