The North Carolina Letter Carrier Activist is a blog of the North Carolina State Association of Letter Carriers which represents over 5,000 active and retired letter carriers. The NCSALC believes that if the U.S. Postal Service is to thrive in the 21st century, letter carriers must be proactive and work to ensure that Congress enacts legislation that addresses issues impacting not only the lives of postal employees but all working men and women and their families. It is our belief that what adversely affects one area of labor, affects us all. Therefore, it is incumbent upon each and everyone of us to be actively involved in the democratic process. To that end, the NCSALC has created this blog for the explicit purpose of not only disseminating information that affects us, but also to encourage active participation of its readers to become involved and make a difference.
