The National Postal Mail Handlers Union Political Action Committee (NPMHU PAC)


The NPMHU PAC is comprised of Mail Handler Members, Stewards, and Officers, who are committed to ensuring that our voices are heard on important political issues. It contributes to campaigns of candidates for and incumbents of Congress who repeatedly demonstrate “concern for working people and for [the] aims and objectives of the NPMHU and the entire trade union movement.”


The PAC is non-partisan in its operations, and, by federal law, is financed completely through voluntary contributions from Members and groups who subscribe to the objectives of the Mail Handlers PAC. Your Union needs your active involvement in contributing to the Political Action Committee to assist candidates who will work to protect the wages and benefits of all Mail Handlers. Our PAC membership is small but growing larger.
