Welcome to the Oregon Rural Letter Carriers’ website.  The purpose of this site is to keep carriers informed about upcoming events and provide any contact information you might need.

PERF exists to help active and retired postal employees, both management and craft, whose home, as a result of a major natural disaster was completely destroyed or left uninhabitable--displacing the postal employee and their family for an extended period of time. The Fund provides small relief grants to assist qualifying victims of such circumstances re-establish residence and to help replenish basic necessities in the aftermath of a devastating loss. If you have been a victim of a major disaster and meet the criteria described above or would like to donate to the fund, we urge you to visit the PERF website (www.postalrelief.com) for assistance and information.

National Convention Canceled



After considerable discussion, extensive research, consultation with numerous government officials and public health experts, and input from state presidents and their boards, the National Board has decided that in order to best protect the safety and health of our craft and our loved ones, the most prudent course of action is to cancel the 2020 National Convention.  Please see the National website for more information

Important Message from DR Monte Hartshorn Please Help!

I want all rural carriers to be aware that management should be providing masks, gloves, hand sanitizer, and disinfecting wipes. The hand sanitizer should be in a small bottle that should be taken with us on the route.  When the bottle gets low, it should be refilled from the office supply.  Each office should have disinfecting wipes or a cleaning station where we can use some cloth rags and a bleach solution to wipe down the vehicle that we will be using on the route.  

Please immediately notify your assigned steward if any of these items are missing or not available.  We must have these items, and if they are not provided we will notify the District office.  We are asking everyone to be our eyes on this matter.
