In a statement, American Postal Workers Union (APWU) President Mark Dimondstein slammed President Donald Trump and his administration in response to a Washington Post report that the president is using the coronavirus pandemic to cripple the United States Postal Service (USPS).
Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) won another victory in the battle against privatizing mail delivery as the Postal Service has quietly backed off of a plan to close 82 mail processing plants.
People across the country saw what package delivery will look like if the Postal Service is privatized after both UPS and FedEx ruined Christmas by being unable to delivery holiday packages on time.
One of the reasons Republicans drool to end the USPS is that it delivers millions of parcels every single day, and at a low cost that keeps private carriers' (FedEx and U.P.S.) prices in check.
