We did it!
Dear APWU Family,
We did it!
Just moments ago, the Senate passed the Postal Service Reform Act with a strong, bipartisan vote of 79-19. As you’ll recall, the bill passed the House last month 342-92. We expect President Biden will sign the bill into law in the next few days.
Winning this critical legislation has been a massive collective effort spanning more than a decade. Tens of thousands of postal workers have rallied, signed petitions, written and met with their members of Congress, made countless calls to Capitol Hill and worked to build a broad coalition to get us to this point.
Your leadership has been absolutely critical in this long struggle. Together, we’ve organized our members from the workroom floor, our leaders, and our activist base in this critical fight. And together, we’ve prevailed.
Passing this bill strengthens the public Postal Service, our national treasure. It protects our members’ jobs. And it gives us a new footing in the fight to defend the quality service the public deserves and to expand and enhance services in the years to come.
Congratulations to all of you who organized and mobilized over the years to help us pass this critical legislation.
