Announcement: RALLY AND PICKET TO CALL OUT THE POSTMASTER GENERAL ON 8/21

Tomorrow, 8/21, there will be an action at the Vancouver Hilton to "welcome" Postmaster General Patrick Donahoe. Some say this man should be wanted for crimes involving interruption of mail service due to cuts that could shave off one day per week of service, close numerous Post Offices throughout the country, and cut worker wages and benefits.


Bulletin:

RALLY AND PICKET:

HOLD POSTMASTER GENERAL ACCOUNTABLE No Closures! No Cuts! Stop Delay of the Mail! The Postmaster General is speaking to everyday people doing business inside the Vancouver Hilton. On July 1st PMG Donahoe began massive closures and cuts to mail-processing plants and offices while changing delivery standards to delay first class mail. The postal service is not broke. Congress manufactured a financial crisis and Congress or the President will fix it. The PMG is unnecessarily, criminally obstructing and delaying the mail in a misguided attempt to privatize this critical public communications service. The Alliance encourages putting postal professionals in charge of fully-funded and efficiently-staffed delivery services at all branches. No fear, no compromise, and no surrender. Courage, Commitment, & Community.

LET YOUR VOICE BE HEARD!

Hilton Vancouver Washington 301 West 6th Street, Vancouver, Washington 98660
