The Next Postal Vehicle: Tell Them to Build it Union

Oshkosh Defense won the U.S. Postal Service’s $6 billion contract for the next generation of postal vehicles, relying on their reputation for tough military trucks built with union labor.
But instead of using this opportunity to expand quality jobs under a decades-old union contract, the company plans to refurbish a vacant warehouse in another state and build these vehicles without a commitment to union wages or representation.
The next generation of USPS vehicles should be union-made by the UAW members at Oshkosh who have been building tough vehicles for years.
