The National Association of Letter Carriers has told members of its eActivist Network that their calls will prevent Senator Joe Lieberman’s postal reform bill from receiving a floor vote next week. The NALC opposes the provision in the bill that would allow the USPS to cut Saturday deliveries.
Thanks to you and your brothers and sisters across the country, S. 1789 will not be brought to the Senate floor next week. We were successful in delaying a floor vote on S. 1789 because letter carriers called their senators and urged them to oppose the bill in its current form.
S. 1789 is still on the docket, though, and it might be brought up in the near future. Therefore, it is imperative that you continue to check your e-mail and the NALC website for the most up-to-date information regarding further action on S. 1789.
The NALC is continuing to work with Senate leadership and our allies in the Senate to reform the bill before the Senate considers it for passage.
This week, you did your part to protect the future of the United States Postal Service and, when I call on you again, I know you will take action to keep the pressure on the Senate to do the right thing.
Thank you for your continued efforts.
Fredric V. Rolando, President
National Association of Letter Carriers
