  • Standing Up Against Management Misconduct
    Updated On: Jun 15, 2024

    Greetings to all our esteemed members across the state of Colorado,

    We bring to your attention some concerning developments within our postal service that demand our collective attention and action.

    First and foremost, it has come to our attention that certain management directives are compromising the integrity of our service. Management has instructed clerks to manipulate barcode scanning, undermining the accuracy and reliability of our operations. Such actions not only betray our commitment to service excellence but also jeopardize the trust of our valued customers.

    Furthermore, management's decision to alter mail processing procedures is causing undue inconvenience to both employees and customers alike. Moving processing centers to distant locations and subsequently driving mail back for delivery, sometimes over 200 miles, is leading to significant delays. The assurances of minimal impact on delivery made by management have proven to be grossly inaccurate.

    In Grand Junction, the proposed relocation of mail processing to Denver, particularly during harsh weather conditions, would further exacerbate these challenges".

    At a recent town hall meeting, over 200 concerned customers sought answers, yet management evaded accountability.

    In light of these troubling developments, we urge our members to stand together and take action. When the time comes, we will provide guidance on how to voice our concerns effectively, including contacting Congress to demand accountability for these disruptions to mail service.

    It is imperative to remember the vital role our union plays in safeguarding our rights and interests, especially as we approach the expiration of our national contract in September.

    The upcoming negotiations in November will be pivotal, and your union dues play a crucial role in ensuring our collective bargaining power

    We must also address misconceptions about union membership. Every benefit and protection we enjoy, from cost-of-living adjustments to healthcare benefits and paid holidays, is a direct result of union advocacy. While grievances may arise, abandoning the union only weakens our ability to fight for our rights collectively.

    As we look ahead to November, let us not forget the importance of exercising our right to vote, both for the future of our country and the strength of our union.

    In conclusion, we call upon all dues-paying members to engage with their colleagues and encourage them to join our union. Together, we can uphold the principles of fairness, integrity, and solidarity that define our profession.

    Thank you for your unwavering support,

    David Steinbach
