Postal News Roundup
The positive reviews came as no surprise to agency officials or workers. The Postal Service regularly comes out on top of surveys of trusted federal agencies. But favorable survey results also come at time when the agency is struggling to remain financially viable, and as postal workers and their advocates fight proposed cuts in service and mail processing centers.
Instead of shuttering the doors of small, rural post offices dotting the countryside, the postal service has reduced hours, cut delivery routes and built cluster boxes to save money. Jamison and other rural postal workers fear closures will come next.
