Postal workers launch hunger strikeJune 26, 2012
Ten current and former employees of the United States Postal Service (USPS) today launched a multi-day hunger strike to protest branch closures and layoffs that are supposedly meant to address the service’s shortfalls. At the center of the protest is a law passed by Congress that is responsible for the Postal Service’s ongoing budget problems.
The USPS will start closing 48 mail processing plants in July, and by the time current plans are completed in 2014, it will have closed or consolidated 229 plants, eliminating 28,00 jobs in the process. Those cuts likely wouldn’t have to take place, however, if Congress reversed a law it passed in 2006 mandating that the USPS prefund its pension benefitsfor 75 years, costing the postal service billions of dollars a year.
