November Update - From the Local President
Peak season is upon us once again. In the past this has meant a time of operational chaos resulting from an overwhelming volume which required everyone to go above and beyond to process the Mail. Although currently, I’m not sure whether the chaos of peak season will be any different from the chaos which ensues daily. Indeed, operational chaos resulting from managerial ineptitude has become the order of the day 365 days a year. Will anyone even notice a difference during peak season?
October Update - From the Local President
The Postmaster General’s 10-Year Plan continues to be implemented in more locations across the country. This implementation involves a redesignation of facilities and the reconfiguring of operations within these facilities to supposedly create more efficiency throughout the Postal network. Current Network Distributions Centers are being converted into a Regional Processing and Distribution Center (RPDC), while current Processing and Distribution Centers are being converted into a Local Processing Center (LPC) or some other type of facility.
September Update - From the Local President
The Local Union is forever engaged in two extremely broad activities. Addressing the issues which impact the Members on a day-to-day basis, that is to say contract administration, and looking down the road to plan for the future. The question of where your Local Union is going to be a year from now, five years from now, or ten years from now, is continually being considered by the Officers of the Local Executive Board and Local Union Council. While no one can predict with certainty what the future may bring, we can look at all the possibilities and evaluate what outcomes may be more likely or less likely. As time passes and as the evaluation continues, the likeliness of potential outcomes change.
