Update: Say "No" to the Postal Pulse


Update: The Postal Services is re-administering the Postal Pulse survey from June 28 - July 27, 2023. Continue to stay united and do not let management take your Postal Pulse!

Starting April 25 through May 26 June 28 through July 27,2023, the USPS is pushing its annual Postal Pulse Survey. The APWU leadership urges you to not let the Postal Service take your Pulse! APWU is set to begin contract negotiations with the Postal Service in 2024. In the past, management has used surveys as a weapon against us in negotiations, while not producing any real positive change for employees at the Postal Service.

The survey will arrive in mailboxes and via email, sent by Gallup. Nowhere in this survey is there a disclaimer that it is voluntary. Regardless of pressure from supervisors or managers, letter correspondence, excessive emails, or other tactics, employees are not required to participate in this survey. APWU urges you to not participate in the Postal Pulse.

We have a negotiated grievance process, a negotiated labor-management cooperation process and national negotiations to address workplace issues. As we address the toxic work environment at the USPS, it is more important than ever that we deny management an opportunity to present an inaccurate picture of the state of our workplaces.

On April 28, we kicked off our public campaign to bring awareness to the unsafe and toxic workplaces that our members face, and demand postal management to be held accountable. The membership has mobilized nationwide to demand dignity and respect, and continues to take solidarity actions such as recording a video, wearing a sticker, or taking APWU’s clearly marked workplace environment survey – look out for the union logo.

Stay united, and don’t be fooled by management’s tricks created to divide us. Over years of struggle, we’ve won a negotiated grievance process, a labor-management cooperation process and national negotiations to address workplace issues. These are the proper channels for management to seek input from postal workers, not a management survey put together without any input from the APWU or the other postal unions.
