Rally to Support the Post Office

Tomorrow (Tuesday, Sept. 27), from 5 to 5:45pm, on the Capitol Square at the corner of King and South Pinckney Streets, postal workers and their friends and supporters will rally to draw attention to the best way for Congress to save the US Postal Service. There are those in Congress who are trying to do to the USPS what Scott Walker has done to Wisconsin. If you don't want to see the postal unions broken and the post office dismantled and privatized, please join us. We need your support!

Rallies are being held all over the country, most of them from 4 to 5:30pm local time. But here in Madison, the rally is scheduled to begin at 5pm and will last about forty-five minutes. Rallies will also be held (from 4 to 5:30pm) in Kenosha, Janesville, and Milwaukee.

The American Postal Workers Union, the National Association of Letter Carriers, the National Postal Mail Handlers Union, the National Rural Letter Carriers' Association, and the National Association of Postal Supervisors are joining together for this nationwide event. Here's what the unions have to say in a nutshell:
