With Gray Brechin; Dave Welsh, NALC; and Jose Carlos Riquelme, APWU.

Gray Brechin will provide the context of the closings within the push for privatization of the public sector and will describe how the New Deal not only built post offices, but also beautified them with public art. Union postal workers will talk about the national grassroots fight to stop service cutbacks and preserve living-wage postal jobs for our communities.
