There are seven different unions that represent USPS employees. More

  1. And you think that the Postal Service is bad now, just wait till the communists/socialists get full control of it. We’d all be lucky to get a notice shipping us off to the Gulag or a draft notice drafting all able bodied and even non able bodied individuals over 16 into the New People’s Army. And say goodbye to any form of freedom ever again.

  2. Which is why government unions used to be illegal!

  3. I’m going to wait and see if there’s push back from the workers. I’ve got friends that are UAW workers that are sick and tired of the union representing them in politics. Most strongly disagree with the union’s position.

  4. Figures. Most of our local letter carriers are foreign nationals. WTF do they know about America?

  5. Unions are socialist constructions, so it follows.
    When the National Socialist took power in Germany it took them about 30 seconds to completely emasculate the Unions. The Party seized the Unions’ assets, forbade strikes (on punishment of death), and “guaranteed” jobs by forbidding job mobility. The Party had already made sweetheart deals with the Unions to place Party Members in important positions in return for empty promises.
    (Neumann, “Behemoth”)

    Lazy AND greedy is a bad combination – from which all Unions officials seem to suffer.

    izlamo delenda est …

  6. Of course, after 2 Bernie backers tried shooting their political enemies, who else are they gonna endorse? Going Postal!

  7. They know where we live. Lets hope they don’t try to leverage that and get a bunch of Bernie Bros hurt or killed trying to round us up for the camps.

  8. Bad_Brad, in my neck of the woods, Indian women work the counter, while the AA’s sort & carry—I mean, deliver—the mail. Hell, they probably all carry, too.

  9. Of course they want a commie to protect them.
    The old USPS guys are almost all gone and the accurate and
    timely mail deliveries went with them. About 30% of the
    current employees have some pride in their work and try.
    The rest aren’t worth spit. You can see who by watching
    them talking on their cell phones while trying to walk
    and sort their mail by address or getting a case of
    the red ass over having to carry a heavy package.
    The females are the worst on this.
    If I want something “fer certain” delivered, I pay UPS.

  10. Govt workers shouldn’t be allowed to vote.

    They always vote for more free shit and more money for themselves.

    govt will never vote for less govt.

  11. This is all because that Mar-a-Lago Bernie supporter went postal, isn’t it?

  12. The mail service in Canada has also declined, but more from people no longer using it. The last time, the union just “threatened” to go on strike was July 2016 and businesses just said “That’s it!”. All invoices are sent by e-mail, to accompany the previous purchase orders, all payments are done by e-transfer or wire transfers between banks. I only use the national postal service to send the occasional Christmas or birthday card. Eventually, even these will go by the wayside as more stationery stores close.

  13. What’s the going hourly salary for a postal worker in Cuba or Venezuela?

  14. Please remember: not everyone agrees with their unions!!!! The rank and file still have their minds and votes. My husband is member of rural letter carrier’s union, they haven’t made an endorsement, and even if they did, it would not be his. Same for me, I am ‘stuck’ in a union that I am sure will endorse any of one of the leftists nominated, but that will NOT be my vote. Proud Deplorables here in Ohio.

  15. I quit the union in response to Barky getting elected with their connivance.

  16. Can’t wait ’till Amazon builds it’s own carrier service & all those Sunday services from the post office stop … all that taxpayer-funded double-overtime gets stopped

  17. I cannot remember the last time I sent a letter or a bank check
