With President Biden’s official signature on the bipartisan bill, Infrastructure Week is finally here.
The passage of the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act is a monumental political and legislative accomplishment. This is a $1.2 trillion investment in our infrastructure after decades of decline, and America’s workers are ready to rebuild our country.
In September, President Biden issued a directive to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) to issue an Emergency Temporary Standard (ETS) requiring all employers with 100+ employees to ensure their workers are vaccinated or tested weekly for COVID-19. Today, OSHA released the highly anticipated ETS. This ETS does apply to the Postal Service.
Having a quality health plan can be life-saving and the APWU Health Plan has over 60 years of quality service to America’s postal and federal workers and retirees, with two distinct plans: High Option and Consumer Driver Option. No matter which plan you choose, APWU Health Plan members are like family.
