TOP NEWS STORIES
Letter Carriers: Where's The Contract?
4.26.2017 - PostalMag.com reports: "Letter Carriers across the U.S.A. are beginning to grumble about the lack of a new contract. The last contract expired almost a year ago on May 20th, 2016. The length of time, without the contract going to arbitration, is unusual. Carriers are concerned about missing out on wage increases and cost-of-living allowances." - Comments (Count)
Postal Rate Fight Continues as Publishers Battle USPS "Stupidity Tax"
4.12.2017 - Publishing Executive reports: "FSS prepared Periodicals flats in FY2016 cost an average of almost 17 cents per piece more than CR [carrier route] presorted flats cost in non-FSS zones," Stralberg wrote, citing the USPS's own data.

House Panel Approves Postal Service Finances Legislation
3.17.2017 - The Hill reports: "The bill would automatically enroll eligible USPS retirees in Medicare, make reforms to the Postal Service's governance, bolster the use of centralized delivery, allow the USPS to increase postal rates by 1 cent for a first-class stamp and to provide non-postal services to state and local governments." - APWU: Postal Reform Act Moves Forward - Postal Service Reform Act Takes Another Step Forward in House - Comments (Count)
Trouble at the Kansas Stamp Cave
3.02.2017 - Linn's Stamp News Reports: "The way United States postal inspectors are telling it, Khalid M. Hussain, the longtime manager of the Stamp Fulfillment Services center in Kansas City, Mo., ran a rogue operation for years that sold U.S. mint stamps overseas at deep discounts. At the same time at his offices in the underground stamp center known as "the caves," Hussain was giving away, or selling at discounted prices, philatelic products sent to his facility for disposal or destruction." - Comments (Count)
House panel displays bipartisan unity over bill to save the Postal Service
2.07.2017 - Washington Post reports: "Much of what the bill would do is in the weeds of postal finances, dealing with the nitty-gritty of health benefits for employees and retirees, pensions, governance and contracting. Postmaster General Megan J. Brennan said the provision requiring postal retirees to fully participate in Medicare is key because that "would essentially eliminate our unfunded liability for retiree health benefits," which has been a major driver of postal doldrums." - Video and Testimony - NALC: All Four Postal Unions Urge Committee to Adopt Legislation - Postal Unions Agreeing to Have Postal Employees Segregated Into Separate FEHBP Risk Pool (PDF, page 5) - APWU: A Positive Step Forward - Comments (Count)
