Sisters and Brothers,
As you all know we extended negotiations until midnight tonight (Oct 20th) after we were unable to achieve a negotiated settlement midnight Sept. 20th.
The APWU and Postal management have again agreed to extend negotiations for an additional 30 days. We have a series of meetings set up with the postal service over the next few weeks and of course will keep all posted if there are any significant developments.
Shortly we will publish a website article and I will be leaving an updated phone message.
