Trump Suggests USPS Cut Retirement, Health Benefits in $80B Savings Package
2.15.2018 - GovExec reports: "Trump's proposals largely mirrored those submitted in his last budget, as well as legislation that has been introduced in Congress. While lawmakers have sought to maintain delivery standards, however, Trump would allow USPS to "reduce mail delivery frequency from six days to five days where there is a business case for doing so." That proposal would likely face pushback in Congress, especially from lawmakers representing rural areas, and even postal management has dropped its proposal to eliminate mail delivery on Saturdays." - Linn's: Budget Proposes Numerous USPS Changes - NALC: Budget Targets Letter Carriers and Their Families - Comments (Count)
