Pandemic: USPS, APWU agree to expand paid leave for PSEs; dependent care leave for childcare

March 18, 2020

Our first priority during the ongoing coronavirus outbreak has been ensuring the health and safety of our members and that of the public.

To that end, today the union signed two memoranda of understanding with the Postal Service temporarily expanding paid leave for PSEs and expanding the use of dependent care leave for postal employees with unexpected childcare needs as a result of the pandemic.

Members should consult the attached memoranda and disseminate among their states and locals.
