A More Perfect Union

The United States Postal Service is undergoing a 10-year plan to modernize its processing and delivery network, including the establishment of Regional Processing and Distribution Centers (RPDCs) and the repurposing of some facilities. This plan has already led to changes in mail processing and delivery efficiency, such as the establishment of the Atlanta RPDC region with a new facility in Palmetto and the repurposing of four Local Processing Centers (LPCs). However, these changes also bring challenges for employees represented by the American Postal Workers Union (APWU), including shifts in job roles, work locations, and schedules. The APWU is committed to protecting its members’ interests throughout this transformation, ensuring transparent communication, enforcing the collective bargaining agreement (CBA), initiating grievances when necessary, and advocating for fair treatment.

Here’s an excellent 14 min. video by “A More Perfect Union” explaining how Postmaster General Louis DeJoy is destroying the postal service.


“I told you so…” just happened. Remember when service delivery changes was announced and you (the employee) said, “Why are they changing it? That ain’t gonna work?”

Atlanta RPDC crashes on launch

USPS watchdog report has senators wanting answers, possible firings

The U.S. Postal Service has caught the ire of three senators looking for answers — and possibly for heads to roll — after a watchdog report found the agency significantly underreported late mail delivery.

In a letter to Postmaster General Megan Brennan, Sens. Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.) and Heidi Heitkamp (D-N.D.) urged the Postal Service to “take immediate action” after the Office of Inspector General reported in August that USPS had underreported about 2 billion pieces of mail nationwide over the course of a year.

News of the delayed mail delivery should come as no surprise to the senators, who have previously complained about the timeliness of delivery in rural parts of their respective states. Constituents from Missouri have submitted “numerous photographic examples of mail sitting in bins waiting to be delivered,” despite records showing it had been sent, while Heitkamp’s office has collected hundreds of mail service complaints through its Fix My Mail initiative.

“The mail continues to be a vital lifeline in rural American and the dependence on this service as a way to deliver goods as well as connect individuals, communities and businesses demands that it be a reliable and accurate mode of delivery,” the senators wrote.
