The U.S. Postal Service, continuing to trim its enormous work force as first-class mail volume shrinks and mail-handling technology improves, is seeking approval to offer early retirement to about 58,000 workers.<br><br><br><br>
While the Postal Service reported a higher-than-expected profit of $1 billion for its first fiscal quarter, it had losses of about $2.5 billion during its three most recent fiscal years.<br><br><br><br>

First-class volume is down 1.8% to 31.5 billion pieces so far in the current fiscal year compared with a year earlier.<br><br><br><br><b>Postal Service Seeks to Eliminate 58,000 Jobs</b><br><br><a href="http://www.smartmoney.com/bn/ON/index.cfm?story=ON-20030129-000835-1135" target="_blank">http://www.smartmoney.com/bn/ON/inde...29-000835-1135</a>
