April 12th: Rally Day!

National Association of Letter Carriers

Today, NALC has organized nearly 200 demonstrations covering all 50 states to express our disapproval with legislation making its way through the Senate.

S. 1789 will most likely come up for a vote following the Easter recess. In its current form, S. 1789 jeopardizes 6-day delivery in 2 years, phases out door-to-door delivery, radically downsizes the Postal Service, and reduces service standards to pay for unfair congressional mandates.

These demonstrations will engage the media and educate the public. As a union of nearly 300,000 strong, today we can let the public know the truth about the Postal Service and remind the U.S. Senate that dismantling USPS is not a solution that Americans can support.

If you plan on attending a rally, please take pictures and email them to saveamericaspostalservice@gmail.com. We will also be utilizing social media throughout the day; be sure to tweet at @NALC_National, and use the hashtag #StopS1789.
