U.S. Postal Service proceeds with proposed mail delivery changes


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.
