Today: Stand up for our public Postal Service. It’s time to protect America’s most cherished institution. We are telling our elected representatives to pass the USPS Fairness Act. Call your member of Congress by dialing (844) 402-1001 right now!
There are several hundred federal agencies, but only one is mandated to pre-fund its employees’ future healthcare benefits: the Postal Service. In 2006, Congress saddled our public Postal Service with an unfair and unsustainable burden of pre-funding retiree health care benefits 75 years into the future!
The USPS Fairness Act would eliminate the pre-funding requirement. Advocates claim that it could single-handedly put the Postal Service out of the red and into the black. The USPS Fairness Act will start to put that right by removing the unfair burden.
