WASHINGTON, Jan. 12 () – The new chairman of the U.S. Board of Postal Administrators has approved the leadership of postmaster General Louis DeJoy and called on lawmakers to approve a comprehensive financial reform measure.

On Wednesday, the council unanimously elected retired investment banker Roman Martines as chairman after President Joe Biden refused to re-nominate Ron Bloom for a new term on the board.

Martinez DeJoy, nominated by then-President Donald Trump, was a member of the council. He is “the person who will carry out the necessary reconstruction … He is a transformational leader.”

Many Democrats have called on the postal council to fire DeJoy, a Trump supporter who was appointed head of the USPS in 2020, who has been heavily criticized for changes to pre-election mailings.

Congress is considering a two-party plan to provide USPS with $ 46 billion in financial assistance over 10 years, including the abolition of a 75-year health benefit requirement for pre-service retirees.

On Wednesday, DeJoy thanked Congress and main committee leaders for their “commitment to pushing this bill forward in the coming weeks.” Lawmakers did not publicly announce the action plan for the USPS reform bill and did not comment immediately on Wednesday.

DeJoy said this would “eliminate unfair funding requirements for retirees’ health benefits …. It’s fair, it’s necessary and urgent.”

Martines said the USPS will not seek a “handout” from Congress.

The USPS has reported a net loss of more than $ 90 billion since 2007. One reason for this is that the 2006 legislation requires pre-funding of more than $ 120 billion for retirees ’health and pension obligations. Other businesses do not have to pre-finance their pensions in large amounts, and unions have called the requirement unfair.

In March, DeJoy proposed a $ 160 billion reduction in projected losses over the next decade, including a slowdown in first-tier mail shipments in October.

The USPS, which struggled with poor delivery performance after experiencing packages and staff problems due to COVID-19, reported delivering 13.2 billion units of mail and packages in an average of 2.7 days during the 2021 holiday season. gave. In 2020, 12.7 billion. (Report by David Shepardson; edited by David Gregorio)
