It has been a struggle during this round of negotiations to build any kind of momentum.
We may have finally managed to get things moving. We have an agreement on Access to Information for letter carrier routes and restructures.
We have been fighting to achieve access to the information and the software the employer uses to build letter carrier routes for ten years. It was sometime in 2008 that the employer started using Georoute and AIM (Address Information Management System) to build letter carrier routes. Since that time, we have not had the ability to properly and accurately verify the data used to build the routes. That struggle has ended.
