Urgent Safety Alert
WEB NEWS ARTICLE #: 101-2018

10/24/2018 – Breaking news: It has just been reported that explosive devices have been sent through the mail addressed to a number of high-profile individuals and corporate entities.

APWU leaders condemn such criminal acts.

Our members are rightfully deeply concerned for their own well being and that of the public we serve.

In response to this urgent crisis, the Postal Service is in the process of scheduling nationwide “Stand Up” safety talks regarding procedures for recognizing suspicious packages and protocols to follow. We will share the safety talk as soon as we receive a copy.

We urge all our members to be alert and vigilant to protect your safety and well-being and that of your co-workers and the public.

The APWU leadership is in constant touch with top postal management as these disturbing events unfold. As more information comes to light we will keep you updated.

In Solidarity,

Jason Treier
APWU National Business Agent
Eastern Region – Maintenance Division
