Postal Service backs down from plan to end Saturday mail delivery

without comments

USPS’ Board of Governors said in a Wednesday statement that it still backed the agency’s plan to no longer deliver letters and other pieces of first-class mail six days a week, a move the Postal Service says will save some $2 billion a year.

But the board said that the passage of a stopgap spending measure last month – which kept language mandating six-day delivery – had tied USPS’ hands.

“Although disappointed with this Congressional action, the board will follow the law and has directed the Postal Service to delay implementation of its new delivery schedule until legislation is passed that provides the Postal Service with the authority to implement a financially appropriate and responsible delivery schedule,” the postal board of governors said in a statement.

“The board believes that Congress has left it with no choice but to delay this implementation at this time.”
