Young Tells Congress Survival of Postal Service Could Depend on Passage of Relief Legislation
Date:3/25/2009

WASHINGTON, March 25 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Letter Carriers union President William H.

Young said that even before the financial meltdown hit last fall, NALC was working with the Postal Service to cut costs, negotiating an expedited route adjustment system that has cut about 10,000 carrier jobs through attrition and resulting in a $1.3 billion savings to the Postal Service this year.

"But we cannot use cost-cutting measures alone to restore our financial health," Young said. "Given the scale of the crisis before us, we need Congress to act as well."

In the short-term, Young said that means enactment of H.R. 22 introduced by Reps. John McHugh (R-NY) and Danny Davis (D-IL) -- and co-sponsored by nearly 200 other Hou
