The plant consolidation schedule for 2015 was updated to August 13, 2014 at https://ribbs.usps.gov/. With the switch to 24-hour plant operations, most jobs in the gaining facilities will likely be reposted. Parking will be scarce during the tour overlaps. Maintenance people will have a big challenge keeping the machines running continuously and the floors clean.
For those who think Phase 2 will be the end of plant consolidations, I invite them to read this OIG white paper, “A Future Mail Processing and Transportation Network.” The OIG thinks there will be a need for only 135 plants by 2020.
