  • So, what day are they looking to take away?

    Frankly, I see no justification for a delivery reduction. Maybe they should consider a rate increase on all of the bulk mailings; not just a few cents, but really push those rates up to the first-class level. I know I am not the only person who is tired of getting all of the junk mail, especially all of those business envelopes that are actually advertisements. Let the companies (VISA, MasterCard, cable companies, etc.) that put-out all of that paper step-up and take that burden. Sorry, Mr. Postmaster, you haven't done your job in exhausting all avenues before cutting service. Remember, once you start cutting service, people will be forced to look elsewhere. You have that problem now. You're just going to magnify the issue once you reduce the number of delivery days.

  • bulk mail is not the place to start...
    USPService!
    Bulk Mail brings in 75% of the Postal Services revenue - Those ads that you're tired of getting are supporting the USPS. If you raise those rates and people stop mailing bulk mail - the USPS will be looking to lose more than one day of delivery - it will be our death sentence..How about cutting at the top - there are so very many duplicate /triplicate reports that a few of the managerial staff could be best used somewhere else - also . the work force has been cut to the bone - let's try balancing the "chiefs" to actually match the needs by the numbers in the workforce.. A way better place to start - rather than cutting more "service" to the public....

  • When You Allow

    Unions to run your business this is what you should expect. The rest of the Civil Servants don't have the same good benefit as the Postal Service when it comes to cheapter health insurance premiums and this has been going on forever. Now the PS employees want to scream when layoffs happen or they take away a day of delivery. Get over it, you guys have been enjoying this way to long. As a former postal employee, the waste I saw when I worked was criminal and yet the unions still were able to munipulate the powers to be and get the big bucks for their employees and insurance benefits too. Wake up and see why so many union workers are now unemployed because they allowed themselves to be put out to pasture. We all like to make as much as we can when we work, but just stop and look around and see how many car manufacturing plants are no more for the same exact reason. Unions are good and bad and unfortunately cutting a delivery day is necessary now to keep the postal service afloat. And no, I don't like it either, but it is what it is.

  • Saturday delivery
    Sting
    The only good reason the Postal Service has for working on Saturdays now is the delivery of packages and medicines.That would require only a minimum amount of employees for that day and save big money on delivery costs.Either way ,we need to let the Postal Service do what it needs to do to be self sufficient.
