Even the Titanic Had Survivors – a message from Coordinator Gonzalez
Some economists say a postal career is the worst. The media and some in the public point to our looming death. Things are not pretty, but postal workers throughout the decades have shown how resilient we are to the ills that befall us.
Since the days of the pony express we have been cast as dispensable government employees. But in today’s postal service while the PMG applauds us for the service we provide he appears to be doing everything possible to ensure we sink to the point of no return.
Every day management violates our contract, undermines employment laws and despite the dignity and respect mantra they espouse proceed to treat many of us with contempt.
Consolidation, office closure and disruptions are daily turmoil we face. But nothing we face threatens us like the APATHY of so many of our fellow workers who like to blame but take no action to fight back. If we all take action and help ensure that USPS is not undercut we will ensure that we and our beloved postal service survive. We do not have to sink, we do not have to perish!
