National Postal Mail Handlers Union Advocates for the Delivering for America Act Amid Postmaster General’s U-Turn

Postmaster General Louis DeJoy has retreated from further undermining the U.S. Postal Service (USPS) ahead of the general elections amid widespread criticism from union members. And the National Postal Mail Handlers Union-LIUNA (NPMHU-LIUNA) is pushing ahead with its support for the proposed Delivering for America Act (H.R. 8015) to provide $25 billion in emergency funding for the agency—the same amount of money for the USPS included in the HEROES Act. The union, led by National President Paul Hogrogian (pictured above), said, “The Postal Service is enshrined in Article I of the Constitution, and was considered vital to the creation of our country. As a nation, we cannot stand by while deliberate delays are put in place that undermine the nation’s most trusted federal agency and that threaten our electoral process. During this national health crisis, every American household and business needs to be assured they can continue to rely on the Postal Service.” The Delivering for America Act would repeal operational changes DeJoy implemented in July that have resulted in the systematic delay of mail.
