APWU Local Shows Support For H.R. 22 at New York City Rally

APWU Web News Article #044-09, April 17, 2009

The APWU is supporting H.R. 22 — legislation that is critically needed to preserve the nation’s postal system — not only by reaching out to lawmakers but by rallying at the heart of the issue, in front of facilities threatened by the Postal Service’s precarious fiscal situation. “H.R. 22 will provide necessary financial relief for the USPS,” said New York Metro APWU President Clarice Torrence during a rally in front of a Manhattan Post Office slated for closure this summer. “The bill will enable the Postal Service to survive without making such drastic cuts and it won’t cost the taxpayers one cent.” [full story] [Union Asks Members to Contact Congress]
