‘It Was Electric’

Senator Bernie Sanders 

Presidential candidate Bernie Sanders thrilled APWU members attending the union’s All-Craft Conference in Las Vegas on Oct. 14.

“It was electric,” said APWU President Mark Dimondstein of the response to Sanders’ speech.

Sanders told the audience of approximately 2,000 APWU members, “The beauty of the Postal Service is that it provides universal service six days a week to every corner of America, no matter how small or how remote. It supports millions of jobs in virtually every sector of our economy.  It provides decent-paying union jobs to some 500,000 Americans, and it is the largest employer of veterans.

“Whether you are a low-income elderly woman living at the end of a dirt road in Nevada or Vermont or a wealthy CEO living on Park Avenue, you get your mail six days a week. And the American people pay for this service at a cost far less than anywhere else in the industrialized world.

“Yet, the Postal Service is under constant and vicious attack,” he said. “As a matter of fact, the same billionaires who want to privatize Social Security, Medicare, and public education, also want to privatize the Postal Service.
