MOU on Filling Residual Vacancies

Most APWU members should be aware of the recent March 20 agreement between the APWU and USPS which creates the procedure for filling residual vacancies in the Clerk, Maintenance and Motor Vehicle Crafts.

With the help from others in our Rogue Valley community, we took to the street to educate the public.

Neither snow, nor rain, nor heat, nor gloom of night stays these Clerks from protesting the Postal Service’s sweetheart deal with Staples that is moving mail service into Staples stores. …
