To: Bulk Mail Clerks/Mailing Requirement Clerks
In an effort to save and protect duty assignments the national APWU has created some forms and guidance to the employees to assist in protecting their own jobs. Everyone has a personal responsibility to save their work for not only themselve but for the next generation of postal employees, which might even be their family and friends.
We can not do this alone at the national level, you as an employee has to share in that responsibility.
With new technology and the Postal Service’s continued effort to outsource your work, it is important for everyone to work as a team to protect our work.
We have attached some Do’s and Don’ts for BMEU clerks and SOX compliance forms for the respective BMEU and the Mailing Requirements Clerks.
I would like to personally thank Richard Haefner, APWU Minnesota State President who tolerates my telephone calls late at night and the BMEU/Mailing Requirement clerks that provided him with valuable input.
The SOX compliance forms are self-explanatory. Once the four-step form is completed, we request the Local President maintain a copy at the local union send a copy of the form to the following national APWU Clerk Division e-mail address:
Please share with your APWU state/local officers and stewards and make sure plenty of copies are made available at all times in any work area where bulk mail clerks and mailing requirement clerks are domiciled. I also ask that you post then on your Union bulletin boards.
At some point these document may be shared with the OIG.
At the very least, the Postal Service will be aware that APWU will be fighting to protect the survivor of a thriving Postal Service with work being performed by postal employees.
Together we can win?
In Union solidarity, the struggle continues.
