Stop Closing of Boca Raton Downtown Station

The American Postal Workers Union, Miami Area Local 100, which represents the Boca Raton Clerks and Custodians would like to speak with you today about the closing of the Downtown Station, located at 170 NE 2 Street, Boca Raton, FL 33432. First, it is important to note that the Postal Service does not rely on tax revenue to perform its operations. In other words, your hard earned dollars do not subsidize Postal Service functions. All the while, we interact with the American Public on a daily basis, providing extradordinary service at a reasonable price. However, the Postal Service, one of the most honored institutions in America, is being systematically dismantled by a management group intent on following corporate ideology that prioritizes downsizing and outsourcing (even at higher costs) rather than growing our business through dedication to service. Postal Service management is fostering the long lines that now pervade local post offices. Why To discourage you from conducting your transactions with a window clerk, forcing you to seek alternatives, and thereby justifying their pre-determined and particularly self-fulfilling staffing cuts. The Postal Service plans on closing hundreds of Post Offices nationwide, including the historic Downtown Station Post Office. Of course, while we are concerned with protecting our members jobs, we are similarly concerned with the quality of service we provide our nation and community. What's most disconcerting is that the Downtown Station is still making revenue. Apparently, the Service believes they can reduce their costs through closures and continue to bring in the same revenue. How you might ask by expecting or rather forcing you the public to use other facilities. Perhaps they should simply state Customer Service is an inconvenience. We believe the Boca Raton Downtown provides a valuable service to the community and the historic Downtown Station Post Office should remain open. Sincerely, The Petition Sign the Petition
