National Day of Action

Privatizers – those who want to sell the public postal service to private corporations – are hard at work. Together we can stop them in their tracks.

Get ready to hit the streets with our sister postal unions, family, friends, and community allies to Save Our Service. Rallies will take place at many Congressional offices throughout the country.  In Grand Junction, we are meeting at the Post Office on 4th and Rood from Noon to 1.

Let us know that you will be here by clicking HERE.
