List of at-risk postal facilities released

[Update 5:15 p.m.] Hundreds of mail-handling facilities have been named in a shutdown list released Thursday by the U.S. Postal Service as the agency tries to cut massive red ink.

The potential closings are the latest chapter in a fundamental overhaul of the agency that may also mean closing thousands of smaller post offices across the country, and cuts in tens of thousands of Postal Service jobs in years to come.

It may also result in a slightly longer time for the delivery of first-class mail.

"It is no exaggeration to say that we are radically re-aligning the way that we process mail, the way that we deliver mail, and the way that we operate our retail network," Postmaster General Patrick Donahoe told reporters at a Thursday briefing.

The latest list targets 252 processing facilities and related "network transportation," as the Postal Service calls its distribution system, which now consists of 487 facilities.

"Our immediate goal is to reduce our total costs by $20 billion by 2015," Donahoe said, including $3 billion in anticipated savings from the facilities realignment announced Thursday.

[Original post] The U.S. Postal Service released a list of locations that will be studied in order to decide whether they will be closed or consolidated as the agency tries to cut massive red ink.

The potential closings are the latest chapter in a fundamental overhaul of the agency that may also mean closing thousands of smaller post offices across the country, and cuts in tens of thousands of Postal Service jobs in years to come.

The latest list targets nearly 250 processing facilities and related "network transportation," as the Postal Service calls its distribution system. Postmaster General Patrick Donahoe planned a news conference Thursday to explain the changes.

"With the dramatic decline in mail volume and the resulting excess capacity, maintaining a vast national infrastructure is no longer realistic," Donahoe said ahead of the news conference.

The US Postal Service is considering outsourcing some of its basic services to some local town halls, mini-marts or malls. It opened its first so-called "village post offices" last month in tiny Malone, Washington.

With the proposed change, postal officials say customers can expect a first class letter to take two or three days, instead of the one-to-three day standard the existing delivery system was designed to meet.

    I don't feel at all sorry for the US Postal Service. My parents had postal workers for friends in the 70s, and man, the wages & benefits they got- which were to last for the rest of their lives- were absolutely the FATEST & BIGGEST I'd ever heard of!!! It was insane to give such for life (see: automakers) and obviously the same result, unwise & unsustainable.

    I'm not saying workers shouldn't be paid & treated great & get generous lifetime benefits. But make sure your company can actually DO it!!! Life is ALOT longer than you can imagine!!!

      Lee – If you and your spouse work fulltime, each, and you only have 3 teenagers, AND you are somehow living "paycheck to paycheck" – then you are doing it wrong. Do you own cable? How many cars do you own? How many cell phones do you own? How often do you eat out? Even McDonalds is more expensive than buying bulk and cooking at your own home. How often do you shop? Do you travel? I bet the answer to over half of these questions will give you the answer as to why you are "living paycheck to paycheck".

My point to DD was – you can get by on a post office employee salary (and trust me we appreciate it), but you certainly aren't gonna get rich. It's a misconception that many people have.

      Mark my words the postal service will be obsolete within the next five years. Mail delivery will be ran by private companies like it is in most countries. This country needs to get out of the business of providing services to the masses. Other than defending the shores and keeping the interstates up and running for commerce our government has it's sticky fingers in to much stuff. Get rid of banking, train travel, delivering mail, providing energy and all the other misc crap they do our budget would be much leaner. Just the way I feel and vote!!!

    All postoffices in the Norwegian countryside have been closed and replaced with a Postoffice desk at a supermarket in each village. The local population was hesitant at first, but after a while you kind of get used to it. They offer the same services, are staffed by the the supermarket, and follows the supermarket opening hours, which means you can by stamps or pick up mail or packages late in the evening in may places. The same thing is happening to the banks. They barely give you any cash at the counter any more. They teach the elderly to use the ATM on the corner outside. (We stopped using checks more than 20 years ago). So I guess times are changing everywhere!

    Now......I live in Brazil, IN............I would like to know why in the world the USPS would not close 4 other smaller post offices in dinky towns around us, Harmony, Knightsville, Carbon and Staunton Indiana??? We are the largest of these towns with a whopping 9,000 people. These others just have a couple hundred residents.

      Yeah, because ending the post office and knocking that many more people to the unemployment line is going to do wonders for the economy. You "Flea Party Express" are an idiot. My wife is a UNION carrier and works hard to earn her money. Wages are good (not great). Benefits are comparable to many private run businesses. Your tax money does not go to fund the Post Office. It is strictly run from the sales of stamps and services. Not even UPS or FedEx deliver door to door the way the USPS does and you can bet that their rates would skyrocket if the USPS fails. In fact, many times UPS/FedEx drop the packages off to USPS to deliver. USPS needs to trim the fat from the top down. Too much unworking management, not unworking Union members.

      I agree... The new postal delivery service will be like a newspaper route... Private companies will hire people for half the price and still get the mail delivered just like your newspaper has been for the last 30 years. I moved several times all through the US and everywhere I go I have always had nice dedicated newspaper delivery people that got the job done even on holidays!!! Unlike all the federal holidays that the post office doesn't deliver. Half the mail I get is junk anyways so who cares about USPS.

    The post office certainly should close some of the smaller locations. But I must say, the facilities in my state that they are considering closing are swamped. I think USPS management is incompetant. That is one of the big problems. Some of the post offices they are wanting to shut down here are so busy their employees are asked to work days off and much overtime to handle all of the volume. I don't see why they are being considered for closure when clearly they aren't hurting for business. Another thing killing the USPS is the fact that congress has mandated that they fund all employees retirement 70 years in advance. They have almost enough money in reserve for this fund to put them in the black. And if congress would do away with the mandate then the USPS would likely be able to stay in the black with few cuts.

    Yes, the post office is still necessary, but even moreso, did y'all read the part where 10's of thousands jobs will be cut! That is not the kind of news we need right now! This is a sign of the times & growing pains are part of any drastic change, but what are we gonna do with thousands more unemployed!? Obama is at least trying to shore up the flood with his Jobs Acts, but unemployment keeps bleeding through & the GOP-TP are still arrogantly only thinking of themselves & getting Obama out of office! They should be rolling up their sleeves, throw partisan politic to the curb for the moment & help us get our country back on its feet! This is an emergency, but since they're all still very comfortable they don't seem to understand what we're talking about!!

  13. No Tea For Me

    If the USPS goes under, several hundred thousand jobs in related industries will be lost as well. It is short-sighted indeed to advocate for its dissolution. Bulk mail processors, the paper industry, truck manufacturers, airlines - all will suffer collateral damage if the USPS fails, and that collateral damage will be manifested by a reduction in the work force.

  14. FYI

    The information I am going to tell you is true. First of all, the post office is not funded by your tax money. It is funded by stamp sales. If we privatize the post office, do you really think your mail will be safe being handled by grocery store clerks making just over minimum wage? Probably not...anyway...sure the mail volumn is down but we have cut considerable jobs through retirement and other means. But the true financial reason is the pre-funding of retirement plans for the next 75 years!! This was a demand from congress that is truly impossible!!! But we did it which put us further in debt. Then when it was discovered that we overfunded this plan, the big government took the billions of dollars and applied it to help their deficit. That is so corrupt and something they dont want you to know. You people have to fight for your post offices to stay in business. Don't let congress take control of everything!!! If all these jobs are lost it will affect more than you realize. Its not just a job, it will add to unemployment, the stock market, etc.

      Naive the billion dollar deficits are funded by taxpayer money - there aren;t enough stamps on the planet to save this monstrosity. The USPS has 250,000 union employees doing NOTHING but they cannot be fired due to the union contract.

      @Larry. How can you lump all Union workers together as doing nothing. Come talk to my wife about doing nothing after she comes home from delivering after a snowstorm until well after dark, or driving around in 110 degree weather with no A/C. Don't group everyone. She chose this job and she enjoys it on most days. She works hard and helps provide for our family. FYI speaks the truth. Government is always taking money that doesn't belong to them and using it. The USPS could survive had it not been for greedy politicians. Blame them, not the USPS UNION WORKERS.
