Senate debates future of Postal Service
Monday - 3/26/2012, 10:13am EDT
The bill — S.1789 — would:
- Allow USPS to offer buyouts to reduce staff by as much as 100,000 employees.
- Allow USPS to negotiate a new health insurance plan with its unions.
- Spread out the Postal Service's $5.5 billion annual payments to prefund retiree health benefits, and
- End Saturday mail delivery.
The Postal Service lost $5.5 billion in fiscal 2011 and expects to lose $17 billion by 2015.
A House subcommittee will hold a hearing Tuesday on how a Postal Service-run health plan could help its financial crisis. Postmaster General Patrick Donahoe will offer testimony.
