EAP Updates

Hi,

My name is Susan from EAP in the South Jersey district. I was checking out the union website and am hoping that EAP  could be mentioned as a resource on the website. I wanted to provide some handouts (attached below)for you to distribute, as necessary. They include some awesome new features available to employees and their family members.

The same methods are available such as  24/7 hotline and website access for info or referrals; but we also have a Talkspace option and Mystrength feature that is new and available at no charge to the employees.  If you have any questions, please reach out. Thanks for your time.

 Make the call to the EAP at 1-800-327-4968 or visit the website www.eap4you.com 24 hours a day for information and help.

AVP Talks Safety – Mandated Area Talk – Recognizing Suspicious Mail #3221

As many of you are already aware, some dangerous explosive devices to a number of high profile individuals and corporations. APWU HQ just posted this urgent news article online:
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
