The Solidarity Charter

Solidarity Charter for Postal Workers United Against Tyranny

We, the undersigned postal workers and postal unions of the United States, hereby agree to the following points:

One, that the President has overstepped his constitutional authority to execute the laws passed by Congress, through his recent signing statement attached to the Postal Accountability and Enhancement Act of 2006, in which he states that the Executive Branch may open mail without a warrant in "exigent circumstances";

Two, that the President has admitted publicly that he's used an earlier signing statement to justify unconstitutional searches of Americans without warrant;

Three, that we strongly disagree with this interpretation of the Constitution, and will work to pressure Congress to investigate this statement to determine whether or not the President has actually acted in violation of the law as written;

and Four, that we will also work to encourage the public that the privacy of their communications are secure, as long as the workforce of the Postal Service continues to be well-trained, highly ethical, and accountable to the laws and the Constitution of the United States.
