    US Post regulator denies union bid to block changes - Reuters

    The mail agency said in May it would begin this summer consolidating operations at mail processing plants, with about 140 facilities to be closed or consolidated by February 2013.

    The American Postal Workers Union, which represents mail clerks and other workers, filed a complaint earlier this month arguing that USPS cannot begin implementing the changes until it receives an advisory opinion from its regulator.

    Regulators are still considering the APWU's initial complaint but said Friday they denied the request for an emergency injunction preventing the service changes.
