Thousands of APWU members joined our nationwide phone action on Tuesday, July 23 to tell Congress to fix a bad law that has put our public Postal Service in jeopardy.
More than 5,000 postal workers, allies, and community supporters called their Representative in Washington, DC and asked them to cosponsor the USPS Fairness Act (H.R. 2382) – following a call to action from APWU President Mark Dimondstein and Legislative & Political Director Judy Beard.
The legislation would repeal the Postal Accountability and Enhancement Act’s (PAEA) burdensome pre-funding mandate for retiree health care. That burdensome mandate is pulling billions of dollars out of the Postal Service, which has caused job and service cuts across the USPS.
The USPS Fairness Act would do a lot to put the US Postal Service back on the road to sustainability.
