Universal Service Still of Critical Importance

07/09/2008 - The APWU has filed written testimony with the Postal Regulatory Commission emphasizing that universal postal service is still extremely important to a significant number of citizens. 

The union urged the PRC to “view the questions of access to the mailbox and the need for universal service through the eyes of the average citizen,” and noted that, “If the need for postal services were to be viewed only from a business viewpoint, important access to services might be curtailed.”

APWU Testimony Kicks Off Controversy

06/02/2008 - Recent APWU testimony on Capitol Hill about the Postal Service’s obligation to provide “universal service” to all Americans seems to have stirred up a controversy.

Addressing a House subcommittee on May 8, APWU Legislative Director Myke Reid expressed the union’s concern about actions by the Postal Regulatory Commission (PRC), “which has undertaken, through private contractors, to study the Postal Service’s universal service obligation.”

The PRC has hired contractors who favor privatizing essential USPS operations, Reid testified, noting that the individuals selected have expressed hostility to fundamental elements of universal service — the postal monopoly and uniform rates.
