    Following years of debate to build consensus, it is time to pass this vital and carefully constructed legislation, a bipartisan compromise bill that will bring financial stability to the Postal Service. The legislation includes key provisions of importance to the men and women who are the backbone of the Postal Service. First, H.R. 3076 eliminates the mandate that the Postal Service pre-fund its retiree health care benefits decades in advance, a requirement asked of no other public or private agency. Second, this legislation adopts private-sector best practice by maximizing the integration of postal annuitants into Medicare—a program to which the Postal Service and its workers have contributed more than $34 billion. Additionally, the legislation benefits the public by codifying the mandate to provide six-day mail delivery, which has been required by an Appropriation rider since the 1980s. Some 159 million business and residential customers rely on six-day delivery. The Postal Service is a vital public institution, self-sustaining and non-taxpayer-funded. Enactment of this legislation will restore and strengthen its financial stability, allowing it to improve service and respond to the evolving needs of American businesses and the families it serves.

  • Vote on Postal Service Reform Act, H.R. 3076, NEXT WEEK
    Posted On: Feb 04, 2022

    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.
