    Statement Regarding the Public Meeting being rescheduled

    By Apwu133,
    “Today, members of the public and the media were able to witness what Postal Service workers across America face every day. A lack of respect for its employees, and now YOU, the public!  Local union officials have persistently reached out to the Postal Service in efforts to obtain information they were to release on January 23, 2024, to no avail.  Numerous grievances have been filed throughout this MPFR process due to the Postal Services inability to abide by their handbooks and manuals that govern such movement.  We will continue to work with our elected officials, the AFL-CIO and affiliate unions in the state to fight the Postal Service plans on moving your mail to Pittsburgh to be processed.  The public survey is still available to take, and we encourage everyone to do so.”

    Mail Processing Facility Review 
    Postponement of Public Meeting to be held re: Charleston WV P&DC

    On January 12, 2024, we announced that a Public Input Meeting for the Mail Processing Facility Review (MPFR) of Charleston P&DC was scheduled for January 30, 2024, to share the initial results of the study and to allow members of the local community to provide their feedback and perspectives on the Initial Findings of the MPFR.

    We are postponing the posting of our initial findings as further time is needed to finalize any specific improvements, we may undertake at the Charleston P&DC. This will result in the rescheduling of the Public Input Meeting within the next several weeks. 

    Once the Public Input Meeting has been rescheduled, a subsequent announcement will be made.

    Comments on the proposal from employees and the public will be considered before any decision is made. Comments may continue to be submitted at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/mpfr-charleston-wv.

    Thank you for your attention. We will keep you updated as we move through the facility review process and additional initiatives to modernize our postal network.

    APWU 133 members petition to get public meeting time change.

    APWU 133 members, 
     
    As you are aware, the public meeting is set for January 30 at 2:30PM in Charleston WV re: the Processing and Distribution facility.  The time of 2:30 in the afternoon was picked on purpose to limit the publics opposition to the proposed changes here, since most are at their respective place of employment.  Other facilities have been successful in moving the time, in opposition of the one presented by the Postal Service with the help of their elected officials and the public. 
     
    We have reached out to Senator's Manchin and Capito, Congresswoman Carol Miller, Gov Justice, Charleston Mayor Goodwin, South Charleston Mayor Mullins and the Kanawha Co Commision requesting they support our opposition of the time and request it to be changed.
     
    We have reached out to the Charleston Civic Center to ensure that the same meeting place the Postal Service has reserved for 2:30 is available at 6:00 that evening, and it is.  Changing this time will allow resident's the opportunity to voice their opinion on the matter, thus giving the Postal Service adequate information to make the appropriate decision, as they have stated since day one. 
     
    Please email:  sean.p.hargadon@usps.gov and request that the meeting time be changed to allow the public the opportunity to attend.
     
    With our members, the public and our elected officials, we can change the future of this facility.
     
    Thank you,
