USPS Reports Second Quarter Fiscal 2021 Results
5.07.2021 - PR Newswire reports: "The U.S. Postal Service today announced its financial results for the 2021 second quarter ended March 31, reporting a net loss of $82 million, compared to a net loss of approximately $4.5 billion for the same quarter last year, as a pandemic surge in demand for package deliveries was not enough to offset increased operating costs and a decline in revenue from mail services." - NALC Statement - USPS Narrows Quarterly Loss - DeJoy Charges Ahead Despite Beating Financial Projections - Comments (Count)

PMG DeJoy criticizes mailing industry, USPS in scathing letter
4.28.2021 - Linn's Stamp News reports: "In a sharply critical critique of the mailing industry, Postmaster General Louis DeJoy has said the United States Postal Service is "incapable of providing the American people with consistent, predictable service." That statement came from the embattled postal chief as he sought to rebut arguments from commercial mailers that his 10-year plan to rescue the financially troubled federal agency is seriously flawed. In a three-page letter dated April 19, DeJoy blamed mailers for tolerating the Postal Service's flawed service "for well over a decade." - Comments (Count)
Postal Service Begins New Round of Facility Closures While Also Procuring Dozens More
4.27.2021 - GovExec reports: "The U.S. Postal Service will consolidate 18 of its mail processing plants, coupling that announcement on Tuesday with plans to procure 45 new "annex" facilities that will boost the agency's package delivery capacity. The move highlights USPS' shift from traditional mail delivery to packages, a trend ongoing for years and accelerated during the COVID-19 pandemic. It will also reignite a fight postal management has avoided since 2015, when it paused its efforts to close and consolidate large numbers of processing plants." - NBC News: Concerns Over Mail Delays - Comments (Count)
