Securing relief from the economic impact of the Coronavirus crisis is part of our work to ensure the health and safety of postal workers and the long-term future of the Postal Service. The Postal Service could run out of money by the end of the Summer. But instead of backing our public Postal Service, the Trump administration is trying to leverage the crisis to sacrifice our public Postal Service at the altar of private profit. It is vital that we put maximum pressure on our Congress members - the people WE elect - to #SaveThePostOffice.

2 million+ voices to #SaveThePostOffice

Jon "Bowzer" Bauman, Rahna Epting, Executive Director of MoveOn.org, President Dimondstein and guests joined together as we delivered more than 2,000,000 signatures to the U.S. Senate to Save The Post Office.

The Postal Service is in a crisis, caused by the Coronavirus, and Congress needs to act, urgently. Call your Senators and tell them to support stimulus funding for the USPS: 833-946-2037. The Coronavirus shutdown is plummeting postal revenues while increasing costs. The Postal Service could run out of money by the end of the summer and the Trump administration is trying to leverage the crisis to sacrifice our public Postal Service at the altar of private profit.

Save the Post Office ad and Danny Glover spot hit the airwaves

Postal workers and the fight to save the Postal Service hit the airwaves in two important new radio spots.

A new radio ad, which focuses on the threat the USPS, was launched today by the American Postal Workers Union. The nationwide ad buy will inlude key states, whose senators will cast crucial votes on postal finances.

Meanwhile, actor and social activist Danny Glover who has long been a supporter of postal workers and members of the American Postal Workers Union has also released a radio public service announcement asking the public to join him in expressing active gratitude for postal workers.

Democracy Now!

President Dimondstein appeared on Democracy Now! with Amy Goodman and Juan Gonzalez today. 

The interview covered the financial crisis facing the U.S. Postal Service, the impact of the Coronavirus on the USPS and the vital role of our public Postal Service in carrying out civic life across the country.

The public supports stimulus funding

A new nationwide opinion poll shows that the public overwhelmingly supports funding for the U.S. Postal Service in the next stimulus bill to prevent USPS from running out of cash. Postmaster General Megan Brennan has reported to Congress that due to a decline in revenue linked to the pandemic, USPS will run out of money by September, without financial support. The survey, conducted by YouGov on behalf of the American Postal Workers Union (APWU), also indicates that elected leaders who allow USPS to go bankrupt may face a significant backlash from voters.
