National Rally To Save America's Postal Service
The U.S. Postmaster General is calling for a draconian restructuring plan that would result in the elimination of more than 100,000 postal workers' jobs and the shutdown of over 3,000 local post offices. The plan also guts the collective bargaining rights of postal employees by redefining their retirement and health care benefit packages.
Postal service union members are organizing rallies in every Congressional District in the country. The International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers (IAM) is joining with four postal employee unions to call for passage of non-union-busting H.R. 1351. The bill addresses the financial concerns of the post office in a responsible manner without eliminating jobs and services to the public. HR 1351 is NOT a bailout and would not cost taxpayers a single penny in taxes.
