USPS is Testing Self-Driving Trucks

Our President of South Jersey Area Local, Rob Armentani, had this to say:

The link below is on the APWU website posted June 14 concerning the USPS pilot of driverless tractors driving from Dallas to Phoenix with live mail. We are requesting our members, families,friends, and the community to go to the FMCSA website and make comments. We are concerned with the federal government relaxing the safety standards and regulations on driverless trucks. We are asking that you encourage your network to submit comments that cautions the government about these types of vehicles and their impact on the trucking industry.

Comments are allowed until July 29 but we want to start as soon as possible.”

APWU National Debates 2019

Our President of South Jersey Area Local, Rob Armentani, had this to say:

“At the June EB Meeting we endorsed several candidates running for APWU National Offices. At the time we agreed not to make an endorsement for the positions of President, Executive Vice President and Director of Industrial Relations until after the debates at the President’s Conference in San Antonio. The membership agreed at the GMM to support whoever the EB endorsed after the debates so it would not have to be put before them again for approval. 

Attached you will find the videos of each debate.”

The National elections are important this year! See for yourself who are the candidates.
