Local 323 Launches Organizing Drive!
The Local Union is currently conducting an organizing drive to recruit Mail Handlers and MHAs who do not belong to the Union. We are requesting the help of every Member to enroll non-members. A list of Mail Handlers and MHA’s who are not Members of the Union is available from your Steward. An 1187 form to sign them up is available at your Branch office and on this website. Use this form to sign up the non-member and provide the completed form to your Union Representative.
The Local Executive Board has adopted a proposal which provides an additional $75.00 for each non-member enrolled in the Union. This is in addition to the $25.00 already provided for in the Bylaws of Local 323. Consequently, any current Member signing up a non-member will receive a check in the amount of $100.00 for each non-member they enroll. This will continue for the duration of the organizing drive.
Local 323 is preparing for a challenging future with the Postmaster General’s 10-Year Plan looming on our horizon. Management has decided that a reconfiguration of the Postal Service is necessary, and the Union must be ready to protect the rights of Mail Handlers when this happens. Work floor management knows there are Mail Handlers who don’t belong to the Union. They like this division; some even try to use it against us. Quite frankly, we’d like to remove this tool from management’s toolbox.
It’s time for all Mail Handlers to leave the past behind and move forward together. The time to start preparing for the future is now, and we can present a stronger and more effective front with everyone as a Member of the Union.
