    Mr. Cliff GuffeyPresidentAmerican Postal Workers

    Union (APWU), AFL-CIO1300 L Street, NWWashington, DC 20005-4128

    Dear Cliff:

    Certified Mail Tracking Number:70993400000905160038

    Fax: (202) 842-4297

    This is to inform you of the Postal Service's decision to consolidate all originating and destinating mailprocessing operations at the following Western Area location:

    Glenwood Springs, Colorado Customer Service Mail Processing Center (CSMPC) into GrandJunction, Colorado Processing and Distribution Facility (P&DF)

    After review, it was decided that this consolidation is in the best interest of the Postal Service.Implementation of this AMP is expected to be completed by October 2011. Enclosed, per your request is acopy of the completed study.

    The Postal Service must continually look to improve productivity and increase efficiency while maintainingexcellent service. The decline in mail volume and revenues due to the economic downturn has onlyheightened the need for such improvements. These consolidations will allow us to accomplish this goal bymaking better use of excess space, staffing, and equipment, and to process mail more efficiently.

    We have redacted information from the study in accordance with our standard practice. We have alsoredacted mailer names, companies, and titles that were notified of the study. The mailer names, companies,and titles do not appear to be relevant to the Union's representational responsibilities. Volume numbersassociated with service standard changes have also been redacted. This data is commercially sensitive andcould be advantageous to our competitors. In order to protect market share, the Postal Service must protectthe confidentiality of this information.

    It is projected that this consolidation will result in significant savings for the Postal Service. Some affectedcareer employees may be reassigned to other vacant positions. Reassignments will be made in accordancewith the collective bargaining agreement.

    If you have questions, or need additional information, please contact Jacqueline Adona at(202) 268-3800.

    Gaining Facility Name and Type: Grand Junction P&DFCurrent 3D ZIP Code s): 814,815


    The Glenwood Springs CO CSMPC is a postal owned facility that processes originatingand destinating volumes for SCF 816. It is located approximately 87.2 miles from theGrand Junction CO P&DF which services SCF 814 and 815.

    This study was conducted to determine the feasibility of relocating the originating anddestinating distribution processing operations from Glenwood Springs into GrandJunction every day Monday thru Saturday. Glenwood Springs originating mail iscurrently processed at the Grand Junction P&DF on Saturdays only, effective1/29/2011. The 24-hour clock target of 80% cancellations by 2000 will be adverselyaffected by the AMP due to the last collections not arriving in Grand Junction until after2130.

    The Glenwood Springs Main Post Office (MPO) is located approximately three milesfrom the Glenwood Springs CSMPC. The two offices share one finance number.


    The annual baseline date for this AMP feasibility study is taken from the period ofJanuary 1,2010 - December 31,2010. Financial savings proposed for theconsolidation of an originating and destinating mail volumes from the Glenwood SpringsCSMPC into the Grand Junction P&DF are:

    Total First Year SaVingsTotal Annual Savings

    $ 339,673$1,189,169

    There are one-time costs associated with this AMP as Grand Junction will receive twoAdvanced Facer Canceller Systems, with associated Ventilation Filtration System (VFS)and Biohazard Detection System (BDS) to safely process the consolidated mailvolumes. One-time facility costs include a Loose Mail System and required electricalupgrades.


    There will be no First-Class Mail or Priority Mail service standard downgrades to supportthe implementation of this AMP. One First-Class Mail/Priority Mail 3-digit pair, Durangoto Glenwood Springs, will be upgraded by this action. There are minor downgrades toPeriodical (3 pairs) and Standard (4 pairs) mail

    The BMAU and retail unit located at the Glenwood Springs MPO will not be affected ifthe AMP is implemented. Local collection box pick up times will remain unchanged anda local postmark will continue to be available at retail service locations.
