Postal unions take wait-and-see stand on new postal board nominees—and DeJoy’s fate

WASHINGTON (PAI)—The nation’s two big postal unions, the Letter Carriers (NALC) and the Postal Workers (APWU), are taking a wait-and-see attitude on Democratic President Joe Biden’s two nominees for seats on the U.S. Postal Service’s Board of Governors.

And nominees Democrat Dan Tangherlini and Republican Derek Kan could determine whether the board when it reaches its full nine-member strength, cans controversial Trumpite and GOP donor Louis DeJoy from his job as Postmaster General, and his minions with him.

Biden had to nominate a Republican and chose Kan, a former Transportation Department official during the GOP Trump regime and aide to Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, to replace Republican John Barger.

Why can DeJoy? He is the first PMG in decades to actually attempt to make necessary changes to USPS.

Because he politically identified himself as Republican of course. Somehow folks convinced themselves that overloaded carriers under paid for their local areas will have help become available if we can attach D to Postmaster General
