APWU: ‘Dump the Postmaster General’



The APWU Reports:

We charge Donahoe with slowing down the mail, undermining service and demolishing tens of thousands of good jobs by closing processing plants. What say you? Is he innocent or guilty as charged?” The ‘jury’ roared, Guilty!

“We charge Donahoe with dismantling the Postal Service through post office closings, reduction in customer service hours, constant efforts to end six-day and door delivery, subcontracting Motor Vehicle Service work and outsourcing Maintenance Craft duties.” Guilty, the delegates shouted.

“We charge Donahoe with privatizing retail work and transferring decent, union living-wage jobs to low-wage jobs with Village Post Offices and dirty deals like the one with Staples.” Guilty, again!

“We charge Donahoe with selling off historic post offices that belong to the people.” And the ‘jury’ said, Guilty!

President Dimondstein responded to the verdicts with the chant “Hey, Hey, Ho, Ho, Donahoe has got to go! What say you?” The delegates replied in kind, “Hey, Hey, Ho, Ho, Donahoe has got to go.”

“Let’s fight for a new PMG who will champion the institution he – or she – is entrusted to lead.”
