Sorting and Distribution of Priority Mail

Clerk Craft Members:

Based on the Step 3 settlement of a crossing craft violation grievance filed in 1999, which involved a twenty (20) year odyssey, the APWU has requested that all sorting and distribution of priority mail work being performed by mail handlers cease and desist immediately and that the work be assigned to clerks. The request was submitted to the Oakland P&DC Senior Plant Manager.

Deployment of the USS in the Oakland P&DC

Clerk Craft Members:

I have been advised by Sr. Operations Support Specialist, In-Plant-Support Shu “Kelvin” Zhang that the deployment of the Universal Sorting System (USS) in the Oakland P&DC will be sometime in August 2019. APBS #1 will be removed from the Oakland P&DC starting July 12, 2019.

According to Zhang, the deployment of the USS will not have an adverse impact on the clerk craft. Zhang also stated that the Priority Sacks Operation will not be phased out.

If you have any questions regarding this announcement, please contact your shop steward.

Special Edition of May Postal WORKER West

They’re Back !!

Washington DC — Management has begun the process of planning and executing involuntary reassignments.

Postal officials issued notice to Union HQ of their intent to abolish, revert or excess from BMEU and Mailing Requirement operations, including the Pacific and Western Areas. After almost a year of supposed evaluation and interviews management is gearing up for actual excessing (i.e., involuntary reassignments). The Union has been alerting locals of this eventual impact for some time and issued a Do’s and Dont’s listing for clerks to follow.
