New Alliance Takes on Corporate Push to Privatize the Post Office

CWA and more than 60 other labor, public interest, faith, community and civil rights organizations have formed the Grand Alliance to Save Our Public Postal Service.

Members of the American Postal Workers Union have been fighting back against attacks on their jobs and their communities. USPS management continues to push to outsource work – to Staples stores, particularly – and shut down post offices that are vital to so many communities. The coalition will fight back against the forces that want to dismantle and privatize this important service.

CWAers are a big part of this fight. You can learn more and become an alliance activist here.

APWU President Mark Dimondstein will join our February town hall call next week, reporting on the start of APWU contract negotiations and talking about postal workers' efforts to stop Fast Track authorization for the TPP.
