In 1970 a wildcat strike was started by letter carriers at Branch 36 in Manhattan, NY led by Vincent R. Sombrotto a regular letter carrier at the time. A short film about the stirke entitled "The Strike at 40" was produced by the NALC and can been seen here

Great Postal Strike Vincent R. Sombrotto


The strike spread nationwide and the NALC won the right to collectively bargin our pay and benefits as a result. Under the leadership of then President of Branch 41 Jack Leventhal, the Brooklyn Letter Carriers joined the strike and were the second branch to so, joining the first Branch 36 of Manhattan and The Bronx. Branch 41 is ceremoniously now known as The Jack Leventhal Branch in honor of his influential tenure as our Branch president. Jack Leventhal
