  1. Don’t you think that both parties are just waiting to see what Arbitrator Goldberg does with the APWU contract to see if they would be better off settling jointly or going to arbitration themselves?

  2. Why all the negativity about a routine extension of negotiation time? The shocking thing would have been if the parties couldn’t even agree to keep talking. This is good news that the negotiations are continuing. Good work, unions!

  3. Thanks miss postmaster. .a former letter-carrier too!!….when was the last time you did a hard days work! ….

  4. after they do their circle jerk dance for the sheeple, you will see smoke and mirrors and shadows on the wall for your 1%! oh don’t look over there at the mismgt bonus money and union mgt kickback scam. Uncle Joe Stalin was right about the useful idiots…..now go vote for a DemonKKKat…..they will save the lumpin proletariat! just look at all barry from honolulu did for you lol. this dump needs the Teamsters and a strike!

  5. Same strategy as last time that didn’t work, keep extending negotiations for months until management finally calls an impasse and it moves on to arbitration.
