Saving the U.S. Postal Service

Saving the U.S. Postal Service

Sen. Bernie Sanders hosts a virtual town hall with the leaders of the country’s major postal unions on how the federal government can act to save the postal system.

Sanders is joined by American Postal Workers Union President Mark Dimondstein, National Association of Letter Carriers President Fredric V. Rolando, National Postal Mail Handlers Union President Paul V. Hogrogian, and Legislative and Political Director for the American Postal Workers Union Judy Beard.

Without an infusion of emergency funding, the Postmaster General has estimated that the Postal Service, the most popular government agency in America, will run out of cash by September 30th. The Postal Service's Board of Governors, composed of 3 Republicans and 2 Democrats, unanimously recommended that Congress pass $75 billion in emergency funding to rescue the Postal Service, but the Trump Administration is opposed to this much needed relief.
