APWU Public Outreach Campaign Continues

With tax filing deadline quickly approaching, the APWU will re-air its Ever Wonder ad beginning April 11, with spots airing on Fox News, CNN, MSNBC, and Headline News. The union’s 30-second ad describes the enormity of the job postal workers do, and ends with a simple question and response: Ever wonder what this costs you as a taxpayer? Not a single cent.

The ad informs the public about the work APWU members perform, and dispels the persistent myth that our work is funded by taxpayers. The airing of the ad is timed to coincide with two nationwide union-sponsored activities this month. The APWU has asked locals and state organizations to lobby senators at their home offices during the congressional recess, which continues through April 13, and to engage in informational leafleting on Tax Day, April 17. (Locals and state organizations are asked to send photos and write-ups of their activities to photos@apwu.org).

The APWU also will continue to air its America Depends on the Postal Service ads on CNN, MSNBC, and Fox News.

In the ads, postal workers and customers talk about the importance of the Postal Service to our nation — and the devastating effect closing post offices and consolidating mail processing plants would have on our communities and our economy.

“The ads and activities are intended to build public awareness and support for congressional efforts to resolve the Postal Service’s financial crisis without cutting pay, reducing benefits, eliminating collective bargaining rights, or slashing service,” said Cliff Guffey, president of the APWU.
