04/13/2018 - President Trump has issued an Executive Order to form a “task force” to evaluate the finances of the United States Postal Service. Such evaluation will include pricing, policies and the costs of the workforce... “The APWU looks forward to working with anyone truly interested in maintaining a vibrant public Postal Service for generations to come. If given the opportunity to meet with the task force, we will forthrightly tell the truth, share our views and promote the protection of the rights and benefits of postal employees,” said APWU President Mark Dimondstein.
As tax day approaches, it is a good time to remind everyone about the important fact that the Postal Service receives zero taxpayer dollars. Get the word out! Download this flyer to print and share. Stay tuned to Facebook and Twitter on tax day for other ways to spread the word.
