From the National Association of Postal Supervisors:
The Postal Service on June 30 announced a major restructuring of its mail processing network with the closure of eighty-two (82) processing facilities throughout the country beginning in January, 2015.
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.
