USPS: Feb. 9 Board of Governors Public Meeting Cancelled Due To Weather

WASHINGTON — The public meeting of the Board of Governors of the U.S. Postal Service scheduled for Feb. 9, 2010, has been cancelled due to transportation issues related to severe winter weather in the Washington, DC, area.

With transportation options already limited throughout the entire mid-Atlantic and another storm system expected Tuesday, the Board has cancelled the meeting in the interest of public safety.

Items and reports on the Feb. 9 agenda will be rescheduled for presentation at a future meeting.

The Postal Service receives no tax dollars for operating expenses, and relies on the sale of postage, products and services to fund its operations.

  1. The BOG can’t make their meeting? Oh, now that is too frickin bad! The question is, “What kind of leave do they want to put in for?”. When we missed a work day due to snow and ice and impossible road conditions, we called in and requested Administrative Act of God Leave in leiu of annual leave, they gave everybody LWOP or AWOL. And they would not let us change it to annual! Can you pull that 3971 out of my ass?

  2. Its rather strange that the borad of governors can make a decision when it comes to their safety as to hold a meeting or not. However when it comes to the rest of their emoployees safety it business as usual. It seem like if the federal government is close and all the surrounding counties are close it seem like the board of governers would follow their lead. And not think that it looks good to put all their employees at risk by having them out in bad weather conditions trying to deliver mail on the first day after the blizzard when the everyone is being advise to stay off the roads so they can be plowed and treated. Where is the common sense and where is the safety concern…..Yeah we deliver alright without concern for safety….
