Take Action on Postal Reform Today!

Last week President Trump issued an Executive Order creating a task force to study the United States Postal Service (USPS) and return recommendations on solutions to create a more stable, financially viable national mail system. The task force is required to return its recommendations within 120 days. Printing Industries of America welcomes the President highlighting the daunting challenges faced by the USPS, particularly as the printing industry plays a critical role in the nation's mailing economy.

Fortunately, there is a set of bipartisan policy solutions awaiting a vote in the U.S. Congress that would bring timely financial stabilization to the USPS and seek to prevent a major rate hike proposal currently under review at the Postal Regulatory Commission. 

This legislation, the Postal Reform Act of 2018 (S. 2629 and H.R. 756), is bipartisan and supported by both the mailing industry and postal labor unions. It contains pragmatic policy solutions that can be implemented now to reverse the downward trajectory of the USPS and to avert postal rate increases. Without legislation, the USPS will be able to raise postage rates dramatically over the next five years. PIA has been beating the drum for postal reform passage at every opportunity and we cannot let up now. Please lend your voice to the postal reform cause. 
Take Action!
The need to fix the USPS has been raised to a level of highest priority by President Trump. PIA urges member companies to seize this opportunity to urge Congress and the White House to pass and sign the Postal Service Reform Act now.

  1. Email or call your U.S. Senators and U.S. Representative to urge support of S. 2629 and H.R. 756. For your convenience, PIA is providing a pre-written email here that will be automatically sent to your lawmakers.
  2. Engage your employees by providing a mobile advocacy opportunity at their fingertips. Ask employees to text FIXUSPS (all caps and all one word) to 52886; they will receive an automatic link to take action and send a message to Congress with just a tap.
  3. Deliver your message face-to-face on Capitol Hill by attending the upcoming Print & Packaging Legislative Summit on June 19-20 in Washington, DC. PIA will schedule meetings for you to personally visit the offices of your elected officials and urge support for S. 2629/H.R. 756. Learn more or register for the Summit at www.printpackagingsummit.com.

Tell Congress it's time to deliver on postal reform! Thank you!
