By the end of this week, the House of Representatives is expected to vote on the Trade Promotion Authority (“Fast Track”) legislation that was passed by the Senate last month.
And right now, the House is deciding on the procedure for considering trade bills, and House leaders are working hard to secure every last vote they will need for Fast Track to pass.
That’s why it is urgent for all of us—and for our co-workers, family members and friends—to tell our representatives in the House that we oppose Fast Track.
Call your congressional representative NOW and tell them to vote NO on Fast Track.
This vote is expected to be close and our voices need to be heard. Your representative needs to know that allowing trade agreements to be fast-tracked would have serious implications for the Postal Service. For example:

But most importantly, call your congressional representative NOW and tell them to vote NO on Fast Track.
