COVID-19 Virus Crisis

NALC Calls On Congress to Fund USPS During Covid-19 Pandemic April 10 2020

Support USPS in next emergency stimulus

 

As letter carriers on the front lines of serving 160 million Americans and businesses every day, you know that the Covid-19 pandemic is something we have never experienced before. While our letter carriers show their resilience, strength, and continued service to the public every day, the Postal Service looms closer to shuttering due to the staggering loss in mail volume and revenue during this crisis. It’s a desperate situation that only Congress and the Administration can help solve.

 

We cannot allow the USPS to fail.

 

Unfortunately, instead of providing much needed immediate financial assistance urged by NALC and stakeholders (viewable here), the last stimulus gave the Postal Service a slap in the face by giving it access to a conditional line of credit. Those conditions aren’t new to letter carriers - as they seek to destroy the network and attack letter carriers at the behest of private shippers. This is not a solution. It is a way to weaken the Postal Service by riddling it with more debt to the point where opponents of the constitutionally mandated service will destroy it.

 

While it’s been 40 years since we have needed taxpayer funding, we need financial relief to continue to serve this country through this crisis - and we need it now. Please take a minute to send a letter by clicking the button below to your members of Congress and tell them that we need: an immediate and significant injection of money - and secure, regular appropriations for the Postal Service until this crisis is over.
