Resolution on Replacing Postmaster General DeJoy


WHEREAS, new Postmaster General Louis Dejoy’s first months in office were marked by changes in policy that, in the name of “efficiency” delayed mail and undermined public confidence in the Postal Service, and

WHEREAS, these changes were halted by public outcry, congressional inquiries, and court orders, yet these same destructive changes could resume anytime after the 2020 election ends, and

WHEREAS, proposed changes, such as cuts in retail hours and delaying mail to cut overtime, in the name of “efficiency” sound like the preliminary steps to privatization and the weakening of unions that the Trump White House has supported, and 

WHEREAS, the Postal Service should be preserved as a public good and part of our basic infrastructure, with a Universal Service Obligation to serve everyone, which private companies would never want to have to do, and 

WHEREAS, Postmaster General Dejoy has also been compromised by massive political donations just prior to his appointment, by allegations of campaign finance violations, and by charges of conflict of interest regarding ties to postal competitors, therefore be it

THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, that this body urges that Postmaster General Louis Dejoy either resign or be removed from office, to be replaced by a Postmaster General who is committed to supporting a strong, public postal service, and who will defend it from attack rather than attacking it.
