The NPMHU National office sent a letter to the House Oversight and Reform Committee, letting them know of our support, and they also sent a joint letter with the other Postal Unions to members of the House asking them to vote yes on this important legislation.
As you are aware, H.R. 3076 would repeal the mandate for USPS to prefund its retiree healthcare benefits; require future retirees to enroll in Medicare when eligible; codify six-day delivery; and, offer greater transparency on operations. It is estimated the legislation would create a savings of $458 million over the next ten years.
We ask you to reach out to your representatives, let them know you support this legislation, and they should vote “YES” next week.
You can find a prepared letter at the NPMHU Action center, https://npmhu.quorum.us/, with this message. Please share this request and link with your local members and encourage them to participate as soon as possible since it’s such a tight schedule.
While participating in these grassroots efforts, please keep in mind the restrictions that are imposed by the Hatch Act. Postal and federal employees are allowed to participate in a wide range of political activities. However, no political activity can be done while on postal property or on postal time. This includes using the NPMHU Action Center.
