Demand Air Conditioned Trucks for our Delivery Drivers

As heat waves sweep the nation, delivery drivers and mail carriers are at particularly high risk of heat-related illness -- these drivers don't have air conditioning in their vehicles. Temperatures in the trucks can reach 130+ degrees, leaving drivers vulnerable to extreme exhaustion, dehydration and heat stroke. In early July, a USPS worker was found dead in her mail truck in Southern California on a 130-degree day. Petition starters are calling on  USPS, FedEx, and UPS to step up and protect their employees by adding A/C to their trucks. These hard-working, dedicated drivers are serving millions of Americans every day -- they shouldn't have to fear for their own safety at work.
