Dear John: I retired three years ago as a letter carrier.
Postal management cares about one thing: how long it takes to do your route. This results in cut corners, falsified scans on parcels and supervisors throwing mail out.
It’s all about keeping man-hours down and saving on labor costs.
Ask the National Association of Letter Carriers in DC: If a new carrier does not meet the numbers, he is fired.
It’s not a service! It is run with no accountability. Congress doesn’t give a damn. Managers get bonuses if hours are down. Management harasses carriers to skip lunch and breaks, and turns its back if employees work off the clock. Please investigate what’s really going on. G.R.
