Dear Supporter, Do you need to update your NALC e-Activist Network e-mail address or other account information? Please click here.
Much of what you read and hear about the United State Postal Service continues to be laden with inaccurate or misleading information. It doesn’t matter if it’s in your local newspaper or in the national media—the truth about the Postal Service does not usually make the headlines.
That’s why I’m hitting the airwaves.
I hope you will tune in to Bradford, PA’s Newsradio 1490 WESB (online at wesb.com) on Thursday, June 23, to listen to my recent radio interview. (The interview will air four times throughout the day.) In it, I set the record straight about the current and future state of United State Postal Service.
Despite the financial challenges facing the USPS, there is a bipartisan legislative solution that would put the Postal Service on the road to recovery. As you know, the financial condition of the USPS is hampered by its congressional mandate to fund its future retiree health obligations decades in advance. Proposed legislation would permit the Postal Service to use surplus pension funds—not taxpayer money—to pre-fund these future retiree health benefit obligations.
I also use this opportunity to share some ideas about how to ensure that the Postal Service will continue to serve the American people, six days a week, far into the future.
