New postmaster general could signal big changes to postal service

WASHINGTON, D.C. (NEXSTAR) — The hunt is on for a new postmaster general, and some say whoever gets that job could have a big impact on how you get your mail.

That’s because the Trump administration wants to sell off and privatize parts of the postal service.

But some who are against that idea said it will make getting your mail tougher and cost some mail workers their jobs.

The White House said the US Postal Service should be a private business, not part of the government.

But Mark Dimondstein, president of the American Postal Workers Union, said mail service is too important to privatize.

“Everybody has the same right tho have mail service, no matter who we are and where we live, and that would all be threatened, undermined, and done away with postal privatization,” said Dimondstein.

In 2018, Trump called for a task force to restructure, or even sell off, the post office.

President Trump needs to remove PMG Brennan immediately. She has done irreparable damage to the Postal Service during her tenure as PMG. Primary example would be the subsidy given to Amazon on each parcel they ship.

Sell off the management part so we employees can get the job done at more accurate rates! No more sweetheart deals for Amazon, UPS or Fedex!
