TOP NEWS STORIES
USPS OIG Report on City Carriers Working Past 6PM
9.19.2017 - PostalMag.com reports: The USPS OIG recently investigated 15 randomly selected delivery units in the Bay Valley District.

The investigation found that only 72 percent of city carriers and CCAs in these units returned by 6 p.m. with some on the street as late as 10 p.m. - Comments (Count)
Senator wants firings after postal workers accused of delaying mail delivery
9.19.2017 - The Billings Gazette reports: "Tester wrote the U.S. Postmaster General on Monday after the Office of Inspector General revealed that more than 2 billion mailed items were delayed nationwide over a year's time. Investigators also discovered postal workers manipulating mail delivery time records and inaccurately reporting delayed mail. Several postal employees, including some in Montana, reported mail being intentionally delayed so workers on another shift would have something to do." - USPS OIG Report: Delayed Mail Validation - Comments (Count)
Analysis: Postal woes demand jump in stamp price to 60 cents
9.07.2017 - Associated Press reports: "A 60 cent postage stamp? The U.S. Postal Service would have to boost prices for mailing letters and packages by nearly 20 percent -- the biggest one-time increase in its history -- to avoid bankruptcy and improve delivery service, an industry analysis says. That means the price of a first-class stamp could jump from 49 cents to nearly 60 cents -- if the post office gets the power to raise stamp rates beyond the rate of inflation." - Comments (Count)

Postal Service: More red ink, missed payments as mail slumps
8.10.2017 - AP reports: "The U.S. Postal Service warned Thursday that it will likely default on up to $6.9 billion in payments for future retiree health and pension benefits for the fifth straight year, citing a coming cash crunch that could disrupt day-to-day mail delivery. The service said it expected cash balances to run low by October and to avoid bankruptcy would likely not make all of its payments as required under federal law." - USPS Reports 3rd Quarter Results - WSJ: US Postal System Continues to March Backwards - USPS Reports $16.7bn Q3 Revenue - USPS Financial Woes Swell With $2.1 Billion Net Loss Last Quarter - Comments (Count)
