09/11/2014 - If Postmaster General Patrick Donahoe thought his speech to a group of business mailers in Salt Lake City on Sept. 10 was going to be a quiet, uneventful affair, he was mistaken.

A coalition of unions and postal customers showed up outside the Grand America Hotel, the site of the speech, to protest the PMG’s plans to privatize postal operations and cut service to the people.

“We are here today to tell Postmaster General Patrick Donahoe that his destructive cutbacks to the American people’s Postal Service will not be tolerated,” Charlie Cash, president of Salt Lake City Area Local APWU, told media outlets.

09/11/2014 - The Postmaster General’s Federal Register announcement makes management’s intent to impose more consolidations and cuts crystal clear. Even if we succeed in our legislative efforts, the USPS Board of Governors will plow ahead with their strategic initiatives to “rationalize” the network and streamline the workforce. The next wave of consolidated attack is slated for January 2015. So we MUST PREPARE!
