The commissionâs report, according to ABM president-CEO Gordon Hughes, will include proposals for a Postal Network Optimization Commission to recommend facility closings and the development of an âappropriately sizedâ workforce.
Other proposals said to be in the report and supported by ABM include the rejection of USPS privatization and an elimination of a cap on postal executive salaries.
âWe applaud the Commissionâs recommendations, and we are gratified to see that after careful and thorough research and much discussion, they have come to many of the same conclusions that we came to seven years ago,â Hughes said in a statement.
The Magazine Publishers of America also commended the postal commission's efforts. "The MPA applauds the effort and foresight of the President's Postal Commission in making strong recommendations for much needed change in the nation's postal system," said Nina Link, president-CEO of the MPA.
