Unneeded Postal Service Cuts Wreaking Havoc On Workers’ Lives After USPS Intentionally Slows Mail

Service Cuts Disrupt Workers’ Lives

"...“In implementing the changes, they ignored the pleas of 51 senators and 178 members of the House, who asked for a one-year moratorium on the reduction in service standard and the closure and consolidation of mail processing facilities,” Dimondstein said. “They disregarded the warnings of the USPS Office of Inspector General, the Government Accountability Office (GAO) and the Postal Regulatory Commission, which raised serious concerns about delayed mail. Management even overlooked the concerns of some mailing industry trade associations. “They also ignored the demands of postal unions and the hundreds of thousands of workers we represent,” Dimondstein added. “Postmaster General Patrick Donahoe is ending his reign the way he began – undermining, degrading, and weakening the public Postal Service he was supposed to lead, and spitting in the eyes of tens of thousands of proud postal employees. Responsibility for the upheaval in the lives of postal workers rests squarely on his shoulders,” the union president said. - See more at: http://www.apwu.org/news/web-news-article/service-cuts-disrupt-workers%E2%80%99-lives#sthash.YzYzT19Y.dpuf ..."
