APWU President William Burrus met with Stephen Crawford, a member of President-Elect Obama’s Transition Team, at the union’s national headquarters on Dec. 8, where the two “engaged in a thoughtful conversation about the future of the U.S. Postal Service and postal workers.”
“Mr. Crawford impressed me as a highly intelligent individual, who is extremely knowledgeable about public policy,” Burrus said.
Crawford has also met with USPS executives, and members of the Postal Regulatory Commission. He is expected to meet with representatives of other postal unions as well.
Crawford is deputy director of the Metropolitan Policy Program at the Brookings Institution, a highly-respected public policy think tank.
