Expanding Paid Leave & Dependent Care Leave
Excerpt from letter from Mark Dimondstein, President of American Postal Workers Union, AFL-CIO, along with referenced MOU documents:
Dear APWU Family,
Our first priority during the ongoing coronavirus outbreak has been ensuring the health and safety of our members and that of the public.
To that end, today the union signed two memoranda of understanding with the Postal Service temporarily expanding paid leave for PSEs and expanding the use of dependent care leave for postal employees with unexpected childcare needs as a result of the pandemic.
Mark Dimondstein, President
American Postal Workers Union, AFL-CIO
