Statement by APWU President Mark Dimondstein on Announcement That Patrick Donahoe Is Stepping Down as Postmaster General of the United States

For Immediate Release

11/14/2014 - Today’s announcement that Postmaster General Patrick Donahoe is stepping down is welcome news. Over the summer, delegates to the American Postal Workers Union national convention voted unanimously for his resignation. 

We hope that the next Postmaster General will reverse Donahoe’s policies of lowering standards, reducing hours, outsourcing work and diminishing a great American institution.

We call on USPS’ Board of Governors to immediately freeze Donahoe’s policies and to do no more harm.
