NALC joins ‘Grand Alliance’

The NALC has joined a wide range of progressive national organizations in a coalition known as “A Grand Alliance to Save Our Public Postal Service.”

The alliance’s stated goal is to fight for the protection and enhancement of a vibrant USPS, both now and for generations to come. It is made up of a broad group of unions, civil rights, religious organizations and progressive policy advocates that support high-quality public services for all Americans.

“This new alliance is a good complement to the one the NALC and the other postal unions have been working closely with over the past 18 months,” NALC President Fredric Rolando said, “a group made up of postal union and mailing industry stakeholders with a mission to advance in Congress a multi-point postal strategy that includes a comprehensive solution to pre-funding, freedom to offer new products, fair treatment on pension valuations, strengthened service standards and a moratorium on plant closings.”

Letter carriers can expect to see advertisements for this alliance in The Washington Post and Politico.
