Postal Workers, USPS Prove Public Employee Bargaining Works

While governors and state lawmakers across the country are attacking the right of public employees to bargain, the Postal Workers (APWU) and the U. S. Postal Service (USPS) today showed that public employees and government can work together to solve financial problems and provide good service. The two sides have reached a tentative agreement on a new contract, which APWU President Cliff Guffey says is “a win-win proposition” for both parties.

In a video to members, Guffey said:

When workers across the country are fighting to protect their right to collective bargaining, our tentative agreement is a testament to a great American freedom: The right of workers to have a voice at work and to negotiate for a better life.
