It also will mark the first labor negotiations for new Postmaster General Megan Brennan. Along with issues such as fair wages and benefits, the APWU will be proposing bold improvements in customer services, such as postal banking, the sale of licenses, and the addition of public notary services, along with a proposal for longer and more convenient hours for customers to allow USPS to capture a greater share of the growing ecommerce market. The APWU is not alone in its desire to see the Postal Service expand services and reverse many of the destructive practices of former Postmaster General Patrick Donahoe.
