We strive to keep rural carriers updated in as many formats as possible.
We promote a wide range of rural carrier communities to let rural carriers engage with each other.
We hope to encourage healthy, respectful, debate and discussion.
We strongly promote the sharing of information and knowledge with all rural carriers(even those that cant make it to meetings and conventions)I have been a rural mail carrier since 1997, and a union member since 1999.
About Me – Creator of Ruralinfo.net
I DO believe the evaluated system is broken as it is now, but I am hoping the engineer study can help some. We shall see..
I do NOT hate the NRLCA, nor do I advocate decertification.
I DO believe the NRLCA should become more proactive in dealing with the USPS.
I DO believe the NRLCA should embrace the internet and all of the avenues available on it
I DO believe the NRLCA does NOT inform or engage the members as they should.
I DO realize the importance of the NRLCA and where we would be without them.
I am outspoken about my thoughts on the NRLCA and the USPS as I have every right to be.
I have previously held President and VP positions in my local union and was local steward in my office until 2010.
I have been a dues paying member of the NRLCA since 1999.
