      Jeffrey, the last 2 were responsible for post plan. Still paying out grievance monies that exceed any savings ever garnered by cutting 4800 postmaster jobs and cutting service to the public with part time post offices. That is but one example of their damage.

    The post office , 7645 limestone dr Gainesville 20155 , we have over 50 people in same building, 60% they don’t wear mask and talk stay close in 3 feet, the postmaster, he didn’t wear mask that why they don’t follow to wear, I am still wear the mask every days, I am so scare and worry about them

  4. As a 25 year employee, we need cuts cut 1/3 middle management, close 1/3 post offices, we pay rent on buildings 40 years old, and 25 % rural routes cut 4 to 6 hours off. Eliminate city routes hour pay, make evaluated pay, no plant overtime, more even flow of product

  5. Get rid of the unions! That is where the blood sucking began! Than alot of people whose job has been saved that should have been fired can get off the payroll! Make all city routes rural routes! Push out all the people eligible to retire! Most of them are a waste of space!

    • Troy – you are 100% correct on getting rid of the unions. The Post Office has a union problem. This has been posted many times in last couple years but nobody with any clout that can do anything about it seems to care. Don’t people see this….. The PO hands are tied and can’t run a good business when there are 7 unions running the business and have their hands in everything the PO does. If the PO was smart and had a good handbook and set of rules for employees, they would not need collective bargaining and could just pay employees as other Federal employees get. That would save the PO possibly billions every year. At this point it may be the PO best interests to buy out older employees and hire younger people and also hire more part time or subs since wages are the main problem for the PO. An honest days pay for an honest days work is a good motto. Hopefully the new PO General boss can work miracles and make the PO profitable again to at least break even again or better.

    It’s good to see so many experts here who seem to know exactly what needs to be done to “help” the PO to survive.

  7. The USPS has NEVER needed help from Government since becoming Independent! Since becoming Independent Congress passed a law that USPS had to pre-fund 75 years in future for future Employees that aren’t even born yet. Remove pre-funding, reform, limit OT, limit bonuses for upper management, consolidate unions, and finally innovate more ways to generate money (postal banking, charge amazon 1.50- 3.00more per parcel). UPS has teamsters as union, they only do parcels and the drivers make $32 per hr.

    I’ve been with the Postal Service since 1994 , what I can see is we are too top heavy , too many chiefs and not enough Indians !! I’m a rural carrier and we busy our behinds delivering mail and parcels everyday and then turn around and management nit picks at us , backing ? Too much time in the office ?? Really ?? The upper management needs to come show us how it should be done !!! We do our jobs as safely and as best we can !! I hope he starts cutting , from the top !!!

  9. Sounds like his company has the same policies as the Post office. over 60% of our workers are considered temporary. No one individual can donate 2 million dollars to one candidate. Sounds like scare tactics. We aren’t getting any time off for the pandemic. I’m not sold on this guy, just think we need to wait and see. Not much we can do anyway. Keep informed on legislation and make are voices heard.
