New USPS Service Performance Reports Show Significant Delays in Delivering the Mail
5.13.2015 - Save the Post Office reports: "The Postal Service has released its service performance reports for the second quarter of the fiscal year, January 1 to March 31, 2015.

The reports can be found on the USPS website and a more complete data set can be downloaded from the PRC website." - Comments (Count)
USPS Continues to Grow Revenue While Losing Money
5.08.2015 - GovExec reports: "For the sixth consecutive quarter, the U.S Postal Service turned an operational profit when accounting for its controllable costs. But the agency still lost a total of $1.5 billion from January through March due to outstanding liabilities. USPS was profitable by $313 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2015, and operational revenue was up $233 million over the same period last year, the agency announced Friday." - USPS Reports $1.5 Billion Loss in Q2 - Postal Service pushes for reforms as finances improve - NALC: Impressive Postal Service Financial Turnaround Continuing in Full Force - Comments (Count)
Does the Postal Service Have Too Many CCAs?
5.03.2015 - Dead Tree Edition reports: "The agency had 3,300 more CCAs in April than allowed in its labor contract with the National Association of Letter Carriers, a report USPS issued last week indicated. The report shows that USPS had 164,582 City Carriers on its rolls in April. Adding 15% of that number plus another 8,000 yields an apparent cap of 32,687 CCAs. But the same report says the Postal Service had 36,074 CCAs." - Comments (Count)
Budget plan calls for $194 billion in unidentified cuts to federal workforce
5.01.2015 - The Washington Post reports: "In March, a House budget resolution proposed increasing the employee share of pension contributions by 6 percentage points of salary, with an offsetting reduction in what agencies pay. That and ending a "special retirement supplement" would save $127 billion over 10 years. Another proposal would require federal employees to pay a greater share of premiums for their employer-sponsored health insurance." - House passes budget without federal benefits cuts - Comments (Count)
