Save the Tufts University Post Office

Save the Tufts University Post Office The American Postal Workers Union, Boston Metro Area Local 100, would like to speak with you today about the closing of the Tufts University Post Office. First, it is important to note that the Postal Service does not rely on tax revenue to perform its operations. In other words, your hard earned dollars do not subsidize Postal Service functions. All the while, we interact with the American Public on a daily basis, providing extraordinary service at a reasonable price. However, the Postal Service, one of the most honored institutions in America, is being systematically dismantled by a management group intent on following corporate ideology that prioritizes downsizing and outsourcing (even at higher costs) rather than growing our business through dedication to service. Postal Service management is fostering the long lines that now pervade local post offices. Why To discourage you from conducting your transactions with a window clerk, forcing you to seek alternatives, and thereby justifying their pre-determined and particularly self-fulfilling staffing cuts. The Postal Service plans on closing hundreds of Post Offices nationwide including the Tufts University Post Office. Of course, while we are concerned with protecting our members jobs, we are similarly concerned with the quality of service we provide our nation. What's most disconcerting is that the Tufts University Post Office brings in a handsome profit of $213,000+. Apparently, the Service believes they can reduce their costs through these closures and continue to bring in the same revenue. How you might ask--by expecting or rather forcing you the public to use other facilities. Perhaps they should simply state Customer Service is an Inconvenience. One would think that a management team, which maintains its losing money, would look to promote every office that operates with even the slimmest margin never mind those that provide a generous profit. We believe this profit of $213k supports our contentions that the Tufts University Post Office provides a valuable service to the community as well as a respectable profit to the Postal Service and the Tufts University Post Office should remain open. Sincerely, The Petition
