(June 3, 2020) Postal workers and the fight to save the Postal Service hit the airwaves in two important new radio spots.
A new radio ad, which focuses on the threat the USPS, was launched today by the American Postal Workers Union. The nationwide ad buy will include key states, whose senators will cast crucial votes on postal finances.
Meanwhile, actor and social activist Danny Glover who has long been a supporter of postal workers and members of the American Postal Workers Union has also released a radio public service announcement asking the public to join him in expressing active gratitude for postal workers.
Below is his message:
“It’s hard to think of an institution more central to American life than the U.S. Postal Service, maybe that’s why it’s so easy to take it for granted.
I’m Danny Glover, and both my parents were postal workers; and during the holiday season, so was I.
My parents went to work knowing that what they did in our community was essential, and that’s still true today.
The coronavirus has impacted the Postal Service like any other business, finances are tight; but postal workers are still risking their own health on the front lines.
Nothing would have kept my mom and dad from their jobs because it’s more than a job.
Mail keeps American open – for business, for community, and for family.
Join me in expressing gratitude to the men and women of the U.S. Postal Service.”
