Proposed USPS Plant Consolidation List Revealed

21CPW.com has posted a copy of the list of processing facilities set to be considered for closing by the USPS. The list was apparently faxed (is the USPS the only company that still faxes things?) to the unions yesterday at 5PM.

Note that there are multiple consolidation options listed in some cases. For example, each of the three plants closest to Boston is listed as a candidate for consolidation into one of the other two. Presumably at least one of them will remain open.

    It would be nice to be able to view this list. All I get is are blank boxes.

  • Charlie Stock

    Heaven forbid they actually mail the lists to the Unions.

  • mike

    OK when you get a chance LOOK at the list. They have North boston MA going into Boston PDC yet on the same page theres Boston PDC going to Middlesex MA?!?! Then therest South Jersey going to PA then theres North jersey going to south jersey?!?! So does that mean all of jersey is going to go to PA. Then theres the PA closings as well so where the heck is the mail going to GO???????THIS IS WHY ARE ARE IN TROUBLE!! NO MENTION OF GETTING RID OF MANAGERS!!!

    Mail Volume is down. They should do a study on why we need the 11 Board of Governors of the United States Postal Service. Waste of money.

    For those of you that think this is a scar tactic, think again. This will happen. Not all facilities listed will be closed, certainly not 300, but I am quite sure that there will be some 150-200 distributions operations closed by 2013. They are right in the fact that the mail volume has dropped due to the W.W.W. And as for you morons that can retire and just don’t want to, keep in mind that your sons and daughters out there looking for a decent paying job are probably living at home with you. Ad as far as anyone over 72 still working with full retirement benefits available to you, you are only working for a few dollars an hour more than what your retirement would give you. Retire already. You are not helping the economy, you are hindering it.

    RETIRED MAIL MAN WITH 37 YEARS…THE POST OFFICE SHOULD SHUT DOWN ALL OFFICES THAT ARE NOT NEEDED. SMALL OFFICES THAT DON’T MAKE A PROFIT SHOULD BE SHUT DOWN CLOSE. WHY KEEP IT OPEN IF IS NOT MAKING MONEY ? SATURDAY DELIVERY ?? NOT NEEDED, TIME TO GO TO 5 DAY DELIVERY. USUALLY I DON’T AGREE WITH MANAGEMENT ON MANY THINGS, BUT I DO AGREE WITH THEM ON SHUTTING DOWN OFFICES THAT DON’T MAKE MONEY–OR NOT NEEDED.. THEY SHOULD OF DONE THAT 5 YEARS AGO. JOSE FROM ILLINOIS.

  • Mike

    Excessed Employee makes all good points to all of you NAYSAYERS!!!!! LISTEN UP OR YOU WILL BE SORRY!!

  • Jose

    A HUGE PROBLEM FOR THE POSTAL SERVICE IS HIGH GAS PRICES, A HUGE PROBLEM… ELECTRIC TRUCKS SHOULD REPLACE THE GAS VEHICLES. ALSO WAY TOO MANY SUPERVISORS THAT ARE NOT NEEDED..

  • MOORE

    Yeah Jose, and i don,t have to many years in the post office,”but possibly enough to get buy.’ I will remember your comment and every time they put a contract in front of my face that cuts your retirement , me and all the younger employees will stick it to ya.

  • mike

    To excesses employee. Sorry to hear about your luck. I know a lot of older folks can’t afford to retire. Or maybe there situation is different than what your blind perception might be.? Neverless, take it easy on the older folks. It because of them we have a job. Put your time in like everyone else. Then you can gripe. Ok.

  • gino

    outsource them all to china like GE did

  • Don

    The USPS needs to focus on raising revenue not cutting service. We lose more money on processing and delivering standard mail which is now are major volume. But they do not care about breaking even. They just call it getting revenue. No other company would give away over 50 percent of their service for a loss. But the one thing that we are suppose to do is service and they want to cut, slow down, close or all three. STUPID MORONS!

  • jimbo

    i have 680 deliveries on my city route in the st louis mo suburbs.we still deliver first class mail to every house.i have 75 businesses.these businesses get a lot of first class mail.if everyone got just 1 first class letter on my route,that would be 300.00 a day.my businesses get a LOT of first class mail.my route alone easily generates 1500.00 to 2000.00 a day by itself.what is the postal management doing with all the money.they say were out of money but they put new tile floors in our bathroom and breakroom when the old ones were fine.once again ,the people that generate all the revenue (CARRIERS AND CLERKS)are made out to be the bad guys when management is a huge cost and burden on our company.WHEN WILL POSTAL MANAGEMENT WAKE UP AND ADMIT THAT IT IS THE PROBLEM.THEY NEED TO QUIT WORRYING ABOUT PROTECTING THIER JOBS AND DO WHAT NEEDS TO BE DONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!SAVE THE POST OFFICE………………….DUH!!!!!!!!!!!!

    All of the consolidations hinge on one thing…the ability to lay off career employees. Until the Congress approves it, the company has to keep paying the employees. We have 3 smaller us… where are they gonna put everyone? On stand-by?

    The Postal SERVICE wasn’t created to be a business it was created to be a SERVICE. How does closing Post Offices in rural areas and suspending Saturday delivery conform to the the code which states: ‘It shall provide prompt, reliable, and efficient services to patrons in all areas and shall render postal services to all communities.’

    Ending Saturday delivery will impair many small businesses who use this as a competitive edge to get there products to people on the weekend, for example in my rural area this is how we get tuxedo’s for weddings, and our local restaurant ships baked goods.

    Stop hurting the public and do what’s right, end the pre-funding and give us back our Service.

    I have always been proud to wear this blue uniform. Having been a single mom of two, it’s afforded me the opportunity to raise two wonderful young men. I also found my awesome husband and many great friends there. Spending more time at work than home, we do have a postal “family”. It hurts to see not only your “family” falling apart, but your entire home-neighborhood-city-and state falling apart, and there is nothing you can do about it.
    If you want to figure out how things can be done better, ask the people who are actually doing the job, not the people who are walking around the office, jingling their change in their pockets, wasting postal money! Really–do we need to pay people to manage someone, to manage someone else, to manage someone else, who is managing us??? We know our job, leave us alone and let us do it! Stop harassing and using scare tactics. The post office is a wonderful organization that has been around a long long time. One would think we would fight to keep and it’s jobs safe.
