NAPS Opposes Closures of 82 Processing Facilities



The National Association of Postal Supervisors (NAPS) has announced it is against USPS plans to close eighty-two mail processing facilities across the nation as part of a major restructuring of the Postal Service’s mail processing network beginning in early 2015. NAPS states:

NAPS opposes the Postal Service’s plan because it will slow down the nation’s mail service, further dismantle the distribution network and eliminate middle-class jobs. The plan will largely eliminate local overnight First Class mail delivery currently the national standard for all local deliveries. Veterans also will be hurt, since nearly twenty percent of the Postal Service’s workforce is comprised of veterans. Veterans are not entitled to any preference or future employment rights when postal facilities are outright closed.
