God Bless each one of you. As of this writing, April 10,the Branch has 22 Letter Carriers who tested positive for the Corona virus. Twenty-one members are recuperating at home and the other employee is hospitalized. One facility has been disproportionately affected with 16 Letter Carriers having been stricken by the disease.
Taking every precaution possible, a Branch Officer has been present in that facility every day from the very first reported positive testing.
In Philadelphia and our Associate Offices outside the City, the Branch has cooperated fully with the Postal Service to ensure social distancing is maintained.
Together, we have addressed every craft at each facility immediately after discovering an employee has been diagnosed with COVID We have assisted in securing materials necessary to keep our Members safe from the virus.
We have assisted in filling individual bottles of hand sanitizer, delivered masks, gloves, soap, wipes, and other essential items to facilities as needed. We are all in this together are not mere words. The sentiment could not ring truer. Yes, we have our differences with management but now is not the time for divisiveness. Hopefully, the parties will work together to resolve disputes collectively.
We must work together because lives are at risk. Communication and transparency are paramount to trust. Without it, we will all suffer. Finally, I have always been proud to be a Letter Carrier.
I have never been prouder of you. All of us have a role to play. We must take ownership of our own well-being and follow the CDC guidelines. Take your temperature every morning, if you are sick, please stay home. Maintain social distancing while at work. Remember, this virus has no boundaries! April 10, Don't Miss. All Events Archived.

Varallo - Wayne Carrier It doesn't happen too often; but every once in a while the Postal Service recognizes accomplishments by it's employees. Take for example this award that myself and fellow Carriers L to R Steve Lawrence from King Of Prussia, Steve Curry from Wayne, Kevin Cullen from King Of Prussia, and myself received for achieving the million mile club; not to be confused with the million mile high club just kiddingit's an award for basically driving 30 years without any chargeable accidents and they, the Postal Service, equate this to a million miles driven.
I should also mention that two other are not present; but also received the award. Congratulations to all of us! It was one hot day and we truly made the best out of it.
