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.

The San Francisco Region Sentinel April 2019 Issue # 5

FRIENDS, FAMILIES, COMMUNITIES…..LEND ME YOUR EARS

FROM THE DESK OF: JAMES SCOGGINS

In January of this year Sonia and I had the pleasure and honor to participate in the Los Angeles Teacher’s strike, which resulted from the Los Angeles Unified School District’s failure to negotiated a much-deserved collective bargaining agreement. Within a week or so after the teachers went on strike a negotiated collective bargaining agreement was reached. However, as important as this event was, that is not the subject of this article.

To get to this event we took the gold-line light rail from Pasadena to the Union Train Station in downtown Los Angeles where we had to transfer
and take the red-line light rail to our destination. While we were waiting on the platform proudly wearing our APWU gear, we were approached by a
young man who appeared to be in his mid-thirties and he told us that his father retired from the USPS and was a member of the San Diego Area Local. The gentleman went to tell us that while his dad was still employed and when he was a senior in high school that he applied for one of the APWU Scholarship Funds and he got it. He went on to say how that made such a positive impression on his life, which is why he was out supporting the striking teachers in their efforts. Oh yeah and let me back up a little bit, this young man is now a psychologist with the Los Angeles Unified School District and on this particular day it was raining cats and dogs, yet he took the time to come out and support the teacher’s union and their efforts.
