Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA)

The Postal Service has been sharing and posting posters on the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA). This law does apply to the Postal Service. The law will be effective on April 1, 2020. We are in continuing discussions with the Postal Service on how it will be implemented and how the Postal Service will comply. We will continue to release more information as we get it worked out.

Please Disseminate and know we are working on getting you the answers.

Function 4/PASS/Clerks

Here are some words from our Lamont Brooks.

All employees should be exercising social distancing for safety reasons.

Employees should be considerate of each as it pertains to social distancing and alerting supervisors in situations where it is not taking place.

Vance secured a response on the PASS, but social distancing should be applied period.

Please share with the APWU local officers, stewards and clerk employees.

Local leadership should be addressing many of these issues based on directives already sent to the field.

If local management are not following protocol, elevate the specific issue to your respective NBAs first, for intervention at their level to avoid overwhelming HQ officers.

Thank you for your cooperation.
