 Jersey City, NJ- Today, Congressman Albio Sires joined fellow Jersey City Congressman Donald Payne, Jersey City Mayor Jeramiah Healy, and various union leaders at a press conference to speak out against the outsourcing of the New Jersey Bulk Mail Center in Jersey City.  Currently, the United States Postal Service is considering outsourcing all twenty-one Bulk Mail Centers across the country.  The NJ Bulk Mail Center located in Jersey City is the largest of these facilities with over 2,400 employees.    “The taking of good paying jobs with robust benefits and replacing them with lower-paying jobs with sub-contractors will deeply affect many people in the 13th District and it is something that I am totally against,” concluded Congressman Sires.
