May 2023

After a four-year hiatus, the National Postal Mail Handlers Union hosted its 2023 Legislative Conference for the 118th Congress, May 2nd & 3rd. Presidents, Legislative Representatives, and policy enthusiasts from the Union’s Locals gathered in Washington, DC, to discuss NPMHU’s legislative priorities for the congressional session, and to learn how to effectively lobby their members of Congress in the House and Senate.

We were privileged to hear from Representative Gerry Connolly (D-VA-11) and Senator Gary Peters (D-MI) who both spoke about their work to secure passage of the Postal Service Reform Act. Because of their efforts, the Postal Service is on a path of sustainability that delivers to urban, rural, and suburban communities alike. The Mail Handlers are grateful for their work in Congress and for taking the time to speak to our attendees.

The second day of the conference allowed all newly trained Mail Handlers to meet with Members of Congress and their professional staff. Prior to heading up to the Hill for their scheduled appointments, newly elected LiUNA General President Brent Booker spoke to the group. Having just started his tenure, his address at our conference was his first as General President. Booker echoed General President Emeritus Terry O’Sullivan’s previous messages of empowerment, citing that NPMHU’s fights are LiUNA’s fights, and our Laborer brother and sisters will support our legislative efforts.
