Matt Davis Remembered

Matt taking the mic

The WCAL is sorry to announce that our coworker, our friend and our Union Brother, Matt Davis passed away on November 24, 2018.

The reason for the delay in notice was out of respect for the family and the wishes of some.  This has been an overwhelming last couple days for everyone and that has made it hard to get this message of notice out. Matt will be forever missed by all, and never forgotten.

When thoughts of Matt come about,  think of his smile, dedication to the Union, and his love for all of us. Matt is, was and will forever be a truly beautiful person and a true loss to us all.

The struggles in life are hard and no one should have to go through them alone.  The WCAL600 is a family and we’re all here for one another, so please reach out if you ever need help.  Our solidarity is what makes our Union great and the friendships and family that come along with it is what makes it all worth it.  So with heavy hearts in this time of loss know that your Union stands strong because we stand together.

If anyone you now is struggling with depression of mental illness please know that there is help out there.

Reach out and let someone know.

Our deepest condolences

WCAL600

Privatizers – those who want to sell the public postal service to private corporations – are hard at work. Together we can stop them in their tracks.

Get ready to hit the streets with our sister postal unions, family, friends, and community allies to Save Our Service. Rallies will take place at many Congressional offices throughout the country.  In Grand Junction, we are meeting at the Post Office on 4th and Rood from Noon to 1.

Let us know that you will be here by clicking HERE.
