  1. If I take an early out from USPS, as a dues paying member of the APWU, will I be able to receive an annuity or lump sum payout from the APWU Retirement Fund for its members?

  2. With the revenue loss. We now carry GPS devices to track our every move here in Philly. It’s all beginning to come full circle. LOOK FOR ANOTHER LINE OF WORK in another country.

  3. Workhours increased TO sply; volume increased. revenue increased loss was only $1.7 billion compared to $4.5 billion SPLY. Craft employees increased efficieny which improved bottomline cost factor. Eliminating 6 day street delivery to 5 day street delivery would create a positive bottomline. Eliminating and consolidating once rural community officies but due to changing demographics are now
    suburban community officies many within 6-7 mile radius of each other with a high level office serving the areas around these officies. Many of these small officies have no delivery and only provide retail and box service with nearby national drug and groceries stores selling postage stamps and money orders.
    Many of these wasted cost officies that are non essential in providing postal services have salaries exceeding $60,000 depending on length of service.
    Politicans that support keeping the USPS operating on a fiscial clift need to face reality and support restructing from headquarters to level 11 officies that are a wasted cost as their existence has outlived their need in the advanced communication technology in the 21st century.

  4. I just retired and I’m getting less sleep per day then when I worked. Now I’m only sleeping 8 hrs a day. Before I was sleeping 8 hrs at home and 4 at work. Now I ask you is that fair?
