CHARLOTTE, N.C. (FOX 46 CHARLOTTE)- Postal workers are protesting, saying they aren’t receiving basic worker’s rights, like being able to use their earned paid time off, being treated with respect, and being able to take sick days without being belittled for doing so.
The Charlotte-area American Postal Workers Union president says the constant beratement of these employees by managers at the post office is unacceptable.
“Many of our workers have been unable to find vaccinations. Management is intentionally not staffing our offices,” said Miriam Bell, President of the Charlotte Area American Postal Workers Union. Many of our workers are being forced to work 12-hour days, six days a week, which is in violation of our contract. Management is bullying employees. Ill and injured workers are being harassed.”
More than 50 postal workers came out to march Thursday. They walked from the American Postal Workers Union to the USPS distribution facility where they say many problems are occurring.
