ATTENTION!!!!
ALL MAIL HANDLERS AND POSTAL WORKERS!
The National Postal Mail Handlers Union and the American Postal Workers Union are working together on Tax Day April 17th on a very important informational leafleting to our Customers!
We as postal workers along with support from our community will be outside Oakland Main Post office 1675 7th St from 8:30 am until 10:30pm. There will be a speak out/rally from 3:30pm until 7:30pm.
Together we can stop the fraudulent, disastrous & totally unnecessary attack on our postal service and its workers!
The Postmaster General wants to kill the Postal Service: slash 200,000 + jobs, delay the mail, and close 3,700 Post Offices.
Most shutdowns are in poor and rural communities, where jobs and service are needed most.
The postal service is NOT in financial crisis. It is subject to ridiculous and unfair requirements imposed by Congress in 2006.
This could be the last chance before a bill comes from Congress for us to lift OUR voice and stop the back door PRIVATIZATION of the postal service.
Take a day of leave or come to work a few hours early or stay after work for a few hours this is YOUR chance to fight for your Job.
SEE YOU OUT THERE!!!

Oakland Branch President
