Pensacola Area Local News & Events

Here's is the email message John Olive sent this morning, to all stewards and officers. Please contact John with any questions or comments regarding this information.

This morning the Postal Service has informed me that our Workers' Records are a victim of a cyber attack. Apparently important records such as social security numbers, bank draft information, hire dates, some bank information, rates of pay, etc. have been hacked from January to August.

I will have more information soon. The Postal Service will have stand-up talks this morning with, hopefully, much more information and maybe a movie. I believe they will be offering Credit Monitoring and other ideas with which to protect ourselves from this incident. Please notify me if your unit/section/branch or installation does not receive a stand-up talk today.

October 1, 2014
Sisters and Brothers, welcome in advance to Pensacola Beach for what I'm sure will be an
informative, rewarding and entertaining three days of our Fall Seminar.
As part of our planned activities we have secured a booth at the Pensacola Interstate Fair (which
coincidentally coincides with our meeting) with which to further our Staples boycott. We shall
also publicize our longstanding struggle against Postal consolidation and we have invited other
unions to join us.
We plan to have fun, too. Discounted tickets for the Pensacola Interstate Fair for the events and
attractions are available. Advance discount tickets are half off admission ($6) and wristbands
are $5 off ($15 Monday thru Thursday, $20 for weekend). I'm certainly looking forward to you
joining us in the evenings as your time allows. Please notify Jim DeMauro, Jovita Olive or me
with your orders and payments for the advance discounted tickets. The deadline is October
17th.
We have listed some links below which should give you more information about the Pensacola
area, including the information on Interstate Fair (entertainment, the discounted tickets, etc.)
Again, I look forward to seeing you and yours October 24-26. Together we shall enjoy a seminar
that is both productive and enjoyable. I remain

Yours in Union Solidarity,
John S. Olive

Web News Article #: 219-2014 Few postal workers were surprised by a recent Gallup Poll that found that Americans rate the Postal Service highest among 13 government agencies – after all, the USPS routinely ranks at the top of such surveys. But many people were surprised to learn that young people gave the Postal Service the highest rating: 81 percent of 18-29 year olds gave the USPS “excellent or good” marks. “The most curious finding in the poll is who likes USPS most,” the National Journal observed in an article about the survey.

November 21, 2014 Sen. Tom Harkin (D-IA) is retiring after 40 years of dedicated public service, including the championing of policies and legislation benefiting Social Security and Medicare recipients and their families. One of those pieces of legislation was the Strengthening Social Security Act (S.567), designed to immediately increase current benefits by about $800 annually, improve Cost of Living Adjustments (COLAs) and ensure the program’s future to make retirement more secure for our children and grandchildren, too. To thank Sen. Harkin for his years of service - and pledge to support the Alliance in doing all you...
