NEARLY ALL REMAINING USPS CLOSURES AND CONSOLIDATIONS PUT ON HOLD

without comments

The USPS announced significant changes to the Phase II-2015 USPS Network Rationalization Consolidation initiative.  With the exception of the Houston P&DC and Queens P&DC, the USPS has suspended all remaining closures and consolidations to a date to be determined. The National Office of the NPMHU has requested a meeting to discuss the implications of this decision. Additional information will be disseminated as it becomes available.

Access the updated closure/consolidation list.

Access the USPS RIBBS Network Rationalization website.

Per Dave Williams, USPS COO, this is not a moratorium.  These moves will go forward at some point.  However, service is an issue, and until stabilized, these consolidations are on hold.
