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.

      • sam

        We don’t know you neither.

      • 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

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

  • 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.

  • Toejam

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

  • timbo

    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.
