More Mail Trucks Burn Up; Letter Carriers Union Issues Warning

As more mail trucks burn up, the national labor union for letter carriers has issued a new warning about fires in the vehicles.

The National Association of Letter Carriers – which represents city letter carriers – said the threat is increasing, and risks to letter carriers are growing as the U.S. Postal Service fleet ages.

At least six mail trucks have burned up so far this year, according to a tally by the Postal Times. In 2018, 17 burned, while 42 caught fire in 2016.
