WHAT IS PAC?

Who does the NRLCA-PAC support?

The NRLCA-PAC plays a key role in representing our interests on Capitol Hill by supporting key Senators and Representatives. NRLCA-PAC financially supports:

  • Members who are friendly to our positions

  • Legislators who serve on committees with jurisdiction over issues important to NRLCA

  • Congressional candidates who could support our causes, if elected

The money contributed to NRLCA-PAC aids in each Member's election campaign committee. Campaigns, in turn, use the money to send mass mailings, purchased TV and radio ads, fund "Get Out The Vote" efforts, and support their colleague's campaign efforts.

Why Give to PAC?

The NRLCA-PAC helps make the lives of Rural Letter Carriers better.

In the past, PAC contributions successfully aided in the defeat of efforts to restrict collective bargaining, made sure single piece parcels remained in the market dominant category, and scuttled anti-labor amendments.

To ensure that our voices are heard from now through the next election, NRLCA-PAC must begin preparing now. If you are already a PAC member, thank you for your contribution and please keep contributing. If you are not yet a PAC member and would like to be, or would like more information on PAC, please feel free to contact your state PAC Chair.

How Can I Contribute to PAC?

The following are ways to contribute to the NRLCA-PAC:

PAC Withholding  
Become a supporting member of the NRLCA-PAC by signing up for Withholding or EFT! Both of these donation methods provide an easy way to automatically contribute to PAC each month. Additionally, by knowing how many contributions are coming in advance, Withholding and EFT donations provide an invaluable guideline for the Governmental Affairs Department when budgeting for campaign donations. You can choose to donate as much as you would like, while continuing to donate at local and state meetings.

Withholding deducts donations from each paycheck, using a payroll allotment through the PostalEase system. This is a bi-weekly contribution and is available to all active NRLCA members.

Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT)  
EFT uses a checking account to make a once monthly donation to the PAC. This option is much like using a debit card at the store and will be deducted from your account on the 5th of each month. All you need to sign up is a voided check (no business or farm account checks can be accepted). EFT is available to all active and retired members.

Steward Withholding
If you receive a check from the NRLCA, you can elect to have an amount deducted from each paycheck. Please contact the National Office for information.

Credit Card Donations
PAC Chairs and Vice-Chairs will be able to collect credit card donations. You can also contact the PAC manager at the National Office to make a contribution over the phone.
