National Call-In Day

Today, June 3, 2015, is National Call-In Day to "STOP FAST TRACK." Please call Congress at 1-855-712-8441 and tell them to STOP FAST TRACK!!

Thank you in advance for your support on this important issue.

 

Rally in Omaha

Congress is working on fast track legislation that would pave the road for new trade deals like the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) and take away our elected representatives' authority to review and amend trade deals. Fast track prevents Congress from improving deals that hurt American workers. We need to stop this now!!

Annual Letter Carriers' Food Drive

The National Association of Letter Carriers (NALC) will conduct its 23rd annual food drive this Saturday, May 9. Letter carriers will collect non-perishable food donations on that day as they deliver mail along their postal routes.

It is the nation’s largest single-day food drive, and is held annually on the second Saturday in May.

With the extreme weather experienced this winter by much of the country, along with the economic struggles many Americans face, the Letter Carriers’ Food Drive never has been more important.

Thank you to our members!!

We just wanted to give a shout out to all the members that stopped by the Union Hall on Thursday to write letters to our Congressman to ask him to vote NO on Fast-Track for TPP (Trans-Pacific Partnership). TPP is a very important issue for U.S. citizens, not only those in the workforce now, but also our future generations. It's bad for America in that more U.S. jobs will be sent offshore, foreign corporations will get veto power over U.S. laws, and there will be no more "Buy American" laws.

According to reports from right-leaning Fox News, Republicans in statehouses across the country "are plotting a tough new campaign" in 2015 to attack labor unions and weaken their political influence. "The accumulated gains by Republicans in state legislatures will certainly increase pressure on, and within, the GOP caucuses to expand right-to-work laws," Louis Jacobson, state politics columnist for Governing magazine, told FoxNews.com.

Rent the Union Hall

Union members and retired union members can rent the union hall for $75.00. It's a great place for a wedding shower, baby shower, prenuptial dinner, party, any gathering where you need a larger place to hold your get-togethers. We have a nice area downstairs with a kitchen that has an oven, microwave oven, and a refrigerator, plus two working television sets! Don't forget us the next time you are planning a party. It's inexpensive and very easy. Just call Katy Cummins at the hall any Monday through Friday from 9a - 1p. at 402-476-7470 to reserve your date.

United Support & Memorial for Workplace Fatalities (USMWF)

USMWF will be hosting the second non-timed USMWF's 5k Family Fun Run/Walk on Saturday, April 25, 2015. We will run or walk in memory and honor of the men and women that worked hard and ultimately gave their lives making this great nation what it is today and what it will be in the future. This fundraiser will allow us to reach out to families locally, statewide and nationally and offer them support and guidance during their grief process.
