Going Postal!

Organize to Defend Our Postal Service & Vermont Jobs

At a time when we desperately need to create decent-paying jobs, the Postal Service plans to slash 100,000 jobs, shut down many rural post offices, and end Saturday mail delivery, most immediately closing over 250 mail processing centers. This includes closing the White River Junction center with the loss of 245 jobs, and threats to close Essex Junction. This would slow first-class mail, ending next-day deliveries, and put the postal service into a death spiral.
