Under Serious Postal Stress

That’s USPS, for short.

Speaking of short, the US Post Office is now considering having Congress to let them restructure, which, if approved, would eliminate contract provisions that prevent layoffs and quit the federal employee health and retirement programs. This could have serious ramifications for workers across the government and throughout the labor movement. This opens the door for the USPS to cut around twenty percent of its worrkforce, in an effort to deal with its financial hardships. (Hhhmm, sounds like Wisconsin.)

(Wasn’t there rumblings of shortening mail deliveries to just Monday through Friday awhile back? What happened with that? Not a big enough change?)

The unoffical creed – “Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds” – that people think is official, it’s not.
Will likely change as well I would think.

Anybody want to suggest a new one??
