USPS union says property and vehicles ‘ransacked,’ letter carriers assaulted and robbed by a ‘misguided few’ during nationwide protests

After protests this month following the death of George Floyd, a Black man killed by Minneapolis police officers, the National Association of Letter Carriers union reported assaults, ransacking, and robberies on its vehicles and mail carriers. Violence erupted among multiple parties during the nationwide protests, including vehicles — both civilian and police — driving into protesters.

The NALC, which represents city carriers for the USPS, issued a statement on June 8 saying “postal property and vehicles have been ransacked during the recent wave of civil unrest” and that “letter carriers have been assaulted and robbed on their routes.”

Business Insider reached out to the USPS for more detail on the alleged ransacking, assaults, and robberies, as well as where these incidents occurred.
