MA­JOR POSTAL WORK­ERS UNION EN­DORSES BI­DEN

Chicago Sun-Times - - NATION/WORLD -

WASH­ING­TON — A ma­jor union rep­re­sent­ing U.S. postal work­ers has en­dorsed Demo­crat Joe Bi­den for pres­i­dent.

The Na­tional As­so­ci­a­tion of Let­ter Car­ri­ers, which rep­re­sents 300,000 cur­rent and re­tired work­ers, said Thurs­day that Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump has long been hos­tile to the post of­fice. But his ac­tions have es­ca­lated since the start of the pan­demic, with the ad­min­is­tra­tion tak­ing “steps out­side of the pub­lic eye to un­der­mine the Postal Ser­vice and let­ter car­ri­ers,” said union Pres­i­dent Fredric Rolando.

Bi­den, on the other hand, “is, was and will con­tinue to be a fierce ally and de­fender of the United States Postal Ser­vice,” Rolando said in a state­ment an­nounc­ing the en­dorse­ment of the for­mer vice pres­i­dent and his run­ning mate, Ka­mala Har­ris.
