The PMG just announced that the USPS will participate in the day of mourning per 519.4 of the ELM
Management just released the following statement : President Donald J. Trump has Dec. 5 as a national day of mourning throughout the United States and has called on the American people to pay homage to memory of former President George H.W. Bush on that day.
Out of respect for President Bush, the nation’s 41st commander in chief, and to honor his vast contributions to the United States during his lifetime, and consistent with the presidential proclamation, the Postal Service will observe the national day of mourning.
The Postal Service will suspend regular mail delivery and retail service Dec. 5. USPS will provide limited package delivery service on that day to ensure that the Postal Service network remains fluid and USPS does not experience any impacts to its package delivery operations that might negatively affect customers or business partners during the remainder of the busy holiday season.
All Postal Service facilities — including headquarters in Washington, DC, and area and district administrative offices — are included in the national day of mourning. Local managers will advise employees on staffing levels to maintain operations and prepare for the resumption of regular activities Thursday, Dec. 6.
Pay and leave administration for the national day of observance for affected bargaining unit employees is governed by section 519.4 of the provisions of May 4, 2000, memorandums of agreement between the Postal Service and the APWU

American Postal Workers Union, AFL-CIO
