[ALERT] USPS – Spendthrift Monopolist

The Alliance of Nonprofit Mailers has joined with MPA - The Association of Magazine Media, and PostCom - The Association for Postal Commerce, to provide an important opinion piece.

“In the ongoing “Ten Year Review” of postal pricing, the Postal Regulatory Commission is considering whether to retain, loosen, or eliminate the CPI cap on price increases for market-dominant products. Our three associations have urged the Commission to keep the price cap unchanged. The May 12 tentative collective bargaining agreement between the USPS and the National Association of Letter Carriers (“NALC”) confirms that the USPS cannot be counted on to control its costs or prices without the CPI cap.” [Alliance of Nonprofit Mailers]
