The time is now! We can not sit back and wait for National leaders to send a message. They are not in the field dealing with customers and realizing the disastrous results of the Delivering for America Plan implemented this fall. We need to tell our stories and make the truth known to dispel the propaganda that will be spewed in the upcoming Postal Board of Governors meeting. We saw a preview of what is likely to be reported last week in a Postal News release; the wonders of our Holiday preparations-hiring more people, bringing in new equipment, blah, blah, blah. Report what you are experiencing everyday-long hours, short staffing, impossible scheduling, hostile customers, hostile coworkers-all of it stems from the disregard of Executive Leadership to address the real issues in our workplaces. Instead they are using our misery as an excuse to privatize the Institution and destroy the public Postal Service.
YOUR STORY is important, and YOU can stop what is happening, but you must act quickly! President Biden is under immense pressure to reappoint Ron Bloom, a corporate investment banker that has dubious ties with DeJoy. We must send our message before these corporate interests can be persuasive. President Biden has shown that he is interested in protecting the Postal Service, and without our stories the propaganda is likely to cloud his judgement for the upcoming appointments.
It only takes a few minutes to send your message. It is a small price to pay to save the Postal Service and preserve your jobs and family futures! Send the message using this link today-the Board of Governors meets Wednesday, please flood the White House with messages urging the President to Dump DeJoy and Bounce Bloom.
President, Iowa Postal Workers Union
