Postal Uniforms News

Finally: The Polo Shirt
Posted August 15, 2006

"Several APWU members made fashion statements at the Clerk Craft Conference, modeling new polo shirts that window clerks will be able to wear starting on Nov. 18.

The long- and short-sleeved shirts have been the subject of long and short discussions, tests, and reviews since 2003. Vendors will begin taking orders on these shirts early in October. One of the last issues to be resolved grants retail clerks the right to wear this style any day of the week that the window is open.

They can be purchased using the Sales and Service Associate uniform allowance. The cost is expected to be in the $30-$35 range." (Source: APWU)
