Ex-postal worker admits defrauding workers' comp out of $392,000
"A former U.S. postal worker admitted in federal court this morning that he defrauded the federal government out of $392,000 in workers' compensation payments over the past 16 years. David P. VanDeusen, 56, pleaded guilty to fraud in obtaining workers' comp benefits. VanDeusen went out on workers' comp in 1991 with a back injury he says he suffered on the loading dock at the U.S. Postal Service's distribution center on Taft Road. VanDeusen admitted he and his wife own Double D Auto Sales in Tully and that he's been buying and selling cars at local auctions since 1991. He also was getting income from two other businesses -- a sign-making outfit and a driveway-sealing business. VanDeusen faces up to five years in prison and a $250,000 fine when he's sentenced Dec. 13." -

FSS (DPS Flats) Will Change Delivery Environment
Among the items in the Proposed National Agreement between the NALC and USPS is a memorandum on FSS work methods. FSS could add another (third) bundle to carriers' daily workload (1. carrier-cased letters and flats; 2. DPS letters; 3. DPS flats). According to the memorandum, a Joint Task Force comprised of four members from the NALC and four from the USPS will "explore alternative work methods necessary for handling mail in an FSS environment." Though the implementation of FSS will result in greater efficiencies in the sorting of mail, the implementation could make the daily work of carriers harder in that carriers will probably have a third bundle everyday, instead of just on circular (ADVO, etc.) days. (Still not clear is how circulars will be delivered in an FSS environment.) Also, carrier routes will be adjusted longer as carriers will need less office time to sort mail. -
NALC Postal Record: Who Should Be US President? (PDF)
"To help assess the presidential contenders, the NALC Legislative and Political Department in late May sent a questionnaire to all declared Republican and Democratic candidates -- at the time, 10 Republicans and seven Democrats. The questionnaire noted that candidates' responses to the questions "will weigh substantially in considering NALC support." -
Seattle: Local post offices hit by new breed of identity theft
"In mid-July, three men left their homes near Los Angeles and traveled to Seattle to buy postage stamps. But these were no ordinary collectors. Armed with at least 27 stolen credit-card numbers, federal prosecutors say, Artem Danilov, Stephan Melkonyan and Karapet Kankanian fraudulently purchased more than 3,200 books of stamps worth nearly $24,000 from Seattle-area post offices in just more than a week. A federal grand jury Thursday charged the men with an assortment of crimes. Following a pattern that Postal Service investigators have uncovered in at least five Western states, the men made mass purchases of stamps after normal working hours from automated postal machines, which are accessible 24 hours a day in the lobbies of many post offices around the country, prosecutors allege." -
