Media Center / Mail Handler Update

June 2019

In June 2019, more than one hundred mail handlers from across the country gathered in Washington, DC to participate in the NPMHU’s biennial Legislative Conference for the 116th Congress. The two-day conference was filled with significant programs and activities. The first day of the conference included a full training program, with a host of speakers and panel discussions highlighting both the substance of USPS issues now facing Congress and the methods used by successful lobbyists. The second day of the conference allowed all of the newly-trained mail handlers to meet with Members of Congress and their professional staff.

Throughout these meetings, mail handlers expressed their support for:
H. Res. 60—In support of appropriate measures to restore service standards in effect as of July 1, 2012;
H. Res. 33—In support of measures to ensure that the United States Postal Service remains an independent establishment of the Federal Government and is not subject to privatization;
H. Res. 23—Supporting measures to ensure the continuation of door delivery for all business and residential customers; and
H. Res. 54—Supporting the continuation of 6-day mail delivery service. In addition, the NPMHU supports H.R. 2382, the USPS Fairness Act, legislation that, if passed, would end the prefunding burden for the Retiree Health Benefits Fund that was placed upon USPS finances when the Postal Accountability and Enhancement Act (PAEA) was passed in 2006.
