Community Input Meeting

I am so proud to be a part of this Union and the Community. The Meeting last night was overflowing with the support. The room was filled with passionate speakers. My Co-workers did an amazing job of showing their loyalty to the Community and to the Postal Service. Although we don’t like changes that will disrupt service, we deeply care about our customers and getting their mail to them safely and without delays.

Thanks to those who attended. And for those who spoke, I was amazed by your passion. It takes a lot to stand up and you all did an amazing job!!!

The Rally is over. The fight is just beginning!!!

We had a great turnout at the Rally today. I want to thank everyone who took time out of their busy schedules. We had a lot of Postal Workers, Retirees, Family and Friends that came out to educate the public of the possible concerns we have with mail processing operations potentially moving to Denver.

We had tons of people stop by to discuss their opinions sign petitions and show their support. We also had several representatives from the media join us and ask us about our concerns.

Press Release 2/9/2024

KKCO had a story today concerning the Processing Plant changes. They claim that the “Post Offices and Delivery Services won’t be effected.” Although this may be true, the big problem with any plans to move mail processing will result in delays in transportation. Transferring mail 300 miles to to process the mail and having to deal with traffic, mountains, canyons, and construction will delay the mail. We believe that the public deserves better service, not delays.

Study Concluded!!!

The Postal Service has scheduled a Community Meeting on February 22nd at 3:00 PM to share the results of their mail processing study and gather feedback.

This meeting provides an opportunity for our community to share concerns about how the proposed changes could impact mail delivery timelines. We encourage local residents to attend and make their voices heard.

The meeting details will be held at University Center at the Colorado Mesa University campus.

Your input is appreciated. These changes could affect the entire community, so it is important USPS hears from local customers.

Please consider attending this event if you have thoughts to share about maintaining timely mail service in our area. We hope to see concerned community members there.

By sharing this event, we can ensure USPS gets helpful feedback from across Western Colorado.

Furthermore, we urge community members to make their voices heard by taking this Survey and providing thoughtful feedback.

July 2023 Meeting Notes

Great Meeting. Thanks for everyone who was able to come. We had a special guest, National Vice President Debby Szeredy came and talked with us about current Postal Issues. It is always great to be able to have a National Officer take time from their day to join us. Debby Szeredy is a wealth of knowledge and shows that our National Officers are here to support us in our endeavours.

There was a bit of talk about our latest Conferences, the State Convention in Pueblo and the Regional Convention in Albuquerque New Mexico. Both had lots of training opportunities. At the Regional Convention, our very own Roger Daniels and Shane McDonnell taught a course on TACs grievances. Going forward we are working on forcing management to comply with the contract and treat all TACs duties as Bargaining Unit work. At the Regional Convention, we had training on Hostile Work Environments and Excessing events. Reach out to us if you have a monster causing issues in your office.

We would like to update the Bulletin Boards in all of our offices. Please let us know if you can help.

This is a small sampling of what happened at the Meeting. Please try to make the Next one in September. and thanks again to everyone who took time out of their day to join us.
