On Friday, Nov. 14, community members will join together with postal service workers for a national day of action to tell Postmaster General Patrick Donahoe and the USPS Board of Governors: Stop Delaying America's Mail.
GET INVOLVED: As part of the National Day of Action, there will be a demonstrations:
Madison: 9:00 - 11:00 AM, on Friday, Nov. 14, 2014, at the Main Post Office, 3902 Milwaukee Street, Madison, WI.
Eau Claire: 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm, The "Old" Post Office, 126 North Barstow Street, Eau Claire, WI 54703
The Postmaster General is poised to make devastating cuts in service to the American people – cuts so severe that they will forever damage the U.S. Postal Service.
- On Jan. 5, the USPS is slated to lower “service standards” to virtually eliminate overnight delivery – including first-class mail from one address to another within the same city or town.
All mail (medicine, online purchases, local newspapers, church bulletins, letters, bill payments, invitations) throughout the country will be delayed.
- Beginning Jan. 5, 82 Mail Processing & Distribution Centers are scheduled to close.
These cuts will cause hardships for customers, drive away business, cause irreparable harm to the U.S. Postal Service, and lead to massive schedule changes and reassignments for employees.
