This Blog is intended to share information between workers on the impact of the employers' postal transformation program. We promote a Union perspective and encourage contributions that subscribe to that direction.

With the new machinery in place, those of us at the main plant are even more determined to retain our sick leave - as is -it is the #1 priority. I have worked for CPC for many years now with no injuries. Since the working on the new machines for the last several months - I now have foot & leg problems (no anti-fatigue mats) & lower back problems (those bottom stackers were made for the seven dwarfs !!!)
Who knew postal transformation meant pick your option - unemployed - modified - disabled - early retirement. Health & Safety there is at an all time low. Be aggressive - Be persistent - make sure you get your rotation of duties - No excuses - & above all - all injuries MUST be reported. Mgmt likes to brag that the # of reported injuries has decreased - but I remind them - REPORTED injuries - not ACTUAL injuries - employees (especially the new ones) are being intimidated into "taking it on the chin" for fear of reprisals & harassment.
