****GRAND JUNCTION CLERK CRAFT NOTICE***
There will be no posting this round.
Jobs will show up on ejob bidding, but management is cancelling the posting because it is all messed up. None of the jobs will be awarded. If anyone does bid a job, they aren’t going to get it awarded.
People should not pay attention to anything the online job slot information says because it isn’t right.
This message was sent by Lynn Morgan who is working with Denver to get the jobs aligned correctly.
In the current political climate, our politicians are constantly trying to cut the rights of Postal and other Federal workers. From attempting to cut Saturday delivery to passing budgets that cut benefits to Postal workers, without our collective voices being heard we will not be able to resist these cuts.
For these reasons, I recommend that all employees, friends and family members join the APWU e-Team. By signing up for the e-Team, you will get notices by e-mail whenever action is needed to support or reject a bill. If we all stand together, we can make a difference and continue to earn the living wages we all deserve.
Please go to the APWU e-Team site and sign up now.
