Featured Video Play Icon
Yesterday, Oct. 8, thousands of postal workers and supporters participated in over a hundred rallies across the country to proclaim that the U.S. Mail Is Not For Sale! This National Day of Action was sponsored jointly by the four postal unions.

“The Postal Service belongs to the people,” said APWU President Mark Dimondstein. “The last thing that we want and the people of this country want is Wall Street vultures feeding off the public good, for the benefit of a tiny minority, at the cost of the people of the country.”

Dozens of news outlets reported on their local events, and the hashtags #USMailNotForSale and #NotForSale tagged countless pictures and videos posted online.
