PAC, Political Action Committee, plays a vital role in our union. There are various aspects of our careers as postal employees which are controlled by the United States Congress. That is where PAC comes in. The NRLCA PAC promotes and supports candidates who support The Rural Letter Carriers of America. Candidates are not supported based solely on party affiliation. The criteria is "CANDIDATES WHO SUPPORT THE RURAL LETTER CARRIERS OF AMERICA".
A lot of people object to the whole concept of political action committees and their function. However, they are a fact of life in the political game. And it is just like a game. You play by the rules or you don't play at all. You do have the option of working to change the rules. But until those changes occur, we operate within the existing parameters.
Now you ask, "What does all this have to do with me"? Let me answer that with another question. "Do you know how much money UPS and FEDEX pour into their PAC's each year"? Compared to them, our PAC is a pittance! Rural Carriers need to keep in mind, there are other companies out there who would love to put you out of work. Nothing personal, just business.
We all need to take responsibility for our actions. Donate to PAC, keep your job. An oversimplification? Very possibly, but who knows? We are living in uncertain times and I feel sure there will be changes in the near future. Let's make those changes work FOR Rural Carriers. DONATE TO PAC TODAY!
ATTENTION !!! VIRGINIA MEMBERS !!!
