1st Quarter Report of 2019
Hope that this finds everyone doing well.
We still have ongoing Resolutions dealing with 6 day delivery, HR54; Door to Door Delivery, HR 23; Service Standards, HR 60; and the Opposition of Postal Privatization, HR 33. This is our livelihood. Everyone needs to contact their Congressman and ask them to Co-sponsor every Resolution that was mentioned. We also need to keep in touch with your LCCL’s to contribute to Letter Carrier Political Fund.
We just got back from Washington, D.C. for our Legislative trip. I went to Congressman Thornberry’s office. We did not visit with him but his Legislative Liaison. We talked about all of the above resolutions and he said that he would talk to the Congressman. We also went to Congresswoman Granger’s office and had the same results. He said that he would talk to Congresswoman about the same resolutions.
We have also just learned that they are now trying to take away our Post Office, our wages, our pensions, our insurance, collective bargaining, everything. That is, they are trying to privatize the Post Office. This is your job and you should fight for them. We need every Letter Carrier to call Congressman Thornberry’s office and let him know that he needs to co-sponsor these resolutions. The phone number for Thornberry’s DC office is 1-202-225-3706. Keep calling and let him know that we want him to co-sponsor these resolutions. Let’s keep contributing to the Letter Carrier Political Fund. This fund helps the them at the National level to give them our views on the positions.
The NALC App on your phone has all the information too. Let us all give to the Letter Carrier Political Fund.
