Southeast Pennsylvania Merged Branch
Item to the July 2020 Postal Record
Eric K. Jackson, Branch 725 Vice- President & Scribe
Happy Fourth of July to all of our proud members. We are enduring a most trying time in our country.
And letter carriers, along with this great country, are strong. First, we
adjust, then we excel. And that's what you've done.
During the pandemic, the greatest threat to our livelihood has been the financial hit taken by the
company. This made the USPS seek funding in the first round of stimulus
funding. While most private industry received billions, our company was only offered a $10 billion loan.
NALC, along with all your help, went on to lobby Congress for
monies that we deserve be granted, not loaned. There has been an email / letter-writing campaign daily.
The death scenario was / is that without additional funding, the P.O.
would run out of money by the end of September. And therefore, all your hard work with political activism
is so vital. Whether you are active or retired, there are scenarios
out there that can have a grave impact on your future. So, please keep up your good work of writing your
representatives when asked by NALC through the NALC Member
App. If you have not downloaded it to your phone or computer, please do so. It allows you to stay aware
of all things pertaining to your job.
The saving gracer has been parcels. They are up more than 50 percent. But parcels alone will not sustain
our futures. You will! Your work ethic, integrity and political
activism to lobby on our behalf will be key.
So, please understand very clearly, you are the company's most valuable resource. You are the engine.
You have been our saving grace. And while "hero" is thrown
around loosely now, your resiliency exemplifies what it means. Through rain, sleet, snow and the bull*^t
management decisions, you endure!

your county office by 5 p.m. on May 26, 2020. You must be a registered voter to submit an application to

Political Liaison - Belinda Tridente
Friends this might be the most critical time in the history of the US Postal Service!
The NALC is asking you to call-write-email your US House Representative and US Senators. Implore them
to provide the US Postal Service with full funding in the next
economic stimulus bill.
Unfortunately, without full funding, this pandemic crisis may well cause the USPS to run out of the
resources that are necessary for us to provide universal service to every
home and business in America and our territories.
We are faithfully delivering critical items including medications and checks throughout this pandemic.
Please help us get through this rough time. Have your family and friends call-write-email their US House
Representative and US Senators too!
