Sign the petition IF you believe in the right to Organize Labor, IF you think forty four cents first class postage is still a great deal, IF you put people before privitization & profit, IF you have had good service through the years from your Letter Carriers, IF you believe the USPS being the biggest employer of military veterans is a good thing, IF you would like to have 23,000 breadwinners continue to put food on the tables for their loved ones, IF you believe in Public Service as a career choice for our childrens, childrens, children. It only takes a moment to create an account. Congressman DeFazio was the #1 petition signer and I was #830, we need to do so much more,

This morning, Rep. Peter DeFazio (D-OR) announced at an NALC congressional breakfast that he has started a "We the People" petition at the White House's website asking the Obama administration to support H.R. 630 and S. 316 to "save American jobs and allow USPS to remain competitive." These two pieces of legislation are the best blueprints we have for meaningful postal reform in Congress. President Obama should throw his administration's weight behind their passage, to help solve much of the pressing financial crisis and allow the Postal Service to reinvent itself for the next century.

The White House website requires 100,000 signatures within 30 days before the administration will respond, so we need your help.

You can view the petition and have the opportunity to sign it here:
