USPS withdraws contract termination notices after UPU commitment
The United States Postal Service (USPS) has notified negotiated-service agreement (NSA) holders that NSAs will stand through their natural termination dates after U.S. officials announced the country would stay in the Universal Postal Union (UPU). The decision came Wednesday after an Extraordinary Congress voted to approve a U.S.-backed compromise plan to gradually let members set their own postal rates.
USPS had previously sent notices to NSA holders roughly three weeks before last week’s meeting, warning that the institution may not be able to honor NSA rates after Sept. 30 if the U.S. left the UPU.
“We are pleased to inform you that the United States has expressed its unequivocal intention to rescind its notice of withdrawal from the Universal Postal Union (UPU). Therefore, your agreement is, and will remain in effect according to the terms of the fully executed agreement.
