Commission Starts Clock on Postal Service's Cutbacks

The proposed $2.1 billion in annual savings is before the Postal Regulatory Commission as USPS has sought an advisory opinion. The commission has set a Jan. 4 prehearing conference “to consider all possible ways to expedite and streamline this proceeding.”

The U.S. Postal Service recently proposed cutbacks and service changes to gain $2.1 billion in annual savings and asked on Dec. 5 for an advisory opinion from the Postal Regulatory Commission. The commission now has set in motion the process of considering the request and has set a Jan. 4 prehearing conference "to consider all possible ways to expedite and streamline this proceeding."

USPS is among the largest civilian employers in the United States. Its proposal, if approved, is certain to result in significant staffing cuts for its workforce, as well as slower delivery of first-class domestic mail.

The commission's notice says the duration of the proceedings on this matter can't be determined at this point. It asked for notices to intervene in the proceedings to be filed electronically by Dec. 30 at 4:30 p.m. EST by accessing the Filing Online link in the banner at the top of the commission's website (http://www.prc.gov) or by directly accessing the commission's Filing Online system at http://www.prc.gov/prc-pages/filing-online/login.aspx.
