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.

About the MVS Division

The Motor Vehicle Service Craft is composed of APWU members who transport mail and maintain postal vehicles. It is — and always has been — the best-organized craft in the APWU. Approximately two thirds of MVS members are drivers and one-fifth are mechanics. The Motor Vehicle Service Craft also includes Driver Safety Instructors who train and familiarize all employees with driving duties and MVS Clerks who work in Vehicle Maintenance Facilities and in Transportation Departments in mail processing plants.
