United States Postal Service employees gathered across the country, including Fargo, to protest the Trump administration's proposed plan to privatize the agency.

Local Postal Union members rallied outside of congressman Kevin Cramer's Fargo office, asking him to vote no on the privatization.

The North Dakota Letter Carriers Association President, Terry Jones, says that services like UPS and FedEx don't want the postal service to be privatized either.

"They use our last mile delivery. We're the ones who deliver many, many of their packages every single day of the week," said Jones. "They need us, they want us, they use us every day."

The American Postal Workers Union, which is behind the national rallies, represents 200,000 USPS employees.
