Postal worker's hands touchinging hands

The mediation process between the Postal Service and the American Postal Workers Union (APWU) has concluded.

USPS and the union will move forward with interest arbitration.

“The Postal Service is prepared to put on a strong economic and operational case in interest arbitration to justify its bargaining proposals and achieve an agreement that is fair to APWU employees and our customers,” said Labor Relations Vice President Doug Tulino.

The Postal Service will not comment on the substance of negotiations while the dispute resolution process is ongoing.
