Postal Workers Saved Our Election, and Now Need Our Help To Prevent Their Jobs Being Killed
with
Mark Dimondstein, Postal Workers President

The 2020 election may be mostly over, but Trump Postmaster General Louis DeJoys plans to destroy the Postal Service arent"and the Postal Workers are leading a wide-ranging national coalition setting up Nov. 17 events to stop him. The union announced plans urging their allies to stage pro-Postal Service rallies, including virtual rallies at post offices nationwide.

At stake, is DeJoys scheme, shelved due to public pressure in the months before the election, to rip out sorting machines, fire thousands of USPS workers"most of whom are unionized, people of color, female, veterans, or combinations thereof"and slow down the delivery of everything from medicines to Social Security checks.

Moreover, Dimondstein says, we face the GOP-right wing plan, backed by corporate mailers, to carve up the Postal Service, sell off its profitable sections to the private sector, and leave the rest of the country to suffer. Our opponents are moving in for the kill and exploiting this pandemic with shameful cuts to services and trying to sell it off and privatize it, he stated.
