APWU Preparing for Negotiations
Here is an update from the APWU National Convention relating to the upcoming 2010 contract negotiations. The following is an excerpt from President Burrus:
Preparing for Negotiations
Burrus reminded delegates that the next round of contract negotiations is set to begin just days after the conclusion of the convention, and said the union’s goals are to restrict excessing, gain access to information from the Postal Service without cost, win more opportunities for upward mobility, limit subcontracting, and increase wages.
While 2010 bargaining will be difficult, Burrus assured delegates that the union expects to achieve more gains in these negotiations.
“We expect a contract that adequately rewards members for maintaining the best postal system in the world.”
