Stop the Postal Sell-off: Say NO to a Privatizer as the Postmaster General

Sign the petition to the Postal Service Board of Governors

In July 2018 the White House announced proposals to privatize the Postal Service. Now Postmaster General Megan Brennan has announced her departure as Postmaster General in January 2020.

The Postmaster General has wide powers to shape the mission of USPS and there is a real risk that Brennan’s successor could hand over parts of the service to private, profit-making corporations and prepare it for a wholesale sell-off.

The people will rightly expect a new Postmaster General who will uphold the Postal Service’s public mission and will work to preserve and enhance our national treasure.

While our leaders continue fighting for a fair contract, we must continue enforcing the current language still in effect. The Local Memorandum of Understanding (LMOU) For Offices Without a Local Union Structure applies to USPS offices where there is no local union structure, or state/district wide LMOU, and there are APWU represented employees. It contains provisions and 12 sections that cover various employee rights, from the formulation of the local leave program, to seniority, reassignments and postings. The timeline of the agreement is the same as our current CBA. If you work in one of these offices, be aware of these rights or at least know where to find them.
