‘Dump the Postmaster General!’

07/22/2014 - After noting that some have called Postmaster General Patrick Donahoe’s actions criminal -- a clear violation of the law that created and maintains the Postal Service as a fundamental right of the people -- APWU President Mark Dimondstein called the PMG “Wall Street’s Trojan Horse, the privatizer from within.”

President Mark Dimondstein:

It’s Time to Stand Up and Fight Back

07/22/2014 - “Attacks are being waged from all quarters – Congress, Wall Street and the Postmaster General himself,” APWU President Mark Dimondstein said in the opening of his “State of Our Union” message to the delegates at the union’s 22nd national convention. “Privatization is not a distant danger but a direct and immediate threat.  A congressionally manufactured financial crisis is being used to justify new assaults on postal jobs and on the 239-year old public Post Office.”

“To survive the onslaught, we must transform our union into a fighting; activist organization and we must build a Grand Alliance with the people of the country to defend our national treasure, the United States Postal Service,” Dimondstein said.
