Following the passage of S. 1486 out of the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, Jeanette Dwyer, President of the National Rural Letter Carriers’ Association, released the following statement:

I am disappointed with the committee voting out S. 1486, which reflects a misguided attempt at solving the U.S. Postal Service’s fiscal problems. Despite the Postal Service posting a profit delivering mail and packages in 2013, this bill operates on the assumption that fiscal stability can be reached through further cuts and the elimination of services. No business has ever succeeded by cutting service and lowering standards, and these strategies are not the way to reach long-term fiscal stability.

This bill would eliminate six-day mail delivery according to an arbitrary volume level. At a time when the USPS is growing its business with more service to the American public, the elimination of six-day mail delivery would mark the beginning of the end of the Postal Service and is simply unacceptable.

Not only does S. 1486 fail to solve the pre-funding of retiree health benefits, it creates a new pre-funding liability in workers compensation that will continue to drown the Postal Service in red ink. It represents a step backward that completely ignores the biggest fiscal issue facing the Postal Service.

At nearly all levels, this bill fails both the Postal Service and its customers. As rural letter carriers, we are encouraged to go above and beyond for the customers we serve. It is the job of Congress to ensure that same level of service continues for the American people. This bill, however, does no such thing.

—The NRLCA is an independent union whose members include 101,731 full- and part-time rural letter carriers. Rural carriers deliver mail on 73,461 routes, serving over 40 million customers and driving almost 3.5 million miles each delivery day in all 50 states, the US Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico. The average route is more than 47 miles long and serves 552 boxes.
