POSTAL SERVICE CONTINUES AGGRESSIVE STEPS TO CUT COSTS

CLOSING ADMINISTRATIVE OFFICES, ELIMINATING POSITIONS, OFFERING EARLY RETIREMENTS

With no signs of an economic recovery in sight, the Postal Service is taking bold actions in response to its ongoing financial crisis. The Postal Service announced today it would be closing six of its 80 district offices, eliminating positions across the country and offering another early retirement opportunity. These actions are expected to save the Postal Service more than $100 million annually.

The six offices closing — located in Lake Mary, FL, North Reading, MA, Manchester, NH, Edison, NJ, Erie, PA and Spokane, WA — house only administrative functions and will not adversely affect customer service, mail delivery, Post Office operations or ZIP Codes. The functions of these six offices will be assumed by 10 district offices within close geographic proximity.

The Postal Service is streamlining operations and improving efficiencies across the board in order to protect its ability to provide affordable, universal mail service. By modifying networks, consolidating functions and restructuring administrative and processing operations, the Postal Service is adapting to meet the evolving needs, demands and activities of its customers.
