  • Amendments are needed

    It's my understanding that the APWU and the other unions do not support S1789 as written. With 74 amendments as of today, it's going to be a battle. I believe the APWU does support S1789 with the consideration of some amendments: • Provide adequate relief from the retiree healthcare prefunding requirement. • Set strict service standards. (The Postal Service is planning to degrade delivery standards in order to eliminate more than half of all mail processing facilities.) • Allow the USPS to recover overpayments the Postal Service made to its retiree pension funds. • Establish new ways to generate revenue, such as providing notary services, issuing licenses, contracting with state and local agencies to provide services, and allowing the USPS to offer services that mail systems in many other countries provide, such as digital services. • Prevent the closing of small post offices by giving the Postal Regulatory Commission binding authority to prevent closures based on the effect on the community and employees. • Protect six-day delivery. • Eliminate the provision that would drastically reduce the compensation of workers who are injured on duty once they reach retirement age. • Repeal the provision that would require arbitrators in postal contract negotiations to consider the financial health of the USPS. (Arbitrators routinely do so. The requirement is an attempt to skew contract negotiations in favor of management.)
