On Tuesday, Feb. 25, postal workers and the communities we serve are standing up for our public Postal Service. It’s time to protect America’s most cherished institution.
The House of Representatives has overwhelmingly passed the USPS Fairness Act. Now let’s get it through the Senate. Members of the American Postal Workers Union (APWU) are telling our Senators to pass the Senate companion bill, S.2965. The Labor Network for Sustainability stands in solidarity.
In 2006, Congress saddled our public Postal Service with an unfair and unsustainable burden of pre-funding retiree health care benefits for the next 75 years! That means paying now for USPS workers who aren’t even born yet.
The USPS Fairness Act will remove the unfair burden. By repealing the prefunding mandate, the Postal Service would then be able to focus on investing and innovating services in order to better meet its mission to service every American household and business.
