February 20, 2015

The American Postal Workers Union (APWU) and the U.S. Postal Service began negotiations Thursday over a new contract, the first time the two have bargained in four and a half [KRC1] years. Heading into the negotiations, the USPS has a new postmaster general, Megan Brennan. Postal workers are calling not only for fair wages and benefits, but for longer and more convenient hours for customers. APWU has also endorsed a series of bold improvements, including postal banking, public notary services and the sale of licenses.
