On Monday, CWAers joined thousands of postal workers and supporters across the country on a National Day of Action to tell President Trump: the U.S. Mail is Not for Sale!
In June, Trump proposed a disastrous plan to "restructure" the U.S. Postal Service and "prepare it for future conversion from a government agency into a privately-held corporation."
"Corporate greed has no boundaries," said CWA Local 1400 President Don Trementozzi at a rally in Portsmouth which was covered by the New Hampshire Union Leader. "This is a corporate scam. This is nothing more than the Trump administration trying to give his friends a fire sale (of assets) at the post office."
A large, bipartisan group of legislators in the U.S. House and Senate have already signaled their support for a resolution to ensure that the United States Postal Service remains an independent establishment of the Federal Government and not be subject to privatization.
CWAers, including members of CWA Local 1400, the CWA Arizona Retired Members Council, and AFA-CWA rallied at events across the country with postal workers to tell President Trump: the U.S. Mail is Not for Sale!
