Lakeland P & DC on the USPS Lists 139 Facilities
As ‘Potential Candidates’ for Consolidation

The Postal Service was forced to acknowledge in testimony to the Postal Rate Commission (PRC) in July that nearly a year ago it had compiled a list of 139 facilities [PDF] that were being considered “potential candidates” for consolidation. The USPS provided the list to the PRC on July 25.

The Lakeland P & DC is on the list of "potential candidates" for consolidation.  This is not only a concern for members of the Lakeland offices, but the Associate Offices could be affected by consolidation.

At this time, no information is known whether or not this is a real concern, but you can count on the APWU, and the Citrus Center Area Local to keep you informed.
