APWU Executive Board Endorses Joe Biden for President

The American Postal Workers Union’s National Executive Board has voted to endorse Joe Biden for President of the United States. In their decision, the Board recognized his record of advancing the cause of unions, his support for the public Postal Service, postal workers, and his opposition to postal privatization.

As our country has confronted the pandemic, postal workers have heroically highlighted once again the importance of an affordable, universal and public Postal Service. Even as we have ensured that essential medicines, supplies and mail reached every address, serving the people at a time of incredible need, the Postal Service faces the prospect of closure. Without an immediate infusion of cash from Congress and the White House, the Postal Service will likely run out of money by fall due to COVID-related revenue losses.

Joe Biden recognized the stakes of this moment in a recent letter to the National Executive Board when he stated “This crisis makes clear: the USPS doesn’t just perform the integral task of offering mailing and shipping services in accordance with its Universal Service Obligation, it is also often the social and economic lifeline to rural and lower-income communities across the nation. Our support for the Postal Service must match the commitment that its workers bring to serving our communities….I will continue to protect the Postal Service from all attempts at privatization.”

Mail- in = unlimited FRAUD, no mistake about it !

Abolish Unions completely.

Yeah , cause worker protections and fair representation sucks!

No, unions should be able working conditions, fair wages and respect from employers ONLY. So we still need them to do their jobs but I am a FIRM believer in NOT allowing them to be political! To many who are forced to pay their dues are not represented and the power of the big money is not a good thing to wield in a political field. And last if any union is taking in that much money so they have so much to “play” around with then they are taking way to much from the pockets of the working man.… Read more »

Thank you. Now we don’t have to use mail in ballots. You just created a major conflict of interest.
