My name is Frank Antinone, owner and webmaster of the website thepostalblogger.com which is an informational website for postal and federal articles, news, blogs and information. Federal laws and regulations are constantly changing in the postal/federal world especially now with the Trump Administration and a Republican Congress. As Postal and Federal workers, both current and retired; all of our jobs, benefits and retiree benefits are at risk and we need to keep up to date.
As a recently retired postal worker I have seen many changes at The United States Postal Service. The world of the USPS has changed drastically and will continue to do so. All of us have to be involved and informed to the best of our ability, and I feel that thepostalblogger.com will be the most current news source so every postal and federal worker can stay up to date on issues that involve all of us.
Just as Postal and Federal policies and laws change daily, the website thepostalblogger.com will probably always be changing and a work in progress, so stop back often.
“Our Vision” is the ability that we have to disseminate information to postal and federal workers, so they can be aware of what is going on in the Federal Government or the United States Postal Service to keep their present jobs, pay scale, benefits and retirement annuities and supplements that they are entitled to.
We feel that many postal websites are outdated and not current with their information and news articles. That is why we feel that thepostalblogger.com will offer a full website with current news, blogs and information and we will strive to keep it that way.
Every business has a beginning, and this is where we will talk about ours. I retired from The United States Postal Service in 2016. I held many union positions within the 31 years that I worked at The Post Office. I have always enjoyed being a part of the union and helping members with their constant battle against management at the USPS. Even though I am retired, I still have the ambition and drive to help postal and federal workers in any way that I can. That is why I started the website thepostalblogger.com.
Being an editor for many years made me want to carry on the writing, photo gallery and political cartoons that I put in our union publication. What better way than to create a website that offers all of that and keeps postal and federal workers informed on what is going on with their jobs and to keep it current. I hope you enjoy the website and return often for the most current information, blogs, news and articles.
Meet The Team
