Spread the word!
The USPS takes NO taxpayer dollars!
Postal workers are again uniting, this time to let the public know that the Postal Service operates with NO tax dollars.
We encourage APWU state and local unions – as well as retiree and auxiliary chapters – to plan an action in their area:
- Organize a group to leaflet in front of a post office or in a public space.
- Hold a press conference to spread the message that the USPS operates on NO taxpayer dollars.
Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for media coverage assistance.
