Postal Workers Rally in Erie and Across the United States
On tax filing deadline day, U.S. Postal workers gathered in Erie and across the Country to rally against the idea of privatizing service.
Pete Singler organized the local rally for Union 269. Union members carried signs along East 38th Street, sending the message of zero tax dollars go toward post office service operations. Union members call it a public service, which was never designed to make a profit.
Joe Szocki, President of the local American Postal Workers Union, said "postal service is not for sale".
The Union also believes privatizing local service would result in higher costs, reduced mail days and the end of delivery to every address.
