Congress running out of time to pass priority bills

Lawmakers have about 23 real work days left before the end of the fiscal year to pass USPS reform, comprehensive cyber, DoD authorization and all the 2013 spending bills. Experts hold out little hope even after the passage of the FDA bill and the expected approval of the highway legislation.

USPS offers buyouts to 45,000 mail handlers

The U.S. Postal will offer buyouts and early retirements to more than 45,000 mail handlers, USPS announced Friday. Employees opting for the early-out will receive a $15,000 incentive payment half to be paid in December, and the other half to be paid in December 2013. The new buyout offers are the result of "in depth discussions" between USPS and the National Postal Mail Handlers Union and an agreement that was inked Tuesday.

USPS moves ahead with closings, staff reductions

The nearly bankrupt U.S. Postal Service is moving ahead with plans to close and consolidate 229 mail-processing facilities. Postmaster General Patrick Donahoe (pictured) said the postal service can no longer wait for Congress to decide how to cut postal costs, and the processing network had simply become too big and too costly. The consolidations are expected to reduce the USPS workforce size by 28,000 employees.
