The NRLCA has addressed the following issues with USPS Headquarters pertaining to the changes to the IMDAS and acceptance scans:


Goodbye "USPS Delivery Confirmation"—Hello "USPS Tracking #"

In a few weeks, the text banners above the barcode on PC Postage style mail labels will change. For instance, where the "ZIP-USPS Delivery Confirmation" text appears, you will see "USPS Tracking #". Even "ZIP - USPS Signature Confirmation" will change to "ZIP - USPS Tracking #". The rewording is part of the USPS's continuing commitment to provide better package visibility during the delivery cycle. When Delivery Confirmation started around 2000, you got just that—a single scan indicating the delivery event. Now, you will typically see 5 to 7 events for a given package. On many mail pieces with computer-generated PC Postage, it will be difficult to tell a Signature Confirmation label from a Delivery Confirmation label, so be aware of that. However, you will always know what to do when you scan the barcode: the scanner will tell you exactly what actions are needed.


Delivery Unit Optimization (DUO)

Delivery Unit Optimization is also referred to Delivery Unit Relocation. This process is the moving of routes from one office to be relocated in to another post office. The USPS is looking at offices that are within approximately 10 miles of each other, nine or less routes, and Postmasters that are retiring in the near future. The USPS is looking at where the cost savings would be under these stipulations. The settlement of the NRLCA Class Action, Q06R-4Q-C 10218691, was signed and agreed upon by Joey Johnson, NRLCA, Director of Labor Relations, and Cathy Perron, USPS, Labor Relations Specialist, on August 27, 2010. Please visit the website under “What’s New” to view this settlement.

I will keep you informed on the website as news of which offices are to be relocated in to what offices. I may not be informed in a timely manner by the USPS.
