Recess call to action

With so much recent activity on the budget and with the renewed interest in postal-specific issues, the congressional recess is an ideal time for NALC members to remind our representatives not to support any legislation that reduces mail delivery service, damages USPS’ networks, and does not fix the requirement to pre-fund retiree health benefits.

Representatives are holding events across the country to listen to our concerns. Call, write and visit your representatives, and attend a town hall meeting to make your voice heard. America needs a strong Postal Service and the NALC needs you to deliver that message.
