As a surge in positive COVID-19 cases occurs nationally, contact tracing is critical to mitigating the spread of this insidious disease. The USPS at the District and below level appear to be less interested in protecting employees than ensuring they keep coming to work. This Union is committed to holding management accountable for their failure in this regard. If you have any concern of exposure in the workplace please reach out to your facility representative without delay.Linked here is the updated USPS Contact Tracing Program.
