Default Postal Rates Going Up Again?

I heard today at our local union meeting that the USPS Board of Governors has approved another raise in postage in May. I can't verify that yet but it came from a reliable source.
In my opinion, they are trying thier best to have us privatized. They are doing everything they can to decrease the service while increasing the rates. Soon the public well demand for us to be privatized.

They have added a new size and price on a flat rate box. And they will be charging a fee for holiday and Sunday deliveries for next day shipping. As far as I know that is the only changes, nothing major.
