12/19/2007 - The APWU has written to all members of the U.S. House of Representatives, asking them to co-sponsor and support the Mail Network Protection Act, which would require the Postal Service to bargain with unions before committing to significant subcontracting. The legislation (H.R. 4236) was introduced by Rep. Stephen Lynch (D-MA) on Nov. 15.
Winning co-sponsors for H.R. 4236 [must be a priority for APWU activists, APWU President William Burrus said. “It is imperative that union members contact their representatives and let them know that this legislation is important to the future of the Postal Service and to postal workers.”
