USPS RESUMES PLANT CLOSURES AND CONSOLIDATIONS

The Postal Service has announced that it will resume consolidation and closure of mail processing plants in 2015.  In early 2014, the USPS had announced it was halting all scheduled sonsolidations and closures.  However, with this weeks annoucement, the USPS is resuming implementation of their Network Rationalization plan. 

 PMG Donhaoe suggests that decreaing 1st class volumes and "excess capacity" are behind the need to reduce the number of processing plants.  "We find ourselves with excess capacity in the network and few alternatives to reduce costs, "Donahoe said, adding that, "Our operating costs are continuing to increase, and our debt and other liabilities threaten our financial viability."

Pennsylvania would be impacted as the Network Rationalization plan calls for the closing of the Erie, Lancaster and Scranton Plants with the mail being sent to Pittsburgh/Rochester, Harrisburg and Lehigh Valley P&DC respectively.  This could result in the return of Article 12 withholding as the change see clerks, maintenance and MVS employees being excessed.  Click HERE to see a full list of propsed closures and consolidations.
