NALC tells members- lots going on in DC this week!

The National Association of Letter Carriers’ latest eActivist Alert::

NALC-LOGOThere’s a lot going on here in Washington this week. Here’s what you need to know:

Chairman Darrell Issa is holding a hearing tomorrow to discuss draft postal reform bills. Click here to read the NALC’s response to the Issa draft, and click here for our response to Rep. Elijah Cummings’ draft.

Issa has tentatively scheduled a mark-up of his bill for July 24, depending on how tomorrow’s hearing goes.

Also tomorrow, the bill containing the mandate for six-day mail delivery will be considered by the House Appropriations Committee. As you’ll recall, the six-day language was left intact last spring when the Financial Services and General Government Appropriations Subcommittee approved its 2014 spending bill.

  • informed letter carrier

    Speak for yourself!! I have been a carrier or 30 years and DO NOT want to go to 5 day!!!!!

  • informed letter carrier

    You obviously have not met President Rolando or any of the National Officers. I have and can assure you they DO have our best interest at heart and they all were once carriers.

  • informed letter carrier

    So you are saying your excellent benefits and salary are a joke??? Without the NALC what kind of job do you think you would have????

  • schnufus

    Don’t feed the trolls

  • TheRealFed

    Please spend my $18.00 wisely.

  • jimmer

    ups has the teamster union and they do not work Saturdays, except for overtime vols who work limited Saturday delivery, they just do not know how to make money, they should ask all the brilliant minds that say no Saturday delivery will be the end of the postal service, idiots.

  • sam

    We don’t know you neither.

  • sam

    With the NALC and the decline in mail are we going to have a job. Alot wont.

  • postal

    Rolando is clueless. He’s not a leader at all. He should be on the offensive, but he doesn’t have the backbone to really go after management.

  • Toejam

    Let me guess………..parties everywhere, wot???

  • Toejam

    What they SAY, and what they DO widely destincts whom they really “are”. (also, with whom they sleep with)

  • Toejam

    MIS + informed letter carrier = DOLT

    How many of you would walk off your job and go with me to Washington and shut the city down. If 100, 000 would you wouldn’t be putting up with any of this crap. I bet there wouldn’t be 5, 000 show up, but there would be 95, 000 with excuses why they could not show up. We deserve what we are about to receive.
