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.

  • There are parts of the job I love and some good people here.
  • I know this job can be better, and that’s why I’m involved in our local union.

Sometimes the vision of the national/local officers and stewards does not reach the member on the workroom floor.

Our union’s vision, to be effective, calls on everyone to play a part and get involved with something they care about. Goals must be set and everyone needs to do their part.
