Although the Postal Service sings the blues in press releases and media reports about a “fiscal hole, $90 billion deep,” there were increases in shipping and packaging volume – up 14.4 percent – compared to the same time last year.

The “hole” that USPS refers to only exists on paper. Thanks to a 2006 mandate by a lame-duck Congress, the Postal Service is required to pre-fund retiree health benefits 75 years into the future, something no other public entity or private firm is required to do.

“We are asking locals to reach out to APWU members, our sister postal unions, and other allies to stand with us at post offices on May 14 as we demonstrate support for Good Postal Service! Good Jobs! Good Contract!” said APWU President Mark Dimondstein.

"The next day, we will begin the final push of intense negotiations – around the clock, if necessary – so it’s important that we have a strong showing," he added. "We can only win a good contract if APWU members and our families, friends and allies are actively engaged. So let’s build momentum!"
