NALC will hold a day of action on Sunday, March 24, to mobilize public support for Saturday delivery service. The timing will allow us the perfect opportunity to remind our representatives in Washington to maintain the six-day mail delivery language in the continuing budget resolution, expected to be renewed by Congress on March 27. “We want to make this fight about the cost of losing Saturday mail delivery and how it would affect people in each and every state,” NALC President Fredric Rolando said.
Letter carriers are encouraged to gather friends, family, co-workers and community coalition partners at specified post offices in major media centers with signage and T-shirts that reflect the feelings of the citizenry, such as “Virginians for Saturday delivery” or “The people of California want 6-day delivery.” Carriers should not wear their uniforms. More information on the day of action will be posted here and in the NALC Bulletin and will also be available from your local branch leaders.
