Fighting to Ensure No Local Post Offices are Closed

ROCK TAVERN – Congressman Pat Ryan joined representatives of the American Postal Workers Union (APWU), the National Association of Letter Carriers (NALC), and the National Rural Letter Carriers’ Association (NYRLCA) to fight back against Postmaster General DeJoy’s plan to consolidate mail sorting centers in the Hudson Valley, threatening reduced customer service, safety issues and post office closures.

“If Postmaster General Louis DeJoy thinks he can mess with the post offices in the Hudson Valley, he is sadly mistaken,” said Representative Pat Ryan. “Hudson Valley families deserve only the best service from their post office, but DeJoy is threatening reduced customer service, increased wait times, and post office closures. This is completely unacceptable for both postal workers and the residents of this community. I will keep fighting alongside my friends in labor to make sure every post office stays open, our postal workers are protected, and there are not any service delays.”

“The APWU is extremely concerned about the proposed transfer of the S&DC, specifically as it relates to diminished customer services, increased safety issues, and the possibility of selling and relocating post offices,” said Diana Cline, President of American Postal Workers Union Local 3722. “Congressman Ryan has been working very hard to get answers from leadership in Washington and we want to thank him for getting involved, protecting the people’s Post Office and preserving mail service for our communities. Constituents in District 18 can know they have a true representative in Congress with Pat Ryan as your Congressman!”
