The public service mission of the Postal Service has made it the most popular federal agency. However, warned the AFL-CIO last week, “this public good is at risk if we don’t all act soon.” In June 2018 the White House announced proposals to privatize the Postal Service. Now Postmaster General Megan Brennan has announced her departure later this month. The Postmaster General has wide powers to shape the mission of the Postal Service and the AFL-CIO warns that “there is a real risk that Brennan’s successor could hand over parts of the service to private, profit-making corporations and prepare it for a wholesale sell-off.” You can add your voice and protect the public Postal Service by signing the petition to Stop the Postal Sell-off.
