Postal Unions will mobilize Thursday with a national call-in to Senators to prevent what they see as counter-productive changes to the postal service as well as for the passage of a COVID-19 relief bill. Changes in procedures initiated by the new Postmaster General in July sparked the mobilization. The National Association of Letter Carriers and other postal unions believe that these changes have slowed mail delivery.
To understand the changes, one needs some understanding of how the process of mail delivery has worked. Mail is delivered to postal stations were it is sorted by the carrier for delivery to individual addresses. After that, the carrier the goes out on their route to actually deliver the mail.
