From its beginning in 1979, the Postal Labor Unions Summer School (PLUSS) has focused intently on the specific needs of union members in the U.S. Postal Service. At the heart of the curriculum is the grievance process, with the essential goal to foster skills and viewpoints that support the union and the labor movement. Although workshops are built around the steward’s role, PLUSS also makes room for concerns and events that affect the labor movement broadly. The Institute for Labor Studies and Research within the West Virginia University Extension Service - is proud to sponsor this exceptional educational opportunity. We urge all Locals in the American Postal Workers Union to take full advantage of what has proven to be a valuable learning experience offered under the umbrella of the Unions representing members in the United States Postal Service.
