This is the July 2012 edition of the “President’s Preview,” a quick look at the upcoming edition of The Postal Record that’s in the mail now. This e-mail message is part of our ongoing effort to ensure that your union stays in touch with every e-Activist at least once a month.
In the July magazine, you’ll find my President’s Message, titled, “The PMG adds insult to injury —USPS is not like Greece”—
In June, I appeared at a postal industry conference called “Postal Vision 2020,” where organizers tried to get everyone involved in the mailing industry to think creatively about the future of the Postal Service. There were a number of very interesting presentations that urged the Postal Service to think of its networks as “platforms” from which new services could be launched. The examples of Google and Amazon and other innovators were frequently invoked. Unfortunately, these optimistic possibilities appeared to be lost on Postmaster General Pat Donahoe, who doubled down on his blinkered vision of the future by once again outlining his plans to radically downsize the unique and unmatchable universal delivery network that postal employees have built up over the past 200 years.
