APWU Launches Ad Campaign Against Consolidation in Michigan

10/15/2007 - An APWU advertising campaign in southern Michigan got underway last week, urging the citizens of Flint and Detroit to speak out against the consolidation of mail-processing operations into a new facility in Pontiac. The campaign is designed to generate interest in community meetings Oct. 22 and 23, when the USPS will discuss Area Mail Processing studies for the two cities. 

“The radio and TV ads will alert citizens to the danger of deteriorated mail service,” said APWU President William Burrus. “The USPS plans have been developed without any input from the American people. They are the result of efforts by big mailers to reduce their own postage costs at the expense of all others.” The Flint and Detroit consolidation studies are among nine ongoing nationwide.
