Uspo closing consolidating locations

And it wasn't for Ruth Pelke, who in no way deserved to be savagely stabbed to death by the then 15-year-old Cooper. And not for Pelke's grandson, Bill Pelke, who told me several times about his sincere concerns for Cooper's life and future. In so many ways, this case has illustrated how our species is still in its infancy. If Congress does intervene, Cline and Mc Caffrey would like to see them go beyond saving what’s still at Stewart.“Ideally, we’d like to bring some of those functions back” that we lost over the years, Mc Caffrey said, like equipment for processing parcels.These ZIP codes and many more will be affected by the U. Postal Service's plant consolidation plan, officially called the Network Rationalization Initiative. It calls for the permanent closing of the Gary post office — the Gary Processing and Distribution Center — where Jones has worked for 28 years."Nobody working here wants to be relocated to Illinois," he told me. It makes no sense."Under the plan, his building will be closed and its processing and distribution center will be consolidated into the plant in Bedford Park, Ill. "As first outlined in 2012, the consolidation plan is expected to save the Postal Service more than million. It's also a possibility that up to 150 jobs will be cut, according to initial projections calling for this move to take place in July.The plan is a multi-phase, multi-year effort, first announced in 2011, "to balance mail processing infrastructure costs against current and anticipated mail volumes to successfully right-size the postal processing network," according to the U. Ken Vander Lugt has watched our society's wheels go round and round for more than 30 years from his Remarkable Book Shop in Merrillville. But that plan has been changed, I found out earlier this week from the city of Gary and the Postal Service.I remember going there as a kid, more than 40 years ago, to drop off U. Last Saturday, Raymond drove from his home in Wood Dale, Ill., to sample Howard's delicious food, and I just happened to be there for a book signing event.

And, said Diana Cline, director of organization and coalition coordinator for Local 3722, “Albany can’t process all the mail.” So it sometimes gets passed on to processing sites in Syracuse, or Springfield, Mass.

Percy Jones slid out a side door of the Gary post office on Martin Luther King Drive and handed me a handwritten note.

It listed more than two dozen mailing ZIP codes across Northwest Indiana, including Cedar Lake 46303, Chesterton 46304, Griffith 46319, Gary 46401-46411, Lowell 46356, Hebron 46341 and Portage 46368."The closing of this post office will affect all these," Jones told me.

The latest potential closure date is sometime in July, according to members of the American Postal Workers Union Local 3722, who represent the plant’s 150 remaining workers. The union is hoping for Congress to stop the closing of this and other plants, and is asking area municipalities to back them. Walden’s Village Board of Trustees is scheduled to consider a similar resolution Tuesday evening.

Postal Service’s processing plant at Stewart Airport could finally close for good later this year.
