TTD’s 2015 labor agenda continues support for USPS

The AFL-CIO’s Transportation Trades Department and its 32 affiliated unions—including the National Association of Letter carriers—stays involved in every major transportation policy debate in Washington, focused on expanding transportation investments, reforming safety policy, protecting workers’ rights, and rejecting job-killing trade policies.

The TTD Executive Committee recently approved a policy statement regarding USPS, affirming TTD’s continued “support for a strong, financially sound Postal Service.
