Hay union why are you not standing up and fighting this. We the workers( you know the ones that pay you to represent us) demand our money on the next paycheck. I wish I could pick and chose to pay my dues based on your performance. You would get **** done then I bet

This is not right!!! The contract was ratified in March. It takes four months to take effect on the pay and we just sit her and let it happen. Then union doesn’t seem to really care about us but expect there union dues EVERY CHECK. And if your owe the PO money it’s taking out the next check. Not to mention the PO management breaks the contract all the time with nothing done to them for doing it. I think it’s way past do far the workers to break then contract and walk out I bet shit gets right away… Read more »

They don’t care about us. Just if they can go golfing and partying why we work 10-12 hour days delivering their stuff.

Mass walk out is needed


So another way of saying, keep waiting….it’ll be a while. The level of disarray at the post office is far exceeding that of my experiences at the VA hospitals.

Might take 3 months or so is a complete joke. No cola for 18 months now and inflation highest in 40 years. Union is awful, at this rate they will take it on to November cola

Yeah, they need to get a move on; we have another COLA coming in July.

You know what step we are on. It can’t be that hard via form 50 to just pay us correctly. I will give you it would take awhile to calculate bay pay for every carrier. Total bs if they can’t pay us correctly for 3 months after a signed contract. More back pay is not the issue. Cost of living has gone up. My pay should go up. Not wait for a year to get back pay.

Not that complex to me. I can run a calculator.
