Carriers Not Happy About New Scanning and Loading Directive
3.16.2018 - reports: "City and Rural Carriers on workroom floors and in online forums are expressing much displeasure about a new time-wasting parcel scanning and loading program that has carriers scanning all parcels while loading in order to determine where to place the parcels in the vehicle." - Comments (Count)
Parcel Bombs Strike Austin
3.12.2018 - Associated Press reports: "Two package bomb blasts a few miles apart killed a teenager and wounded two women in Austin on Monday, less than two weeks after a similar attack left a man dead in another part of the Texas capital. Investigators said the bombings are probably connected, and they are looking into whether race was a factor because all of the victims were minorities." - Suspect blows himself up - Parcel filled with nails and shrapnel explodes at FedEx site in San Antonio - Serial Bomber Switches MO, Uses Tripwire in 4th Attack - USPS Offers Tips to Spot Suspicious Packages - Delivery Services Remain Unaffected - Families of Two Bomb Victims Knew Each Other - Do Not Open Unknown Packages - Not Delivered By a Mail Service - Comments (Count)
APWU Reaches $49 Million Dollar Settlement With USPS on POStPlan Violations
2.24.2018 - The APWU reports: "The dispute was initiated after the Postal Service admittedly failed to honor their agreement that after December 22, 2014, the 'POStPlan' Remotely-Managed Post Offices (RMPOs) open 4 or 6 hours a day would be staffed with bargaining unit clerks, and Level 18 offices would be staffed with career employees. Long after the agreement, Postmaster Reliefs (PMRs) were still working in 4 or 6 hour RMPOs across the country and Level 18 offices reported still using PSEs instead of career employees." - Comments (Count)
Amazon's Rise Has Pushed Mail Clerks and Carriers to the Breaking Point
2.21.2018 - The Nation reports: "Amazon was able to make a deal to ship its packages through USPS at cut-rate prices, because the company preemptively sorts and labels packages by postal route. But transporting and distributing these packages still takes clerks much longer than sorting letters, which can be fed through a machine. If the clerks are delayed, the station's carriers will be delayed in starting routes, which are already longer than ever thanks to the packages filling up their satchels and trucks. Many won't deliver their final box until well after the sun has set." - Comments (Count)
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 - APWU: 2019 Budget Continues Attacks on Postal and Federal Workers - Comments (Count)
