On Tuesday afternoon, Aug. 25, 2020, postal workers and allies rallied and picketed at the Burien Post Office, located at 609 SW 150th Street.

Members of the American Postal Workers Union and others engaged in a ‘National Day of Action’ by marching at post offices across the country, including right here in B-Town.

Organizers say they have “three immediate demands of our elected officials and of Postmaster General DeJoy”:

  1. Provide at least $25 billion in immediate support for the Postal Service.
  2. Stop the mail slowdown policies introduced by Postmaster General DeJoy, both before and after the election.
  3. Ensure public confidence in voting-by-mail by providing all necessary resources to provide the most timely delivery of election mail possible.

This is the second rally to be held recently at this Post Office; a previous one was held on Saturday, Aug. 21.
