The U.S. Postal Service hit the headlines this week as a management stand up talk was given to all workers with outrageous plans to slow down mail/package sorting and delivery. These actions of the new PMG undermine our mission of service to the people of the United States and will drive away more business, all in the name of “cost savings.”
Rather than cutting service, the most immediate solution to the COVID related financial crisis must come from congress. That’s why I’m asking you to join our #SaveThePostOffice call-in day of action on Thursday, July 23.

Postal workers have stepped up as heroes during this challenging and dangerous time —keeping the country, families and businesses connected.
Private corporations have received billions of dollars in support from Congress, yet Congress and the Administration has yet to act when it comes to support for the public Postal Service.
The House of Representatives voted to provide $25 billion in COVID related postal financial assistance in the HEROES Act, which included many positive provisions for working people. It is now in the hands of the Senate to act. Just last week S 4174 was introduced as a stand-alone bill in the Senate with a similar $25 billion of postal financial relief.
This coming week, the Senate returns from recess to take up “stimulus” legislation. That’s why they need to hear from every one of us. That’s why I’m asking you to make a call to both your senators on July 23rd and insist on the $25 billion of emergency COVID relief for the Postal Service.
Sign up here to participate in the call-in day of action.
Sign up to join the call-in day and make sure your friends, family and your union family have signed up too.
Let our voices be heard loud and clear! Our public Postal Service and jobs depend on it!
