MELVILLE, NY — Members of the American Postal Workers Union are set to picket the U.S. Postal Service’s Melville office on Wednesday after witnesses said a local worker was the target of an attempted attack, according to the union.
The protesters plan to demand accountability for a district labor relations specialist from the USPS NY-2 District after she was accused of trying to attack a postal worker May 5 in front of witnesses, the union stated in a news release. The union said she used language that was “prejudicial and unacceptable in the modern workplace.”
“It is significant that the assailant works in labor relations where her primary role is to resolve disputes, rather than create them,” the union wrote.
The postal service’s area and district management did not take disciplinary action against the manager, the union said.
