WI AFL-CIO: #SaveThePostOffice Actions Across Wisconsin August 25, 2020

Postal workers have heroically worked through the coronavirus pandemic, keeping the country connected and providing an economic lifeline to businesses and a means to necessities for many. But the crisis has decimated postal revenue, while costs have increased.

The Postal Service urgently needs a $25 billion appropriation from Congress to get through the crisis intact. The House of Representatives has approved $25 billion in postal funding, but the Senate still needs to act. To make matters worse, President Trump’s handpicked Postmaster General Louis DeJoy has used his first weeks in office to pursue an ideological cutting agenda that is slowing America’s mail and hurting businesses and families even further.

On Tuesday, August 25, thousands of people will take action across America with one clear message: #SaveThePostOffice.

The movement for our public Postal Service is demanding that elected officials and Postmaster General DeJoy:

  • Provide at least $25 billion in immediate support for the Postal Service
  • Stop and reverse the mail slowdown policies introduced by Postmaster General DeJoy
