USPS, NALC Carrier Alert program marks 30th anniversary

This year marks the 30th anniversary of the Carrier Alert program, jointly managed by USPS and the National Association of Letter Carriers (NALC). The program’s objective is to maintain a vigilant eye on local elderly, sick or disabled citizens.

The Postal Service and NALC launched Carrier Alert in 1982, partnering with social service agencies across the country.

The all-volunteer program is a natural extension of the daily role letter carriers play in America’s neighborhoods. It takes advantage of their daily presence to help identify customers who may be in need of assistance, due to illness or an accident. Accumulated mail is often a sign that assistance might be needed.

“The value of Carrier Alert has been demonstrated repeatedly throughout the past 30 years,” said PMG Pat Donahoe.

“Watchful letter carriers have helped thousands of our customers and confirmed our commitment to serving America’s communities in ways that go beyond simply delivering the mail.”

  1. Too bad you can’t kick the living daylights out of failures whether the President of the USA or President of a Union, Guffey failed the membership with the giveaway contract, union’s fight, they do not settle unless it is in the best interests of the membership,30 hours is Full time?, crap!,APWU and all of Guffey’s National should be ashamed, Guffey also screwed the other unions, management said point blank, “We used that (APWU) contract in our negotiations with the other Unions”, so keep on drinking Guffey and his supporters Kool-Aid, any union defenders or defenders of the current union and its officers, are wrong to defend this current APWU hierarchy, the union itself is a necessity, those running it currently , have done irreparable harm to the current and future members,so we must firmly believe that the Union is negotiating on our behalf, after the anti Union Contract that the APWU signed ( and how many sheep led to slaughter voted for it? ), there better be results in favor of the members,unless the Union shows that it is USPS that has doomed any Voluntary early Retirement, and that VER must be like the Mail Handlers, across the board, Guffey has the benefit of the doubt for now,how many NTFT jobs does the National Union have?, did they forgo raises and colas?
