I am forwarding a copy of an article in FEDWeek, a newsletter published daily with information for Federal employees and retirees. The article spells out the circumstances facing the Postal Service in funding its operations and retirees health benefits and some of the options that could happen to our health benefits. Let me remind you that currently the USPS pays aprox. 75% of the premiums for our health benefits. If the USPS were privatized or allowed to fail, our premiums would more than triple. If you haven’t done so already, I encourage you to call your congresspersons office and voice your displeasure about how the postal service is being allowed to flounder by congress, the new PMG and the Executive Branch. They need to hear our displeasure with what’s happening. The article is written by Jonathan Foley of Wescott Partners LLC.
