Postal Workers delivering message with Day of Action June 14


APWU_Round_LOGOThe American Postal Workers are asking union brothers and sisters to help them deliver a message to the U.S. Postal Service that employee safety should come ahead of system throughput.

Fred Wolfmeyer, president of St. Louis Gateway Local 8 of the American Postal Workers Union, said the Postal Service is currently staffing automation machines, designed to be staffed with two people, with only one postal worker, thus delaying the mail and putting employees at risk of serious injury.

The Postal Workers are planning a Day of Action on Flag Day, Tuesday, June 14, from noon to 1 p.m. in front of the Main Post Office at 1720 Market St. in downtown St. Louis.

Speaking to delegates at the recent meeting of the Greater St. Louis Labor Council, Wolfmeyer said: “Help us tell the American people that the Postal Service has no regard for employee safety of the timely processing and delivery of America’s mail.

“Automation machines are to be staffed with two people and the Postal Service consistently ignores this requirement and staffs with only one person.”

You can help hold the Postal Service accountable by turning out to deliver a message with Postal Workers on the Day of Action.
