Local 304 is a branch of the National Postal Mail Handlers Union
As proof of how paranoid and controlling the last administration was, we have learned that union funds were used to install programs in the computers at Headquarters that would allow them to see everything typed on any computer other than their own, throughout the Headquarters building, so that they can control and spy on what the users of these computers were doing. They also had their computers set-up to where they can view the camera's they had installed inside the Headquarters building from their homes! They also went through the trouble of clearing ALL of the computers they used of ALL information that was on them!
I have had a few people ask me about when the Local will offer scholarships to high school seniors or GED recipients, as we have done in the past. In the past, we have awarded as many as 18 scholarships ($500 each) a year, providing the applicants met all qualifications. The Executive Board will be meeting within the next few weeks to discuss this program and to set up when the applications will be available, the deadline for applications and to ensure that applications for the scholarships and all information regarding the scholarships is made available as soon as possible. I will inform you as soon as I know all of this information. I will tell you that the scholarship applications will also be available on this website, in a .pdf format, so that you may either download and fill the form out, or you can just fill-out the form online and mail it in, with the other required information. It will be formatted to allow you to type right on the form.
President Hegarty addressed the members on the following issues: VERA- At this time there is no VERA planned for any crafts. The PMG also said as much last week.
We have had requests to put a retirement calculator on this website, and we have found a site that is self-explanatory, and gives you the option to calculate your retirement whether you are a CSRS or FERS employee. It also allows you to calculate your TSP retirement. Look to the left on this page to the sidebar, and click on the retirement picture to go to this site.
Recently I added a photo archive to the website, which you can find on the sidebar. Today, I added a link to the USPS news page to the sidebar as well. I am trying to make this website a portal for news and information the user want to see all in one package. If you have an suggestions please let me know (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Despite having to deal with problems from the old administration, to include the financial state they left this union in and other problems. The current administration is moving on. The current administration is setting up shop steward training, advanced shop steward training and RI-399 training, which should be scheduled within the next few weeks for all shop stewards who need the training. This type of training has not been conducted in at least three years!
