Printing Industries Commends PRC’s Rejection of Postal Rate Hikes

Additionally, Printing Industries of America called on Congress to take a hard look at its mandated aggressive schedule of the USPS’s prefunding of its retiree health benefits program, a considerable cost burden for the USPS. Lawmakers on Capitol Hill could vote to amend the prepayment structure as a means to provide a tool to USPS management in righting its operating costs.

“Printing Industries of America’s member companies are more dedicated than ever to emerge as profitable job creators on Main Streets across the country,” said Makin. “Today’s decision by the PRC saves and increases market opportunities for print. We look forward to working in partnership with USPS and other key decision makers to address long-term challenges and to ensure the future viability and success of the nation’s mail service.”
