    A vote of confidence: California Rep. Darrell Issa, the lead Republican on the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, which oversees the United States Postal Service, recently addressed NALC representatives at the gathering of state chairs. This Youtube video shows the bipartisan support the Postal Service and the nation's letter carriers are seeking from the new Congress.

    Five-day delivery not the best economic solution: President William H. Young has released a statement in response to media reports that Postmaster General Jack Potter is seeking to curtail the Postal Service to five-day delivery. "The continued appearance of letter carriers delivering the mail to the doorstep of every home and business and bank and credit card company six days a week is absolutely essential to economic recovery." In his statement, Young makes the case for an alternative economic solution: H.R. 22. Statement | H.R. 22

    RE: Posting Of Vacant Routes

    Dear Stewards,

    Over the last couple of weeks, it has come to the attention of this office that management is not posting routes that have become vacant, either by a retirement or a letter carrier bidding a route after route adjustments. This is another blatant violation of the National Agreement by management.

    Is It Finally Time to Retire The Postal Service?
    Please share this article with your coworkers - There is a company trying to electronically do what we do, therefore, eliminating our job!

    Letter to Editor of Delco Times
    By Jim McCullough: Branch 725 President

    To label this individual a letter carrier would be a huge insult to the over 200,000 dedicated men and women letter carriers throughout this country who deliver the mail six days a week, 52 weeks a year. This person is not, I repeat, not a letter career. He is what the Postal Service calls a transitional employee (T.E.). The T.E. is not a full-time employee of the Postal Service. They receive no benefits and are only used until certain programs kick in.

    Why the Employee Free Choice Act is so important
    By Trapper John....Referred by Rhonda Massari

    Why? Because the Employee Free Choice Act is, quite simply, not only the most necessary and important labor law reform in 75 years -- it's the cornerstone of any serious effort to reestablish a real middle-class in the United States. And Wal-Mart, and Grover Norquist, and the Chamber of Commerce, and the institutional Republican Party don't want a real, secure middle class. They want a docile, subservient class of workers who are utterly dependent on the tender mercies of their employers for every meal.
