NALC members from New York on the Hill

On May 18, more than 100 letter carrier activists from New York traveled to Washington, DC, to educate their members of Congress on issues of importance to the New York State Association of Letter Carriers, including NALC’s priority resolutions on six-day mail delivery (H.Res. 15), door delivery (H.Res. 28) and service standards (H.Res. 31). These resolutions have seen broad bipartisan support in previous Congresses, and our New York members advocated on behalf of all NALC members, asking their representatives to support and co-sponsor these resolutions.

As a result of their efforts, almost every New York representative in the House has signed on to at least one resolution, with the vast majority signing onto all three. With nearly the whole House delegation from New York supporting services by lending their names to these measures, it's clear that New York letter carriers have done a good job of educating their representatives and maintaining solid relationships in their districts. NALC's progress toward exceeding a majority of voting co-sponsors for each resolution remains on track, thanks in part to the great work out of New York.
