Contract talks between the APWU and Postal Service have continued throughout the week and are ongoing, President Cliff Guffey has reported. “We are pursuing our goals,” he said. “We want job security for our members, and we want to lessen the disruption our members suffer as a result of excessing.” The parties also are discussing wages, benefits, and issues related to workforce structure.
“We are determined to negotiate a contract that is beneficial to our members and to the USPS,” he said. “If we are unable to reach an agreement that is fair to postal workers, we are prepared to proceed to arbitration.”
The parties are expected to continue discussions on Friday, Dec. 10.
