APWU Guffey: ‘Real Efforts’ to Reach Agreement Begin

“We had a good meeting,” Guffey told the union’s Rank and File Bargaining Advisory Committee Tuesday morning. “We discussed returning jobs to our bargaining unit.”

Restoring work that has been subcontracted or assigned to managerial personnel will bring stability to APWU members who have suffered extensive excessing and reassignments, Guffey has repeatedly pointed out. It also will benefit the Postal Service, since APWU members can perform the work less expensively, he noted.

The union and management are scheduled to meet again on Tuesday, Nov. 16. The Collective Bargaining Agreement expires Nov. 20.
