USPS Shipping Equity Act

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.

Pool Champion

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.

Pool Champion

1st Bi-Monthly Pool Champions are Roger Daniels and Michael Willard

You both have proven your worth by using your skills such as ”tappy tappy” to devour all competition that got in their way.

Congratulations to Shari Flory and Shane McDonnell despite being the team with the largest fan base (Jenny) they over thought their shots in the final round .

Member Appreciation

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 shanemcdonnell77@hotmail.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.

Hazmat Questions and Discipline

It has been brought to our attention that employees are being disciplined and emergency placed for answering the “Hazmat” question for the customer while on the window.

A button is available to Clerks to answer the question if the customer is not able to do so. It is our belief that if management does not want the employees to ever use that option, the option should be removed from the software.

If you receive discipline or are emergency placed for answering the Hazmat for a customer, contact your Union Steward or other Union Official immediately.
