NALC is leaving no stone unturned in our campaign to Save America’s Postal Service and to preserve Saturday mail delivery. We are lobbying in Washington, rallying our grassroots activists and using every channel available to us to deliver our message to the nation’s leaders.
I urge you to use one of these channels to advance our cause and access the "We the People" petitions on the White House website.
The Obama administration is using this petition process to solicit citizen input on important policy decisions. If a petition receives 5,000 signatures or more in the 30 days after it is created, the White House will create an official response.
Two weeks ago, President Obama submitted a proposal to Congress that would allow the Postal Service to reduce mail delivery to five days a week. On Sept. 28, a "We the People" petition was created that seeks the preservation of six-day mail delivery service, citing the vital role Saturday delivery plays in the economic future of the USPS.
Thanks to your efforts, this six-day delivery petition has nearly 6,000 signatures on it, so far. Our goal is to boost that number to at least 25,000 signers between now and Oct. 29. With your help, we can send a message to the White House about how important Saturday mail delivery is to the American people.
Please click this link, sign in, and sign your name on this petition to preserve Saturday delivery.
Another "We the People" petition asks the Obama administration to return to the Postal Service the money USPS has overpaid into both the Civil Service Retirement System (CSRS) and the Federal Employees Retirement System (FERS). This petition reached the 150-signature threshold to appear on whitehouse.gov yesterday and only has about 750 signatures on it. We would like to boost that number to at least 25,000 signatures as well.
Please click this link, sign in, and sign your name on the petition to return the overpayments.
We are making great progress in our campaigns. This week, the legislation we support in the House of Representatives, H.R. 1351, gained a bipartisan majority of co-sponsors. Our nationwide rallies on Sept. 27 were instrumental in this success. Your participation in the White House petition process can help us keep that momentum going.
