(12/09/13) Richard H. Logan, National Business Agent for the Maintenance Craft, passed away on Dec. 5. He was 59. Logan was a member of the Providence (RI) Area Local and was an outspoken advocate for the rights of his co-workers. "We are deeply saddened by Rick's death," said APWU President Mark Dimondstein. "Our hearts go out to his family."
(12/03/13) In a ruling responding to a complaint filed by the APWU, the Postal Regulatory Commission (PRC) issued an order on Nov. 27 giving the APWU two weeks to submit additional evidence that the Postal Service is regularly violating its own mandatory service standards. The APWU complaint alleges that the Postal Service's failure to comply with its overnight delivery standards for first-class mail and periodicals is denying the APWU and its locals -- as customers -- as well as other mailers, the level of service required by USPS regulations.
