On August 14th, 50 U.S. senators sent a letter to the leaders of the Senate Appropriations Committee urging congressional action to preserve service standards and prevent the closure or consolidation of mail processing facilities. 

Over the past few weeks, APWU members and allies sent thousands of messages and phone calls to their senators’ offices asking them to sign on to the letter.  Together, our collective calls to action were crucial in getting so many of our senators to sign on!
