APWU: Senate Postal Bill Is ‘Fatally Flawed’

The leaders of the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs, Sen. Tom Carper (D-DE) and Sen. Tom Coburn (R-OK), introduced postal legislation on Aug. 1, just before Congress adjourned for a five-week recess.

The APWU is reviewing the 194-page bill (S. 1486) and will provide a more complete analysis of the legislation once the review is complete. But after a quick review, President Cliff Guffey said, “This bill is fatally flawed. It is a betrayal of the working men and women of the United States Postal Service and it will not protect the USPS from the impending financial disaster Congress set in motion in 2006 with the passage of the PAEA.”
