Postal employees recovering from Oklahoma tornado: The devastating tornado that struck outside Oklahoma City on May 20, killed at least 24 people, including one member of the APWU. NALC Region 4 Regional Administrative Assistant Dan Versluis reports that, according to Branch 458 in Oklahoma City, the Moore station took an indirect hit. It appears that all carriers’ personal vehicles in the Moore Post Office parking lot were destroyed. Several carriers suffered damage to, or total loss of, their homes but there are no reports of injury or loss of life involving carriers. “When a storm like this hits, we must match its ferocity with our own generosity,” NALC President Fredric Rolando said. “Please contribute to the Postal Employees’ Relief Fund, to help our brothers, sisters and co-workers rebuild after this tragedy.” Click here for PERF’s official website.
