In these challenging times, reducing the cost of delivery operations — one of the Postal Service’s largest expenses — could save millions. One option the Postal Service is considering is to discontinue Saturday city and rural delivery and collection services.

Saturday is said to be one of the lowest mail volume days. It’s also a day when many businesses are closed. The September/October 2009 digital issue of Mailing Systems Technology included a survey of managers working in the mailing industry. Of those surveyed, 98 percent said changing to 5-day delivery would not require a change in staffing. The survey results also indicated that most managers surveyed (81 percent) preferred Saturday as the day of the week that the Postal Service would stop delivering mail. An additional 62 percent of the managers surveyed felt that once implemented, there should be no exceptions to 5-day deliveries such as for holiday weeks or high-volume mailing periods.

[poll id="58"]

[poll id="59"]

Gallup also conducted polls on ways to help the Postal Service solve its financial problems. They found that 66 percent of Americans supported reducing mail delivery days from 6 to 5 days, and 66 percent also supported reducing the number of days the Post Office is open from 6 to 5 days.

The Postal Service is currently studying the reduction of mail delivery from 6 days to 5 days. Should the Postal Service consider eliminating delivery, collections, retail, and remittance services only for delivery units with low mail volume? Should the Postal Service eliminate these services for all delivery units nationwide?

    Competition -FedEx, UPS and DHL. poor customer service. usps lost customers. despite the economic challenges some have the extra 20 or 30 cents to pay the other provider. its not putting a dent in their pocket plus cservice is better. perhaps early retirement for some. few businesses-agencies-bureaus can withstand the economic abuses caused by the rich and the poor. i say cut to 5 day delivery!! i usually get 2 days worth of junk mail and sales circulars in my box.

    I support having USPS only operate 5 days a week. Saturday and Sunday off would make sense as they are consecutive. Keep the parcel costs significantly lower than UPS & FedEx, and cut down the fracking junk mail!

    The question of can we handle a 5 day delivery schedule keeps coming up year after year. The obvious day to cut is Saturday. Businesses complain that they need Saturday delivery for marketing materials and such. I can see that. Why not cut a random day throughout the week, like a Wednesday. Thats my vote. Except at the holiday season. Just to handle volume I'm sure they would have to do a full 6 day schedule.

    Isn't ironic how some parts of the postal services is closing down, eventually completely evaporating from our world. One might wonder, why has this postal crisis arisen? With high competitive environments, everyone has to be on their guard. There is no stretch of fault or error. This is an example to all of us, of such a huge system crippling down to ashes slowly.

    Wow! The very core of USPS is to DELIVER! It is my humble opinion that the USPS should rid itself of all employees that are nonessential to core of the USPS....delivery of the mail and services that support this function. Instead, the USPS would consider sacrificing the very reason it's in existence by considering 5 day delivery. Just doesn't seem like good business from the stand point of someone "on the front line" delivering mail for the USPS such as a Rural Carrier like myself. Should I purchase a van or perhaps a huge SUV, because that's exactly what it will take to deliver 6 days volume of mail in 5 days. The USPS desperately needs some full disclosure and a huge dose of common sense.

    As a letter carrier, I see fraud and waste on the part of usps management everyday. Up in New Hampshire, they just caught managers stealing from carriers by way of shorting their time cards, will these managers be punished? If past experience is any indication, NO! They would rather browbeat craft employees who do the work- MSP, GPS, etc. I for one would LOVE to have Saturdays off to spend time with my family just like the rest of the civilized world. And for those who don't think the time has come for that, look at Canada or Australia, no Sat. delivery! They and other countries seem to get along just fine! I know that if you put this to a secret vote, you would get a majority of craft people to say yes, In my office, Sat. off is unanimous, the only ones who oppose this are the union bigshots who have'nt carried mail in years and have Saturdays off anyway. Just let the postal service give a REAL "early out", and through that and attrition, you shoud'nt even have to lay anyone off. And by the way, I am a union member! To close, let me just say to those who think this is a bad idea, UPS and FedEx don't want Sat. any more than the USPS, otherwise they'd be delivering, and didn't the buggywhip industry make the same argument when the automobile first showed up?

    Arbitrary pay for performance and internal evaluations are a fraud. Cancel mail on mechanical cancellers to get the numbers. Waste the labor because mail must be re-run on an ISS machine. Bypass the BDS and undermine national security for the BONUS! Mandate non-ODL employees to work 10 hours. Assign 10 hours of preventative maintenance routes. Expect employee to sign off as completing 10 hours of PM routes knowing the machines are only available for PMs for 7 hours or less. Pay the employee 2 hours of overtime for work that cannot be done. Collect the BONUS for 100% route completions. Harass employee if he refuses to participate in the FRAUD. Machines do not get their PMs completed. Employee receives 2 hours unnecessary overtime. Management receives unearned PFP incentive. Post Office continues to bleed red ink. Supervisor says "Its a game, and I'm going to play it. I will not be left behind". OK. Your the BOSS!

    It may become absolutely necessary, for the continued economic survival of the Postal Service, to reduce service to only 5 days per week. But why discontinue on Saturday? Why is that the only day that, apparently, is under consideration? I can make a guess at answering my own question -- the Postal Service does not want to upset businesses, but is quite all right with the idea of upsetting citizens. Otherwise the idea of stopping delivery on Monday might at least be discussed. As for shutting down the actual offices on Saturday, this would be disastrous for me. My local post office is only open Monday through Friday during the hours that I'm at work. As I live in an apartment, items that won't fit into the small mail box assigned to me have to be picked up at the post office -- on Saturday. Currently my local office is only open for two hours on Saturday (and half the town shows up to pick up packages during that time). Shutting down offices on Saturday means I'd NEVER get a portion of my mail. But I'm just a citizen, and not a business, so the Postal Service doesn't give a darn about me, right?

    Ask craft employees where to save and generate money before we destroy our service further. Why don't we charge for mail forwarding and vacation holds? We hold mail on "check day" without a fee, why? Hire only capable honest supervisors and you won't need all the managers managing managers. There are only two out of 13 in my office that I would consider hiring. Two are blatently dishonest and would be so easy to fire but the watch dogs aren't very capable either. Service in our office is falling fast, lets not push it over the edge.

    Take the mailboxes off the house and put them curbside on the street! Stop walking across lawns to deliver mail. Would probably eliminate thousands of routes, and the mail would be dryer when it's raining. A no-brainer, but I wouldn't expect the idiots in DC to recognize it.

    No G Rural, I'm not suggesting you carriers are not getting beat up. This is a brainstorming blog man. No matter how wild the idea, under the current econ conditions the USPS is experiencing, we'd better be changing sumthin. I delivered newspapers door to door when I was 9-12yr old. My route was suburb/city & apartment complex. Around 160 papers at peak. Never a mail carrier though. But, I certainly talk carrier's every day. And, the only way Washington's going to read the volume's we're all speaking every day, is right here on this Blog.

    Why is it that no fat is being trimmed from the beast...I mean management fat? Every carrier knows what their responsibility is. Every clerk knows theirs. At our station you have the manager there and two supervisors. For what? I'm convinced that if no management was there the mail would still get delivered. Our manager is only there for three to four hours a day but I assume he still gets his full pay regardless. They want to save costs but they feel like they're not part of the problem it's us. We're doomed.

    wait and see all the new injuries and worker's comp claims this is all going to cause. You'll have city and rural carrier's bodies going out faster than ever. First you automate everything you can, shove them out on the street fast, fast. How can a 50 yr. old carrier repeat the same motions day after day as it is? Now, shove more volume at them by going 5 days a week. Seriously, how long can a city carrier do that before their knees give out on them? Or shoulders? There will be no light days for your body to have a break. Just go, go go. Also, our 2 route office has a PM who sits on the phone or computer with the heat set on about 80 degrees all day while we are out on the street. Do you really think one of OUR days should be eliminated? Brilliant!

    I suspect that numerous USPS employees submit responses to the USPSOIG polls with self-serving responses to "save" jobs. The USPS should (must) implement 5-day delivery - sooner not later. My initial suggestion is that 5-day delivery shouls be phased in by District as normal attrition occurs. Eliminating Saturday delivery incrementally will be the least disruptive. We have significant turnover in non-career employees, despite this fact, the USPS continues to employ a significant number of non-career employees in delivery operations (City and Rural). As attrition occurs in City and Rural delivery operations, local management should determine which route(s) the 6-day delivery should be ended. Factors in determining which routes to end 6-day delivery could be a) volume; b) type of delivery (d-2-d, mounted, cbu); c) customer base (business, residential). While ending 6-day delivery all at once might be desired, it would create a situation where too many non-career employees would not be needed and would result in an impact on the economy. Alternatively, if there were a Carrier retirement incentive we may be able to reduce carrier complement sufficient to warrant ending 6-day delivery sooner without impacting the economy by laying off the non-career and significantly reducing PTF hours. Finally, the USPS needs desparately to create new business through services and products. Why is the USPS not in the Product Fulfillment? Product Fulfilment is a good fit for our organization. There would be jobs answering phones for the employees with physical limitations and other jobs with reduced physical demands to fill small boxes with product for shipment.

    Before throwing the baby out with the bathwater, there are MANY cost saving measures that should be taken. First and foremost,the USPS needs to recognize that Ben Franklin is no longer PMG, and a lot has changed. In this day of real time data transfer and all the rest of the high tech stuff, not every office needs a postmaster! Most small offices level 18 and below would be adequately staffed by clerks, many offices would not even require a full time one. Talk about waste, fraud and abuse! Many of these small office postmasters get paid 8 hours to sit in the office and sleep, do their own private business on PO time (like selling real estate) or just not showing up at all. Why pay 8 hours a day to staff an office that "earns" 4 hours? Change the regs, keep the post offie open, staff it with a clerk, and have a central "postmaster" or the MPOO oversee the operation. An FT postmaster is not needed anywhere under level 20.

    I resubmit this because it is the answer, especially as volumes continue to drop. Nothing that I have heard anywhere comes remotely close to the impact this would have. I have written to my Congressman and Senators and the pmg. Under my plan the PO continues to operate 6 days a week, but we actually go to a 3-day delivery with each carrier being responsible for 2 routes on which he would alternate days on and half of the people would get M-W-F and the others Tu-Thur-S. Your reach a point on any route where no matter how light the volume a carrier can only cover a certain amount of ground. There would at the very least a 40% reduction in manpower, Vehicles and fuel costs. On this system it would require 6 carriers to cover 10 routes, which is actually a 50% reduction from the 12 required today, and 5 vehicles instead of 10. The public, given the choice of losing the USPS or switching to 3 day delivery, could be brought over to our side. Of course there are other logical cost cutting moves they can make such as eliminating Park & Loop delivery wherever possible. 5 day delivery has little impact when compared to the Logical 3-Day Delivery System.

    The biggest problem I see with this plan is that even today, offices with rural delivery have great difficulty in securing a maintining a supplemental workforce in the form of RCAs (mostly). These employees give up (usually) 2-4 days a month, must always be "on call", and receive no benefits other than a decent hourly wage. If these 2-4 days get eliminated they will have no incentive at all to stay. I had a "K" rural carrier working 6 days a week for nearly a year because I could not attract a replacement for an RCA that transferred. I borrowed RCAs from other offices, carried the route myself, and even had clerks carry it so that my carrier could take Annual Leave, attend his son's graduation, etc. Until these and other staffing issues are resolved, I don't necessarily think it is a good idea.

    So what if delivery is halted on Saturdays. You still have operations fully running on Sat and worst of all Sunday. Where clerks/MH are paid premium. Close down the plants totally on Sundays. I'd rather be home with my family than get paid premium. All I do is read magazines all day. Nothing moves. Hardley anyone is in the plant anyway. Its a worthless processing day.

    Most everyone on this site has been saying the same thing. Which I totally agree with. Cut management by 90% and increase some craft. In Springfield, MO we have carriers out after dark because there are not enough of them. We need career people, not TEs. They won't let the PTFs go regular, and most of them have been working overtime for over 6 months. That is only one of the many problems the USPS has. Maybe a suggestion is for us to forward the Postal Reporter and many of the other sites we visit to our Representatives and they could read a lot of this themselves. Sure couldn't hurt. They would see that it's not an isolated problem.

    NO other money saving scheme should even be considered until, for a start, several things take place; - Mgmt. ranks reduce their staffing numbers in direct relation to the thousands of craft positions they have recently eliminated. At this time, NOT ONE mgmt. position has been eliminated, but thousands of those who actually move the mail, have. Mgmt. likes to tout a line of having eliminated x number of jobs, but those are secretarial, etc. There were to many supervisors, etc. to begin with, and now the ratio is even more lopsided. Micro-management is the root cause of all the Postal Services ills. - All mgmt. bonuses should be eliminated permanently. Even with all the crying they've done about the financial state of the USPS this year, as of June of this year, $50 MILLION OF BONUSES WERE STILL HANDED OUT. - Supervisors, etc. have to be made personally financially liable for the thousands of repeated contract violations done yearly. Currently, there is no incentive (in fact, they're encouraged to do so) for them not to violate the contract, yet it costs the USPS hundreds of millions of dollars annually in arbitration awards given for contract violations. None of these items get the press attention they deserve.

    This weeks' topic is Viable Alternatives for 6 Day Delivery Operations. So why did the USPSOIG include "Retail and Remittance" mail service in questions 2 and 3? Delivery Operations is distinctly accounted for separate from Retail and/or Processing. Skew? Remember Statistics 101 and Accounting 101? Understanding and separating Delivery Operations from Retail Operations would be a good start to brainstorming about alternatives, unless that is the questions are to generate statistics for possible targeting closure of non delivery rural post offices and/or select Associate Offices.

    Please explain why the USPS and its Postmaster General have 44 VPs throughout the organization.

    It is time for the government to step up. Tax payers bailed out the banks and auto industries. Time the government help the USPS. The USPS is a vital part of the US economy and society. Offer early outs for CSRS employees without penalties. Cutting service and closing plants and offices is not the way to fix the USPS. As suggest maybe a wage freeze as unpopular as it may be is a start.

    5 day delivery is better than a wholesale butchery of the entire service. When you need revenue, why would you shorten retail hours and reduce retail staffing, causing long lines at the counter? Talk about cutting off the hand that feeds you. Why is the USPS delivering ups parcels? UPS makes a profit for just dumping truckloads of parcels at the post office. Cut out the middleman. In rough financial times, USPS is helping UPS stay afloat by making their deliveries for them. If I charge a guy 10.00 to mow his yard and give you 1.00 to do the mowing, I have a pretty nice little mowing service. USPS, like big government, lacks in common sense. Dan

    What is this going to do for people who have no home delivery and thier post office location is only open during the hours they work? If they shut the post office down on Saturday's I will not be able to get my mail. Is that fair for me? The postoffice should cut the pork in their own budget. There are people that work for the Postal System that are certainly not needed. Cut them out completely and cut the pay of of everyone counter cyclicly. Managers get cut 15 percent and on down the line to where street level employees (mail delivers) see a 3 percent pay cut. That way everyone pays. The people that actually deliver the mail are the ones that will instead get screwed over and foot the bill for managements bad decisions. My grandfather had a saying: "When the company goes bad, the janitor is the first one to pay." As we have clearly seen with the recent recession, that is the truth. How many "janitors" were cut and laid off while the managers were left alone?

    The Postal Service should research and consider privatizing some of its enabling functions such as some of the departments in Finance, Legal, Marketing, and Transportation. With that said, the privatized functions with some tweaking could then offer their services to other government agencies in addition to the Postal Service. They could also open privatized entities that could enhance the Postal Services business profile. For instance having banking services available in Postal retail offices could help the customer accomplish their Postal and banking chores in a "one stop" shopping style.

    I would like to see the OIG find out WHY the USPS will not support the Customer Connect Program. I agree with some of the theories about management's seemingly deliberate pattern of eliminating the services we need to increase revenue such as the 24 hour lobby machines. They were brought in to help with the lobby lines and to reduce work hours. Then, after they were very successful, they were taken out because they cost too much. According to the window clerks they were generating more postage revenue than the window. Also, we are removing more and more blue collection boxes from the street because it costs too much for the carrier to take out two ( generously ) minutes to get out of his truck and empty it ? You NEVER increase revenue by lowering your visibility. I believe that management is deliberately trying to decrease revenues to show Congress that we are going failing and " our business model is broken " as Potter has been saying for months. This, is what is called a self-fulfilling prophecy.

    Before we consider cutting Saturday delivery we must see the plan for what it is. The USPS claims it will save $3.6 Billion by cutting Saturday. The Government Accounting Office did it's own review and claimed the savings would be more like $1.7 Billion. Postmaster General Potter ADMITS that cutting Saturday delivery will result in the loss of $600 Million in revenue as customers go elsewhere for service. So, using the GAO numbers, the USPS will save about $1.1 Billion by cutting Saturday delivery. USPS revenue for 2009 was $79 Billion. $1.1 Billion in savings represents only 1.3% of all postal costs. Cutting Saturday delivery would result in cutting 16.7% of service while only saving 1.3% in costs.

    5 day delivery question is beginning to sound like a broken record. You want to go 5 days, I have a better idea, just shut the post office down completely on day 6, 5 day delivery would discriminate against people who have home delivery. it is funny how i have never heard anyone mention that you could save ooodles more money by simply just shutting the post office down on day 6. NO employee, management, transportation, energy, cooling, heating,elctricity cost on day 6 oh what a concept. You want to cut the fat? Cut management by 90%. Is there any need for every post office to have a post master. The answer is no. we could have one post master for 5 to 10 post offices. My post master makes over 70k a year. I think his boss makes over 100k, supervisors make a boat load of money too. I hear there are way to many supervisors, all these salaries add up to oodles of money. I really think we need a common sense approach by cutting all unesessary postions that do not handle the mail. A private company would not survive and go bankrupt if the company had a high management to worker percentage as the post office does. It is time for Mr potter to act responsible and do what must be done to save the post office by cutting management positions.

    Save 6 day delivery. Proportionally reduce the numbers of Supervisors, Managers, Postal Inspectors, and OIG staff to those reductions in the craft. Stop the "Pay for Performance" Bonuses given out to Management and Supervisors. This is a repeat of the Banking and Financial sectors, albeit they were giving out these perks while making "record" profits the Postal Service is rewarding these Managers and Supervisors while making "record" losses. Eliminate the District level as having 2 levels is redundant and a waste. Bring back the MSC/SCF Postmaster position, and save having 5 people plus staff doing the same job (i.e., Postmaster/Plant Manager/POOM/District Manager/Senior Plant Manager).

    No one is saying what would happen if the USPS does go to 5 day delivery, how many more customers would cease mailing? As a postal worker, Saturdays is one of the HEAVIEST days for mail. Tuesdays are the lightest. I am not sure who is saying Saturday is light but they are not correct. An alternative is start offering more early outs to all employees. Cross train employees for maintenance jobs so those employees can retire as well. You may save $5 billion by eliminating a day of delivery, but if it costs you $5 billion in revenue, what exactly has been gained? It really seems USPS is intent on destroying the US Postal System and turn processing over to competitors.

    forget 5 day delivery. reduce service will only destroy the usps. people want service not less. why do people pay more for cell phone services? you know, blackberry's and iphones. because they want more. increase to 7 day delivery, increase priority mail, parcel post and express mail. these products are generated by the power of the interent though sales. why do we insist on giving rivals, ups and federal express more of our business, unless thats what higher managers really want to do. destroy the usps, sell it off and then scramble to see what pieces they can pick up and profit from. this might be a stretch but who knows?

    We have been beating this 5 day horse for years. If Potter and the governors want a new and workable idea, why not agree to going back in time to the pay level of 2007 for EVERYONE. This would free up a vast chunk of change for the USPS. It would take the bargining unit back to before the large COLA and before Potter and the VP's pay shot through the roof. Let's see if the Executives can give a little too to keep this train on the tracks. But from the way they have been chipping away at the services and makeing it harder for the customers to use the USPS, it' clear they don't really want a fix.
