We, the postal workers of America, in order to form a more perfect union, establish this Constitution.
We, who come from the diverse crafts and divisions, believe that in unity there is strength.
We believe that all members of labor have the right to economic, political and social justice.
That all men and women have the inherent right to earn a living and to be justly paid for the services they perform.
That all workers have the right to expect to have decent shelter, food and clothing.
That they have the right to see that their children have the best education. The investment of the worker's lifeblood in giving service gives him that right.
We further believe that all men and women are created equal with the right to determine their own destiny and to participate in the forces and events that affect them.
We believe that all workers have the right, regardless of race, color, creed, sex, sexual orientation, nationality, handicap, political affiliation, age, or religion to hold their heads high and to have respect for themselves as individuals.
We believe, therefore, that in the spirit of the Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution, all men and women are free and have the right to come together to promote the common cause of all.
We also believe that all members have certain basic rights within our Union and shall be secure in those rights. In order to give life to the Preamble to this Constitution, and to the Constitution itself, the Members' Bill of Rights has been established.
