The Stand

Rally Thursday in Seattle to oppose S. 1789

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

The National Association of Letter Carriers and supporters of U.S. Postal Service employees will rally from 4:30 to 6 p.m. on Thursday, April 12 at Seattle’s Federal Building (915 2nd Ave.) to call upon the U.S. Senate to vote NO on S. 1789. The NALC will be holding “Save America’s Postal Service” rallies across the country that day outside U.S. Senator’s home offices.

S. 1789 could come before the Senate immediately following the Easter recess. If this legislation passes, it would hurt the U.S. Postal Service by:

  • Putting an end to six-day mail delivery in two years.
  • Phasing out door-to-door mail delivery.
  • Failing to fully address the Postal Service’s pre-funding requirement.
  • Not addressing the overpayment into the CSRS pension fund.
