Message From The President
06/22/2018 - With only a few days before contract negotiations, President Dimondstein has an important message for you!

Furthermore, the White House plan is an attack on many federal agencies and the public services they provide.
Eliminating the universal service obligation, as the plan suggests, would hurt business and individuals alike, and would be a dagger aimed at the heart of rural America and undermine e-commerce.
