This is the November 2011 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 November magazine, you'll find my President's Message, titled, "Rap session focus: Saving America's Postal Service"—
The battle for the future of the Postal Service came into sharp focus last month. On Oct. 13, the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee marked up and passed by a narrow margin a bill sponsored by Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA) that would radically downsize the Postal Service by mandating a massive round of post office closings and eliminating Saturday delivery, direct the USPS to lay off senior postal employees, cut our health benefits and gut our collective-bargaining rights. The Issa bill (H.R. 2309) is to the Postal Service what the Paul Ryan budget is to Medicare: It would destroy the agency.
On Oct. 16, at the National Rap Session in Las Vegas, the leaders of the NALC gathered to offer a quite different vision for the future, one that will preserve universal service and six-day delivery by finding new ways to use our unmatchable retail, processing and delivery networks to serve our country.
