We’re All in This Together
By Stan Johnson
Member of Spokane, WA, Branch 60 and Retired Postmaster of Airway Heights
You have come through a year filled with so many challenges. How reassuring it’s been to know the United States Postal Service can count on all of you.
At a time like this, we all need to be there for each other. Please know that I’m here for you anytime. Take care of yourself, your friends and your family.
We’re all in this together. If there is anything we can do to help you get through these challenging times, please let your NAPS family know. Working your days-off and delivering routes or parcels ordinarily would be a once-in-awhile thing, but, now, it’s almost a daily part of your jobs.
Stay positive and, most importantly, get paid for your hours. Don’t let the stress of the job ruin your family life. Call your post office buddy and vent to them. Sometimes you just need to blow off some stream to regain focus.
I know you put in many long hours in order to keep things running smoothly. Be in touch with your manager if things are too much for you to handle; they might have a solution. Never falsify reports or change clock rings. If you are unable to deliver all the mail, report as such.
Be sure to thank your employees. Most of them are working hard and stressed, as well. The same goes for the customers we serve. I know the USPS would not have been able to get it done without your dedication.
Allow me to extend my personal and genuine appreciation to every one of you for your valuable contributions to the USPS and NAPS. Best wishes and happiness to you and your family as we all look forward to a successful and, hopefully, COVID-diminished 2022.
Once again, thank you.
