December 2015 Update
Are your favorite coworkers starting to get under your skin? Does it seem that there’s no rhyme or reason to holiday operations? Are you working 12 hours a day and sleeping 12 hours a day? If so, you might be experiencing December at the post office.
Certainly, my phone has been ringing off the hook; and, I can hear the stress in the voices of the Members and Representatives with whom I’ve spoken. We must remind ourselves that this comes with the territory and take the month of December with a grain of salt. As the holiday volume subsides thing will return to normal and we can breathe a sigh of relief.
2016 will be a year of much activity. Including the NPMHU National Convention, the LIUNA Convention, and of course, the negotiations over the terms of the 2016 National Agreement. We remain steadfast in our resolve and prepared for a successful future.
Happy Holidays to all!
