This is the August 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 August magazine, you’ll find my President’s Message, titled, “Like lambs to the slaughter”—
A few weeks ago, a trade association called the Printing Industries of America held a lobby day on Capitol Hill in support of H.R. 2309, the Postal Reform Act of 2011. You read that right—a key part of the mailing industry appears to want to commit suicide. The rest of the mailing industry has remained strangely quiet as Congress debates bills that would massively downsize the Postal Service and do irreparable harm to the entire mailing industry, which employs nearly 7.5 million workers in the private sector. NALC has refused to passively accept the unacceptable—and the mailing industry should do the same.
