Congratulations to the E-Board that was formally elected. The board will stay the same with the addition of Tim Pearson as the new Maintenance Craft Director. Welcome to the team Tim, and thank you.
Lots of offices are having issues with supervisors or other Craft employees doing their work. make sure we are filing for every minute.
Covid is hurting many offices. Attendance policies are making people come to work even when they are sick. stay home if you are sick especially if you have Covid or symptoms.
Employees are getting 30/60/90 day reviews where supervisors are lazily falsifying them by saying employees are “unsatisfactory” just so they have room for improvement…. Let us know if you are experiencing this in your office this is absurd and only hurts morale in offices.
In a turn of events that nobody could predict, we have new Meeting Pool Champion. Shari and some guy named Roger showed up and went undefeated to claim the title. who knows how long they will stay on top.
We have had a lot of recent hostile work environments in our offices. These should not be tolerated by management. Every employee has the right to go to work and feel safe as well as work in an environment free from harassment. Recently we have found out that management will ignore this issues unless it gets outside the Postal Service. Because of this, I have found that Anne Landman is a great resource to get Postal Issues out to the community. The community is very interested in stories about the Postal Service. We should take advantage of this. If you are having issues involving harassment or hostility in your office, reach out to Anne Here.
Will you call your senators to support the USPS Shipping Equity Act? The USPS is banned from shipping alcohol while private shippers make large profits from its delivery. The Act would end the ban, boosting postal revenue.
Dial (844) 402-1001 to be connected to your senator’s office.
2nd Bi-Monthly Pool Champions are Roger Daniels and Michael Willard
Despite looking as if they were trying to lose at times, in fact they often times looked like they didn’t know how to play at all, they were able to easily win 8 out of 10 matches to take a 2nd Championship in a row.
Shari Flory and Shane McDonnell did not stand a chance and even their alternate player Ian was not match for the champions.
The next meeting is this Sunday, July 17, 2022 at 11:00 A.M. Everyone can attend in person or online. If you want to attend in person, please wear masks and we will be following the 6 feet social distancing guidelines. We will be discussing the regional convention. We also have some proposed Constitutional changes. Please show up so that you can voice your opinions on these changes and have your vote counted. You can be there in person or online. Hope everyone is well and we look forward to talking to everyone at the meeting.
Today as part of the convention, Roger Daniels was recognized for his strong commitment to everything the union stands for. He not only has done amazing things locally in our union, but has branched out to help other local unions as well as our State President, and our National Business Agents.
In order to recognize his achievements, he was awarded the John Kelly Award. This award is given to one outstanding individual each Convention for their outstanding performance and service.
Due to the diligent efforts of the Executive Board over the past several years, we have been able to use technology as well as other means to cut back spending in the local without any loss in representation of our membership.
Because of this, we would like to use some of our surplus to give back to the Members who support our efforts to make this local as strong and productive as possible. We are looking for ideas for what members would like in order to feel appreciated. It was suggested at the meeting to possibly do Shirts, Backpacks, lunch boxes, gift cards, etc. There are some issues that arise with the ideas of gift cards, but may still be an option.
If you have a suggestion of what would make you feel more appreciated, please let us know by emailing me at email@example.com put Appreciation in the Subject line.
Thanks you all. Without you, we would not be here.
That being said if there is anything we can do to improve your representation, please let us know.
