NPMHU Submits Comments to Darrell Issa

(July 18, 2013) - President John Hegarty responds to Darrell Issa’s Discussion Draft circulated for the Postal Reform Act of 2013. In a letter to the Chairman of the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, President Hegarty addresses the Postal Service's overfunding of the Federal Employees Retirement System (FERS) and Civil Service Retirement System (CSRS); the need to repeal the requirement that the Retiree Health Benefits Fund should be completely pre-funded; the preservation of service standards, six-day delivery and the integrity of the mail processing network; the preservation of collective bargaining rights, changes in the governance structure of the Postal Service; and the NPMHU’s support for proposals that would allow the Postal Service to offer additional postal services or various types of non-postal services.
