Why Danny Glover Is Trying To Save The Postal Service

Actor Danny Glover’s ties to USPS run deep.

Glover’s ties to USPS run deep. The video shows that his father, mother, brother and sister were postal workers. As a teenager, Glover worked for USPS during winter breaks from school.

Over a montage of family photos, Glover reflects, “Working for the Postal Service enabled my parents to buy their first home. They took great pride in their work.”

Several unions -- including the APWU -- strongly oppose USPS’s efforts to privatize transactions, consolidate facilities and drop day of delivery services.

APWU President Mark Dimondstin has made the APWU’s battle even bigger by galvanizing 64 national organizations to form “A Grand Alliance to Save Our Public Postal Service.”
