Sun Oct 2 2011 (Updated 10/03/11) Protesters in Sacramento and Palo Alto Join the Call for No Cuts to Postal Service
Demonstrators Fight to Save the U.S. Postal System On September 27th, thousands of members of the four employee unions of the United States Postal Service joined forces with allies and community members to send a message to the nation and its Congress. All around the country, protesters demonstrated against proposals to close thousands of post offices, eliminate Saturday deliveries, lay off workers, cut postal workers’ pay, and end collective bargaining rights.

In Sacramento, postal workers demonstrated in front of the office of Republican Congressman Dan Lungren. In Palo Alto, employees belonging to the National Association of Letter Carriers were joined by the Raging Grannies in a boisterous demonstration. Together they called for an end to the attack on unionized public workers.
