    Pandemic: APWU Signs Leave Adjustments with USPS + Q and A s

    Our first priority during the ongoing coronavirus outbreak has been ensuring the health and safety of

    our members and that of the public. To that end, today the union signed two memoranda of understanding

    with the Postal Service temporarily expanding paid leave for PSEs and expanding the use of dependent care

    leave for postal employees with unexpected childcare needs as a result of the pandemic.

    Members should consult the attached memoranda and disseminate among their states and locals.

    Message from APWU President Mark Dimondstein Sister and Brothers,   In the last 24 hours, four additional postal employees have tested positive for the Coronavirus, bringing to five the total confirmed cases of active postal employees.

    APWU Health Plan to cover Coranvirus Tests.


    The APWU Health Plan is closely monitoring the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. The cost of testing is a rising concern among postal and federal employees and retirees.

    APWU Health Plan members will have access to coronavirus testing, as prescribed by a health care professional, and the Health Plan will waive the deductible and coinsurance. Containing the outbreak is the Health Plan’s number one priority.

    Testing is available at LabCorp and Quest Diagnostics.

    Any individual who suspects they may have been exposed to the coronavirus or is exhibiting symptoms should consult with their health care professional to make the appropriate testing recommendation, in line with CDC guidelines.

    To lessen your risk of exposure, members should use your telehealth options. As a reminder, virtual visits are a great option when you need to see a doctor without leaving home. With a virtual visit, you can see and talk to a doctor from your phone, tablet, or computer—24 hours a day, 7 days a week. In addition to providing a consultation and diagnosis, doctors can send a prescription to your local pharmacy.
