June 2, 2009

The president of the 300,000-member National Association of Letter Carriers (AFL-CIO), today applauded the announcement by President Obama that he will nominate Rep. John M. McHugh (R-NY) to be the next Secretary of the Army.

Letter Carriers’ union President William H. Young issued the following statement:

“Throughout his distinguished congressional career, John McHugh has been a key leader in bipartisan efforts to resolve many of the concerns of active and retired letter carriers. He also has worked diligently to provide economic stability to the U.S. Postal Service so that it can continue to provide universal and cost-effective service to all Americans.

“President Obama should be congratulated for his selection of Representative McHugh for this important position. I am confident that the congressman will provide the same level of bipartisan leadership as Secretary of the Army as he did while in Congress.”

The 300,000-member NALC union represents active and retired city delivery letter carriers of the U.S. Postal Service throughout the nation.
