April 17 Plans Move Into High Gear

APWU Web News Article 035-2012, April 13, 2012

(4/13/2012) Plans for April 17, Tax Day, are moving into high gear, with hundreds of locals organizing activities. That day, the APWU and the National Postal Mail Handlers Union will conduct informational leafleting at post offices around the country to highlight an urgent message: Congress must act now to avert a Postal Service disaster. A moratorium on the closure of post offices and mail processing plants expires on May 15, 2012, and postal officials have said they intend to begin consolidating more than 200 mail processing facilities and 3,600 post offices if Congress fails to act by the deadline. 

Locals and state organizations are asked to send photos and write-ups of their activities to photos@apwu.org.

The list below shows locals that will participate in the April 17 activities to Save America's Postal Service. Times and locations are given where the national union has been notified. Additional times and locations will be posted as the information is received.

For more information and to download a flyer, see APWU Web News Article 026-2012, "Union Calls for April Actions to Save the Postal Service." For information about what your local is doing, contact your local union office, and GET INVOLVED!
