"KEEP IT, IT'S YOURS!" US Postal Workers' Message to Public Denounces Trump Privatization Plan. "Don't sell this national treasure to private interests that will charge more for less service," union says before Tax Day events- APRIL 15, 2019. U.S. Postal Service workers will hold a day of action Monday to reject a Trump White House proposal to privatize the service. "Our message to the public is quite simple. 'The United States Postal Service—Keep it. It's yours!'" said Mark Dimondstein, president of the American Postal Workers Union (APWU). >"Don't sell this national treasure to private interests that will charge more for less service."

>The workers' message, which they plan on delivering outside over 100 locations across the nation, is actually twofold. In addition to rejecting privatization—as well as a "franchising the mailbox" proposal floated by a White House task force, they want to dispel the myth that the USPS is funded through tax dollars. *It's a timely message given that Monday, April 15 is TAX DAY. Putting the postal service in private hands would be bad news for customers, who'd face service cutbacks and higher prices, the union says. To amplify its message, the union also just released a video entitled "We Deliver Almost Anything." "The post office will take almost anything but your tax dollars. But some in the government want to sell off the post office to private corporations. That'd be the end of delivering almost anything, anywhere at a cost you can afford," the narrator says.
