Senate Committee To Discuss Postal Reform

Share this article:
The Senate Governmental Affairs Committee will hold a hearing 10:30 a.m., Sept. 3, to discuss postal reform and changes to the U.S. Postal Service proposed by the Presidential reform commission.


Testifying at the hearing will be James A. Johnson and Harry Pearce, co-chairs of the commission, which issued a report in July that recommended widespread changes including increased automation, fewer employees, changes to the collective bargaining process and increased power to close unprofitable post offices.


Postal labor unions have announced their opposition to some of the reforms.


The "U.S. Postal Service: What Can Be Done to Ensure Its Future Viability?" will be broadcast live at the Senate Government Affairs Committee Web site, govt-aff.senate.gov.
