Concerned postal workers lay blame for delays squarely on recent overhauls

“In all the years that I’ve been with the Postal Service, I’ve seen many changes. I’ve seen changes in operation. I’ve seen changes in delivery standards. But I’ve never seen any mail delay,” said Cash, president of the American Postal Workers Union Western New York Area Local 183.

“That has always been our cardinal rule, is to not delay the mail. So to have someone come in and all of a sudden tell us we’re not going to deliver all the mail every day is a complete change in the culture that we were taught from day one,” she said. “I’ve never seen anything like it.”…

“If the mail doesn’t make it to the dock, it doesn’t get on the truck,” said Daleo Freeman, president of the American Postal Workers union in Cleveland, who joined the post office ranks in 1994. “So we’ve had mail that has been left in the plants. Then they get it on the truck the next day. “…

“The way they’re stopping it, the mail’s just not making it to transportation,” said Cinelli, who is a shop steward for the union. “It’s just staying where it is. It comes in and it just does not make it.”
