APWU President Cliff Guffey will appear — once again — on The Ed Show on MSNBC tonight, Oct. 13, at 10 p.m. EDT. The House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform is considering the Issa-Ross postal bill today, and is expected to approve the legislation, which the union president has called “a reckless assault on postal service and postal employees.”
Guffey will discuss the ongoing campaign to save America’s Postal Service. The APWU is vigorously opposing the Issa-Ross bill (H.R. 2309), and is organizing support for H.R. 1351, which would provide the USPS with much-needed financial stability without any burden on taxpayers. The bill, which was introduced by Rep. Stephen Lynch (D-MA), has 226 co-sponsors, including 29 Republicans.
Schultz gave an enthusiastic defense of a public Postal Service on his Oct. 12 program.
