Announcing a day of action to #SaveThePostOffice. Mark Dimondstein (Pres. of the American Postal Workers Union) layed out why it’s so important that the public stands in solidarity with postal workers to call for $25B in emergency funding.
Nearly 100,000 veterans work for the U.S. Postal Service, one of the country’s largest employer of veterans. Although it’s facing significant financial hardship due to Covid-19, Lee Zeldin voted against the Heroes Act (the follow up relief bill to the one passed in March). It would provide the Postal Service with:
1) $25 billion to make up for lost revenue
2) Emergency funding for personal protective equipment, and
3) premium pay ($13/hr) for all postal employees until 60 days after the pandemic ends. (HR 6800, Vote #109, 5/15/20)
