DENVER – The United States Postal Service is gearing up for the busy holiday shipping season by hiring scores of people in Colorado.

Officials said USPS will hire more than 1,000 workers at post offices and mail processing facilities up and down the Front Range corridor. Open positions include mail carriers, assistant and associate carriers and postal support workers.  The postal service is looking to fill a variety of different shifts, with wages ranging from $12.00 to $17.40 per hour.

    So, at least the USPS is finally admitting these Christmas season temporary jobs may turn into longer term positions if the employee so desires, in most cases. If hired as a clerk into the American Postal Workers Union (APWU), the new employees will be non career with a place in line to become career USPS employees based on their date of hire as a temporary PSE, (Postal Support Employee). They will also be eligible for Union negotiated employer based health care after 1 year as a non-career employee . The non-career, but Union represented, PSE employees, will also earn 8 hours per month of personal leave time and are paid for 6 of the 10 major holidays per year! Considering the USPS sorts mail 365 days per year, the PSEs would get double time for the hours they will most likely have to work on New Year’s Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day, and Christmas. The current APWU negotiated rate for these “temporary” PSE employees is $16.62 per hour which will increase by 2.3% in November of 2017 and by another .21 cents in May of 2018! Come join the American Postal Worker’s Union and help us fight for the employees who provide the most appreciated, efficient, essential, and cheapest government service in this country today.
