    Dan Kuralt expresses concerns many retired members and past leadership have with HR 756. A red flag always goes up when I read that it’s “not a perfect” bill! Okay, rather than always touting the positive aspects of the legislation; exactly what is/are the “imperfect” aspects….unvarnished? I marvel at the statements that it’s “fair” to active members and retirees. Retirees are shouldering the entire weight of the proposed legislation.

    The matters of door-to-door delivery, and preserving 6-day delivery, are primarily NALC issues, but supported by all postal workers, regardless of craft. I could be wrong-headed in thinking the NALC contract negotiations are in an extended status. Would anyone be surprised if NALC’s Rolando has an ace up his sleeve on those 2 vital issues?

    With HR 756 almost universally endorsed by APWU Local & State Union leadership, and supposedly the other 3 postal Unions; I want potential members to the APWU Constitution Committee, and delegates to the 2018 APWU National Convention to give their full, fair, and careful consideration to a Resolution amending the Constitution to provide proportionate retiree Chapter delegate REPRESENTATION in Convention. We earned it! Active members jobs allegedly saved if HR 756 is enacted. If that’s as true as being sold, retired members are owed Big Time!
