“I thank Chairman Jason Chaffetz, Ranking Member Elijah Cummings as well as other members of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee including Representatives Mark Meadows, Gerry Connolly, Stephen Lynch, Dennis Ross, Steve Russell, Brenda Lawrence, Glenn Thompson and Tim Ryan for introducing, cosponsoring and, with an overwhelming vote, passing out of committee H.R. 756, the Postal Service Reform Act of 2017. This bipartisan bill  is the product of reasonable and fiscally responsible compromise and represents a significant step toward returning the Postal Service to a position of financial stability that all stakeholders agree is necessary.

Enactment of H.R.756 along with a favorable resolution of the Postal Regulatory Commission’s (PRC) 10-year pricing system review and continued aggressive management actions to control costs and grow revenue will enable the Postal Service to meet its financial obligations and continue to provide affordable, reliable, and secure delivery service to every business and home in America. We look forward to continuing to work with the House and Senate and our stakeholders to get a postal reform bill passed this Congress.”

Megan J. Brennan
Postmaster General

All management wants to reform is their bonus/retirement plans

I’ve heard the union brag about how the new time elements fir rural carriers will help us. If you notice, management has already put in cuts. Safety and stand up talks are almost non existent. They say the info is on the scanners. The refuse to fix parcel lockers, etc.
