Next Step: Win Support for House Resolution 54
06/30/2015 - The vote by a House Committee on June 17 approving an amendment that would restore postal service standards “is a big step forward for postal workers and our customers,” said APWU President Mark Dimondstein.
“If enacted, it will mean that management must restore overnight mail delivery within cities and towns, and that the 2- and 3-day delivery standards that were wiped out in January must be restored. It also would make additional plant consolidations less feasible.”
The legislation would rescind the lower service standards the USPS implemented on Jan. 5 – which have wreaked havoc on mail delivery – and restore the standards that were in place on July 1, 2012.
