The global trends in the Postal Industry reveals a poor quality of service, decline in the volume of mail traffic and dwindling revenue profile.

In Nigerian Post these challenges are very glaring and as a result this backdrop. The President - Comrade D. O. Apeh and a cross section of his Executive embarked on an advocacy tour of all chapters in the North-West, North-East, South-South, South-East, North-Central, South-West and Lagos zone. This tour took about five (5) weeks consecutively.

The union in the course of the tour called on all its members to face these challenges squarely by having a change in their attitude to work. They should do the right thing, at the right time and in the right place. Those in Supervisory positions must discharge their duties properly. The union recorded all peculiar challenges with a view to forwarding a report of their findings to Management and the issues raised will form the major part of the agenda for this quarter's Labour/Management meeting.

Prominent among the issues for the agenda are:

  • training of an untrained army of staff
  • provision of infrastuctural facilities, mainly the logistics as the vehicles and motorcycles in use are of low quality and very bad
  • the District Postal Managers should be empowered directly for all the operational transactions
  • Drivers' Non-Accident Bonus should be paid to them as and at when due
  • Security allowance and overtime be paid timely

At the end of the tour, a Central Working Committee (CWC) meeting was held. Compilation of the report is on-going to be forwarded to the Management.

Members felt free, expressed themselves, highlighted their challenges and barriers against high productivity that is expected of them.
