Join the USPS Fairness Act Nationwide Phone Action

APWU Young Member Committee Members Make Calls

On July 23, 2019, postal workers and the communities we serve are standing up for our public Postal Service. It's time to protect America's most cherished institution. We are telling our elected representatives to pass the USPS Fairness Act.

In 2006, Congress saddled our public Postal Service with an unfair and unsustainable burden of pre-funding retiree health care benefits for the next 75 years! The USPS Fairness Act will start to put that right by removing the unfair burden. 

Join us supporting our public Postal Service. Sign up to call your member of Congress on July 23, 2019.
