USPS Conference on Service Degradation
Moving rapidly to show its resolve to implement its plan, the Postal Service announced its intention to file at the regulator for service degradation:
Pursuant to 39 C.F.R. § 3020.111(d), the Postal Service provides the Postal Regulatory Commission (“Commission”) this Notice of its intent to hold a pre-filing conference on April 6, 2021 from 1:00 to 3:00 pm EDT, regarding its proposed Service Standard Change for First-Class Mail and end-to-end Periodicals. Due to the current COVID-19 situation, the conference will occur virtually, rather than at a physical location. Representatives of the Postal Service capable of discussing the policy rationale behind the Postal Service proposal will be made available at this time.
Interested participants may register to attend the conference by proceeding to the pre-filing conference registration page, which may be found at:
