This World Post Day, UNI Global Union has released a new guide for postal unions: “The Role of Unions in a Crisis: Lessons Learned from #COVID-19.”

The guide, produced by UNI Post&Logistics, highlights cases of best practice during the COVID-19 pandemic and identifies ways unions can maintain USPs’ crucial role in society and secure postal workers’ jobs.

It aims to help unions anticipate and mitigate threats to postal services and worker health and safety when disasters hit – whether on a local, regional or national level. The goal is to reinforce the post as an essential actor at a time of crisis – and in its aftermath – and to equip unions with the tools to come out stronger.

It is available below in English, French, German, Japanese and Spanish.
