Saving Postal Jobs & Services From A Management Gone Postal
Community/Labor United for Postal Jobs & Services joined with postal
workers to rally to save postal jobs and the services provided. The
plan is to shut down 4,000 post offices, eliminate 223 which is half of
the mail processing centers nationwide , end Saturday mail delivery
and fire 220,000 postal workers. In N.Y.C. alone, Postmaster General
Donahoe wants to eliminate 34 post offices. There is no fiscal crisis
that warrants these cuts, which will destroy the post office system. But
there is a Congressionally manufactured crisis caused by its imposition
of onerous and unnecessary financial mandates on the Post Office.
Unless we stop Congress, the public postal system will be destroyed
and Wall Street will swoop down and sell it to corporate vultures.
WHO WE ARE
WORKERS OF THE WORLD TUNE IN! Introducing "Building Bridges: Your Community & Labor Report"
Our beat is the labor front, broadly defined, both geographically and conceptually. We examine the world of work and workers on the job as well as where they live. We examine the issues that affect their everyday lives, with a particular sensitivity towards human rights abuses, environmental concerns and the U.S. drive for global domination. We record their global struggles and provide analysis of their efforts to empower themselves and transform society to provide greater democratic, human, social, political and economic rights. Each program consists of feature stories, generally interviews, within a historical context, often accompanied by sound from demonstrations, rallies or conferences, and complemented and enhanced by poetry and instrumental or vocal -- people's culture.
Over the years Building Bridges has produced a weekly one hour program, Mondays from 7-8 PM EST, covering local, national and international labor and community issues over radio WBAI-Pacifica 99.5 FM in New York. We also produce half hour version, Building Bridges National, which is distribtued to over 40 broadcast and internet radio stations.
