Yesterday, thousands of postal workers and activists rallied in nearly 500 locations across the country to send a loud and clear message to Congress: Save our services! Save America’s Postal Services!
Purporting the myth and half-truths of a USPS financial crisis, some members of Congress are proposing eliminating 120,000 good jobs, closing thousands of post offices, eliminating Saturday mail service and closing mail processing facilities.
H.R. 1351, introduced by Rep. Stephen Lynch (D-MA), would allow the USPS to use the billions of dollars in pension overpayments to meet its financial obligations. It would address the cause of the USPS financial crisis without cutting pay, reducing benefits, eliminating collective bargaining rights, or slashing service. Call and write your congressional representatives today. Ask your representatives to save the jobs and the vital services working families need for economic recovery. Pass HR 1351!
