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.

I trust that all APWU members had a Happy Holiday Season and New Year.

During 2018 we had countless things to be grateful for. We are still standing in spite of the White House’s unnecessary, unwarranted attacks on the Postal Service. Our challenge now in 2019 is to stay focused on strengthening our resolve to continue to safeguard and protect the public Postal Service and our jobs.

We were excited and energized in 2018. Let us carry that same enthusiasm over into 2019. Together, let’s make this year better by firmly growing in height, width and depth in our roles to liberate and free the Post Office from those who want to sell it to private corporations.
