The unions have demanded keeping rural offices open and are completely against reducing the days of use or elimination of offices to pare operating expenses.
Further, the unions extort the taxpayer for their retirement package, of which, they pay little to nothing toward and will continue ue to receive lavish insurance throughout their retirement.
The post office is run life some idiot and anachronistic oligarchy whose sole premise is old age or rather, retirement patronage. Gratis from the taxpayer.
You really blew it on that one ~ it’s members of the US Senate who demand the small unneeded rural post offices be kept open. True enough the postmasters have an association which looks remarkably like a union, but it’s not really a union.
All postal revenues are derived from postage payment, not your precious taxpayers ~ the deal here is that the customers pay ~ a remarkably simple concept some people just can't get through their heads.
