The National APWU Website states:
"APWU President Mark Dimondstein reports that the national union leadership will make an announcement on Friday December 21, 2018 regarding the Collective Bargaining Agreement between the APWU and the USPS."
It was previously posted that the announcement was to be made on December 7, 2018. Why was there a two week delay? I do not believe that this delay would be to announce we are going to arbitration. So, the other reason would be that an agreement has been reached and that the Rank and File has to approve this agreement before presenting to the membership for ratification.
Some of the Rank and File Committee have posted on Facebook that they are back in Washington DC. So, in my opinion there must be concerns about this agreement, since this is the second time the Rank and File has visited DC in last two weeks.
In 2011 many APWU National and Local leaders lost their elections due to what many saw as a Concessionary Contract. I believe that if any National Officer or Rank and File Member votes in favor of a Concessionary Contract in 2018, they should suffer the same fate.
