APWU Slams Postal Service on BMC Name Change
APWU Web News Article #086-09, July 29, 2009
In a letter to USPS management [PDF], APWU President William Burrus admonished the Postal Service for failing to officially notify the union that the Bulk Mail Center network has been renamed the Network Distribution Center network.
“We have negotiated contractual provisions specifically applicable to the BMC and must discuss the ramifications of the change to contractual provisions,” he wrote on July 24. “I am disturbed that the union has not been officially notified of the change and I demand a full explanation.”
The APWU became aware of the official name-change when it came into possession of a copy of a notice to USPS officers informing them of the change.
The union received official notification [PDF] on July 28.
