USPS rural carriers seek to decertify union after most members see pay cuts

Ruralinfo Note: Sharing of this article does not imply that Ruralinfo.net agrees with decertification or does not agree.  I no longer have a dog in the fight, but I do believe rural carriers need all of the information. 

Several thousand Postal Service rural carriers say they’re in favor of decertifying their union, after USPS implemented a new pay system that led to significant pay cuts for two-thirds of the rural carrier workforce.

A grassroots network of rural carriers across the country is collecting signatures from their coworkers in the hopes of joining a new, non-postal union.

Rural carriers have until the end of the calendar year to gather signatures from a third of the total rural carrier workforce, but individuals leading the project said they have already collected about 20% of the necessary signatures.
