WASHINGTON – The Executive Committee of the Transportation Trades Department (TTD), AFL-CIO, is committed to put a stop to outsourcing at the United States Postal Service (USPS) and protecting the income and retirement security of public transit workers.

According to the TTD, the United States Postal Service is jumping on the outsourcing and privatizing bandwagon at the expense of good jobs, safety and security, and reliable delivery of basic services. According to a new USPS program, all new mail delivery locations will be considered for outsourcing to companies that often provide low wages, no benefits, and have no equivalent background check requirements.
