The Postal Service believed it could reduce costs by closing the Rockville Centre, New York, Postal Annex and moving operations performed there to other locations. Outgoing mail was transferred to the Jamaica Post Office where it can be handled more efficiently by machines. The Annex is scheduled to close by June 30, 1978. The closing is economically justified--cost reductions of $281,627 were realized in the 1-year period following the transfer to Jamaica, and further reductions are anticipated. Measurements based on success in meeting mail delivery goals indicated that the quality of mail service is unchanged. Employees affected by the changes have been dealt with fairly and in accordance with the national labor agreement.
