Tell the Postmaster General, Board of Governors: Stop Delaying America’s Mail! National Day of Action Nov. 14

Tell the Postmaster General, Board of Governors: Stop Delaying America’s Mail! National Day of Action Nov. 14

"... “The Postmaster General is poised to make devastating cuts in service to the American people – cuts so severe that they will forever damage the U.S. Postal Service,” the union presidents said. On Jan. 5, 2015, the USPS is slated to lower “service standards” to virtually eliminate overnight delivery – including first-class mail from one address to another within the same city or town. All mail (letters, periodicals, packages) throughout the country will be delayed. Beginning Jan. 5, 2015, 82 Mail Processing & Distribution Centers are scheduled to close or “consolidate operations.” The unions selected the Nov. 14 date because it coincides with the USPS Board of Governors’ last public meeting of 2014...."
