This is the October 2012 edition of the “President’s Preview,” a quick look at the upcoming edition of The Postal Record that’s in the mail now. This e-mail message is part of our ongoing effort to ensure that your union stays in touch with every e-Activist at least once a month.
In the October magazine, you’ll find my President’s Message, titled, “Future of Postal Service rides on this election”—
How many times have you heard a politician say: “This is the most important election in our lifetimes”? But for letter carriers, that cliché is absolutely true this year. The fate of the Postal Service is on the line. The 113th Congress—if not the lame-duck 112th Congress—will be forced to pass postal reform legislation because the USPS has exhausted its borrowing authority and the combined effects of the retiree health prefunding burden and the Internet will cause a cash crisis in the months ahead. So who wins and who loses the White House, and who wins and who loses in the House and Senate, will do more to determine your job security, your standard of living and the quality of your health benefits and pensions than any other factor before us.
