It’s official: the U.S. Postal Service is out with a Federal Register notice today on proposed changes to mail delivery standards tied to its plans for closing several hundred processing plants with a loss of some 35,000 career jobs.
The notice adds detail to what USPS officials have already revealed; of particular interest to postal workers, the notice (in a footnote) says that the downsizing plans should not affect network distribution centers, air mail centers, remote encoding centers and international service centers, although those facilities are a small minority of the total.
The 30-day public comment period runs through Oct. 21.
Why is the postal service hiring so many pse’s if they really want to cut their workforce?
Because most PSE’s work circles around the regulars, I was asked how many people work in my building, and after a little mental calculation I said “about half of them”
Look for more foreclosed homes on the market soon.
This is the first initiative the USPS needs to undertake if they are to start changing their antiquated business model and run more like a business.
