Labor Day: What it Means

Labor Day, the first Monday in September, is a creation of the labor movement and is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American workers. It constitutes a yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country.

Connecticut senators seek to stop postal closings; would leave 375 without jobs

without comments

WALLINGFORD >> Connecticut Sens. Richard Blumenthal and Chris Murphy are urging Postmaster General Patrick Donahoe to agree to a one-year moratorium on further consolidations of the U.S. Postal Service mail-processing facilities, scheduled to take place sometime early next year.

Blumenthal and Murphy, both Democrats, announced their request to Donahoe during a midday press conference outside the USPS Southern Connecticut Distribution and Processing Center on Research Drive. The two lawmakers were joined by about 50 postal workers who chanted “The U.S. mail is not for sale.”

“The United States Postal Service is betraying the public’s trust,” Blumenthal said.

Murphy said the moratorium would give Congress time to work out a plan to preserve the USPS at current service levels. The Wallingford facility has already been hit by a partial consolidation, with about half of its work relocated to a Hartford mail processing facility last September.

Maureen Marion, a Postal Service spokeswoman, said Donahoe is aware of the request by federal lawmakers to have a one-year moratorium declared on the further consolidation of facilities. But Marion said the Postal Service had delayed moving forward with the effort in February in order to give federal lawmakers time to take action.

“They didn’t and now we need to move forward because our needs are significant and urgent,” she said.

OIG Management Alert – Missing Leased Trailers in the Northeast Area

without comments

Because the Postal Service was unable to locate the 35 missing trailers or show details on trailer utilization, we estimate the Postal Service unnecessarily paid $124,727 annually in leasing costs, or $249,454 over 2 years. In addition, the Postal Service unnecessarily paid an additional
$37,920 in damages to the supplier to replace these lost trailers.

From:
OIG Management Alert – Missing Leased Trailers in the Northeast Area

—————————

1. Thirty five trailers doesn’t seem like an unmanageable task to keep track of.

2.  Apparently did not need them in the first place, since they were not missed.
