The Postal Service’s proposal to eliminate Saturday mail delivery has been widely reported, but most news articles fail to address the devastating effect it would have on the USPS, as well as on citizens, businesses, and communities.

Accordingly, the union has prepared an outline of “talking points” [members only brochure | text only] to correct the record and to assist locals in efforts to oppose five-day delivery. The outline will help local activists spread the word about why ending Saturday mail delivery is unnecessary, and how it would lead to the demise of the world’s most efficient, dependable and affordable postal system.

APWU members are urged to contact their U.S. representatives to encourage them to co-sponsor House Resolution 173, which urges the Postal Service to continue six-day delivery.
