Senate Democrats

Conference Call On The 21st Century Postal Service Act (4/27)

On Friday, April 27th at 2:30 p.m. EDT, please join Senator Mark Begich (AK), Chairman of the Senate Democratic Steering and Outreach Committee, Senator Richard Durbin (IL), Assistant Majority Leader, Senator Bernie Sanders (VT), and Congressman Elijah Cummings (MD) for a Tele-Town Hall to discuss the 21st Century Postal Service Act (S.1789).

Senators Begich, Durbin, Sanders and Representative Cummings will discuss the 21st Century Postal Service Act (S.1789), recently passed in the Senate.   The act will put the Postal Service on a path toward financial viability while also protecting the rights of postal workers and preserving adequate postal services nationwide.

The Postal Service is the cornerstone of a $1 trillion mailing industry that accounts for more than 8 million jobs in various sectors.  The Postal Service is in dire financial condition, and has lost $25.4 billion over the past four years.  The bill would prevent the immediate closing of post offices and delay the suspension of Saturday delivery for at least 2 years.

Senators on the call will encourage the House Leadership to support the 21st Century Postal Service Act, once it passed by the Senate.

Call in information:

  • Date: Friday, April 27th
  • Time: 4:00 p.m. EDT

It will be important that you use your personal phone for the Tele-Town Hall meeting (i.e., not a USPS phone) and that you participate on your own time (i.e., not on USPS time).
