As the coronavirus pandemic unfolds, APWU leaders are in constant discussion with USPS management, demanding temporary leave policies, telework provisions where possible, and better safety policies, supplies, and equipment. This page is a resource for members to find information on Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19).


Our union contract gives us rights and protections, but it’s up to us to use them. If you are concerned that our safety is being put at risk:

  • Talk to your shop stewards or local officers about how you can work together to get safety improvements in your work location.
  • Request Form 1767 from your supervisor to report unsafe working practices. (you can find out more about how to use Form 1767 here.)
  • Make sure you know your rights. Review the resources on this page for information on new MoUs, MMOs and other important documents.
  • The Employee Assistance Program (EAP) offers counseling and referrals and available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Find out more at 1-800-EAP4YOU (TTY: 877-492-7341), or at
