The U.S. Postal Service today released its annual report for Fiscal Year 2020.
Here is NALC President Fredric Rolando’s statement on the report:
“These figures, driven by the economic shutdown’s impact on first-class mail, show the need for federal assistance during the pandemic, just as other sectors have received. Over the past eight months and counting, the United States Postal Service has demonstrated its essential value, with tens of millions of Americans sheltering at home during this public health crisis while postal employees deliver needed supplies, medications and much more. Meanwhile, the Postal Service has proven vital in protecting the core of our democracy—the right of citizens to choose their leaders—by facilitating an historic volume of mail ballots during that same health crisis. Perhaps never in its 245 years has the public post office been more indispensable to the country.”
