TOP STORIES
Postal Service to deliver mail Friday and Saturday, despite new Juneteenth holiday
6.18.2021 - USA Today reports: "Neither rain nor snow nor hail nor sleet - or even the new Juneteenth federal holiday - will stop the mail. Mail delivery will go on as scheduled on Friday and Saturday even though Friday is a federal holiday under a new law signed Thursday by President Joe Biden. Biden gave federal workers a day off when he signed a bill on Thursday making Juneteenth, celebrating the end of slavery in Confederate states, into the country's newest holiday." - APWU Demands USPS Recognize Juneteenth as a Holiday - USPS Issues Statement - USPS 'critical infrastructure' - USPS fully supportive of holiday, will continue regular operations this year - Comments (Count)
USPS raises stamp price to 58 cents under DeJoy's 10-year plan
5.28.2021 - FOX Business reports: "The price increase is part of Postmaster General Louis DeJoy's 10-year plan, introduced in March, to reorganize the Post Office and avoid a projected $160 billion loss over the next decade. The initiative includes longer delivery times for some first-class mail, shorter hours for some post offices and more expensive postal rates." - USPS News Release - Comments (Count)
USPS Faces Preemptive Backlash to Expected Soaring Price Hikes
5.27.2021 - GovExec reports: "Constrained by inflationary caps, USPS has issued modest price increases of around 2% in recent years. This year, observers expect the hike could be as high as around 7% for First-Class Mail and higher for other products. In a recently released 10-year business plan, postal management said it expected to increase revenue by $35 billion to $52 billion over the next decade directly from rate increases." - Comments (Count)
