NALC Press Release.

White paper drafted by international financial advisory firm Lazard

 

WASHINGTON, D.C., April 17, 2012 — Successful revitalization of the U.S. Postal Service requires a strategic business plan that leverages the unmatched reach of its network, legislative action to relieve it of obligations no other business bears and shared sacrifice from all stakeholders, says the renowned international financial advisory firm, Lazard.

“While the Postal Service clearly faces enormous challenges, we do believe that its revitalization is achievable,” Lazard says in a white paper released on April 17. The paper, “Delivering Change to Revitalize an American Icon,” results from a due diligence investigation of the USPS commissioned in October 2011 by the National Association of Letter Carriers and conducted by a Lazard team with extensive experience in restructuring strategy.
