Sat Apr 26 2014 (Updated 05/04/14) Report Says USPS Should Suspend Actions to Relocate Services Out of Historic Facilities
Historic Post Offices Should Not Be For Sale JP Massar writes: On April 17th, the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation issued its Preserving Historic Post Offices report to Congress "on compliance with Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act for the closure and disposal of its historic postal facilities." This report was requested by legislation initiated by Berkeley's United States Representative in Congress, Barbara Lee.

Massar says that Berkeley residents' experience attempting to interact with postal service management demonstrates a total lack of consideration for the community's concerns. He writes that USPS management, "ignores the law when it is inconvenient to their purposes; and we know that they are hell-bent on selling Post Office assets in pursuit of immediate revenue..."

On April 24, postal workers protested USPS privatization at a Staples store in San Francisco.
