USPS’ rocky start to the first half of the fiscal year comes a month after President Donald Trump signed an executive order setting up a postal task force after claiming the agency is “on an unsustainable path.”
As a White House Postal task force conducts a review of the USPS business model, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) has a few suggestions.
While the Trump administration faces pushback from unions and members of Congress over its trio of federal workforce-related executive orders, more than half a million government workers, it turns out, won’t fall under the orders’ purview.
By August, the postal task force the White House stood up in April is expected to send its recommendations to President Donald Trump.
The Trump administration seeks to privatize the Postal Service as part of the sweeping government reorganization plan it unveiled Thursday, which may bring with it a significant pay and benefits changes to more than 600,000 USPS employees.
The White House Postal Task Force has yet to publicly release its recommendations on restructuring the Postal Service, but a Senate committee will soon shed more light on those plans.
