Veterans, Postal Workers Launch Ads to Stop USPS Layoffs

A postal workers' union and VoteVets.org are banding together to tell Congress to stand by veterans as the House Oversight Committee is set to vote on a bill they say would force the postal service to fire workers, many of whom are veterans.

The coalition has bought full-page ads in today and tomorrow's NJ Daily, Politico, The Hill and CQ Today, that draw attention to the fact that the U.S. Postal Service is the largest civilian employee of veterans. They are part of a larger campaign from the American Postal Workers Union to stop Congress from cutting the U.S. Postal Service's budget.

The groups did not release how much they spent on the campaign.
