Union postal workers rally in Town of Newburgh on Monday
TOWN OF NEWBURGH – Union postal workers are concerned about an
effort by President Trump to privatize the postal service and they rallied
at the busy intersection of Routes 17K and 300 in the Town of Newburgh
on Monday to send their message to the public.
Union Local 3722 President Diana Cline said privatizing the service would
mean a decline in customer service and delivery.
“Right now we are a service so we are not making a profit and they
are looking to privatize to make a profit. Not only would the prices go
up, but if you are in a rural area you are not going to get served.
They are going to take the areas where they are going to be able to make
the most money and be easiest and that is all they are going to serve.
So, service will not get better, it will get more expensive,” she
Cline said local House Members John Faso and Sean Maloney are supporting
a move to keep the service as is.
