APWU Joins the fight: Save Historic Post Offices From the Auction Block


The APWU has joined the fight to stop the sale of historic post office buildings.  The union has created a guidelines document that it's distributing to local and state leaders who are engaged in efforts to stop the Postal Service from selling historic post offices.  Finding common ground with communities fighting the sales, APWU President Cliff Guffey and Legislative and Political Director Gary Kloepfer write, “These protests coincide with our efforts to stop consolidations, excessing and reductions in service standards."

The historic preservation review process requires the Postal Service to complete five key tasks prior to selling a historic postal building. These tasks are outlined in Fighting for your Historic Post Office: Guidance for APWU Locals [PDF].  Read more.
