POSTAL FACTS:
 BloombergBusinessweek interview with NALC Chief of Staff Jim Sauber ran June 6. Region 6 National           Business Agent Pat Carroll was interviewed for a “Workers’ Voice” podcast that was posted to the web on May 31. •

NALC President Fredric Rolando had letters run in two of the country's three largest newspapers on May 30. The largest, The Wall Street Journal, ran Rolando’s letter explaining how the gloom and doom of the USPS about its latest

quarterly report disguises positive financial developments. Rolando also set the record straight for USA Today’s editorial writers—and readers across the country—explaining why the paper’s editorial calling for Congress to cut postal services makes no sense. USA Today has the country’s third-largest circulation. The president was quoted in a May 28 story for the Bloomberg news service about Congress’ “bizarre” plan to raid the Postal Service to shore up the financially troubled Highway Trust Fund. The story noted that most of USPS’ red ink stems from pre-funding, mandated by the very Congress now proposing to take more money from USPS. Associated Press’ story about Rep. Darrell Issa’s latest bill heavily quoted Rolando, cited the bill’s opponents before Issa, and referred to cluster boxes as a “less convenient delivery method.” • Click here to read these and many other examples of how NALC leaders and activists are using the news media to spread the truth about the Postal Service’s financial situation. • Click here to find out how the NALC Communications Department can help members keep both the public and our elected representatives informed.
