TOP NEWS STORIES
Trump Suggests USPS Cut Retirement, Health Benefits in $46 Billion Savings Package
5.24.2017 - GovExec reports: "While lawmakers have sought to maintain delivery standards, however, Trump would allow USPS to "reduce mail delivery frequency where there is a business case for doing so." That proposal would likely face pushback in Congress, especially from lawmakers representing rural areas, and even postal management has dropped its proposal to eliminate mail delivery on Saturdays."

Trump's Budget Calls for Major Hits on Federal Employee Retirement Programs
5.19.2017 - The Denver Post reports: Trump's fiscal 2018 budget would: Increase Federal Employees Retirement System contributions from workers by 1 percentage point each year until they equal the government's contribution. Base future retirement benefits on the average of the high five years of salary instead of the current high three. Eliminate cost-of-living adjustments (COLA) for current and future FERS employees. Eliminate supplement payments for FERS employees who retire beginning in 2018. - Purported Trump budget doc zeroes out federal employee benefits - Republicans gearing up for major changes to federal pay and benefits - Comments (Count)

USPS Reports 2017 2nd Quarter Results
5.10.2017 - USPS reports: "Although the U.S. Postal Service posted modest controllable income for the second quarter of fiscal year 2017 of $12 million, it fell well short of the $576 million that it had for the same quarter last year. This reduction was driven by the April 2016 expiration of the exigent surcharge, which would have generated approximately $500 million in additional revenue during the quarter had it remained in place, and to a lesser extent, a $69 million increase in controllable operating expenses." - USPS Loses Nearly $600M, Says It's Close to 'Solid Financial Footing' - Comments (Count)
Letter Carriers: Where's The Contract?
4.26.2017 - PostalMag.com reports: "Letter Carriers across the U.S.A. are beginning to grumble about the lack of a new contract. The last contract expired almost a year ago on May 20th, 2016. The length of time, without the contract going to arbitration, is unusual. Carriers are concerned about missing out on wage increases and cost-of-living allowances." - Comments (Count)
