PHILADELPHIA (KYW Newsradio) — Postal workers held a day of action Tuesday to save throughout the United States in an attempt to save the U.S. Postal Service.

Christine Tarducci was among more than a dozen employees who handed out informational leaflets outside a post office on Bustleton Avenue in Northeast Philadelphia.

Nick Casselli, president of the American Postal Workers Union local, contends it’s no accident. He believes Postmaster General Louis DeJoy and President Donald Trump are trying to sabotage the November election.  

Casselli said, “Mr. DeJoy has to go. He has one agenda in order, and it’s President Trump's agenda, and it’s to cause chaos and try to get President Trump elected.”

On Saturday, the U.S. House of Representatives approved $25 billion in emergency funding for the Postal Service. The leaflets Tarducci and other are handing out ask people to urge their U.S. senators to vote in favor of that measure.
