Postal workers participate in a Save America's Postal Service rally September 27, 2011 in Washington, D.C.. The workers called on Congress to pass H.R. 1351, which would allow $6.9 billion in pension overpayments by postal workers to be used to pay this year's pension obligations.

Postal employees across the nation are rallying to save postal branches throughout the country.

On Tuesday, Sept. 27, members of the four Postal Service employee unions (APWU, NALC, NPMHU, and NRLCA) will rally in every congressional district from 4:00 p.m. to 5:30 p.m.

The rallies are meant to encourage Congress to address the financial crisis facing the Postal Service by passing H.R. 1351. If passed, the legislation could help save critical Postal Service funding.
