A mail crisis is looming as USPS lowers service

In 2006, Bush legislated that the U.S. Post Office pay an unheard of 75 years of employees healthcare in 10 years, costing $5 billion a year. On Jan. 5, 2015the USPS is slated to lower service standards to virtually eliminate over-night delivery, including first-class mail from one address to another within the same city or town. All letters, periodicals and packages throughout the country will be delayed.

Also 82 Mail Processing and Distribution Centers are scheduled to close or consolidate operations. These cuts will cause hardships for customers, drive away business, cause irreparable harm to our Service and lead to massive schedule changes and reassignments for employees.

What happens if your local office closes down?
