Act with us to help elect pro-letter carrier candidates

We’re less than a month away from a historic election, and there’s a lot at stake for working families.

With the unusual hype surrounding the presidential campaigns, it’s easy to forget that we have an opportunity to help elect candidates to the Senate who promise to be champions for letter carriers, the Postal Service and all federal employees. We need fierce advocates for letter carriers in both the White House and Senate to help break through the gridlock over effective postal reform.

Because the stakes are so high with this election, the labor movement is engaged in one of its most aggressive field plans ever. If we’re going to help pro-letter carrier and pro-working family candidates get elected to office, we need letter carriers, their family members and their neighbors to get involved now.

Union members across the country are showing up to canvass and phone-bank every day. Let’s help build on the momentum that they’ve helped to create by joining our brothers and sisters in the field.

By making a contribution to the Letter Carrier Political Fund, you are doing so voluntarily with the understanding that your contribution is not a condition of membership in the National Association of Letter Carriers or of employment by the Postal Service, nor is it part of union dues. You have a right to refuse to contribute without any reprisal. The Letter Carrier Political Fund will use the money it receives to contribute to candidates for federal office and undertake other political spending as permitted by law. Your selection shall remain in full force and effect until cancelled. Contributions to the Letter Carrier Political Fund are not deductible for federal income tax purposes. Federal law prohibits the Letter Carrier Political Fund from soliciting contributions from individuals who are not NALC members, executive and administrative staff or their families. Any contribution received from such an individual will be refunded to that contributor. Federal law requires us to use our best efforts to collect and report the name, mailing address, occupation and name of employer of individuals whose contributions exceed $200 per calendar year. Any guideline amount is merely a suggestion, and an individual is free to contribute more or less than the guideline suggests and the Union will not favor or disadvantage anyone by reason of the amount of their contribution or their decision not to contribute.
