National Postal Mail Handlers Union supports Wisconsin union members

National Postal Mail Handlers Union
  National Postal Mail Handlers Union supports Wisconsin union members "...As the situation in Wisconsin continues to boil over, and as several other states have now indicated that they too wish to restrict or eliminate collective bargaining for certain groups of public employees, the National Postal Mail Handlers Union is committed to standing in solidarity with our brothers and sisters in the labor movement.

“This has long ago ceased to be about balancing the budget, if it ever was,” said National President John Hegarty. “In Wisconsin, and now in many other states, this is nothing more than retribution by the right wing against the labor unions for exercising their right to support the candidates of their choosing in last fall’s elections.”

The public-sector unions in Wisconsin have already indicated their willingness to work with the Governor, and to chip in and do their part to balance the budget. Apparently, that’s not good enough for Governor Walker, who is insisting that they also give up most of their collective bargaining rights.

We have fielded numerous calls to the National Office asking how our members can get involved. The AFL-CIO has a link on its website regarding protests going on in cities across the country: http://www.aflcio.org. Jobs With Justice also has a listing of events on their web site at http://www.jwjblog.org/2011/02/worker-solidarity-rallies-planned/. Please be advised that any activity on your part should be off-the-clock.

The NPMHU encourages all of its members to stay informed, and to support these workers in whatever way they see fit. ..." Reference: National Postal Mail Handlers Union
