We Are All Real People
- We can all be exposed to COVID-19 – Including Postal Workers – at any time, and become seriously ill.
- We may all have to self-quarantine for 14 days or more because we’ve been exposed to COVID-19 – including Postal Workers
So, where are my freakin’ coupons!?!?
“Besides cutting overtime, the new plan halts late trips that are sometimes needed to ensure on-time delivery. If postal distribution centers are running late, “they will keep the mail for the next day,″ Postal Service leaders say in a document obtained by The Associated Press. “One aspect of these changes that may be difficult for employees is that — temporarily — we may see mail left behind or mail on the workroom floor or docks,″ another document says.”
“Packages that used to take no more than three days to get delivered are now being delayed for weeks. “Our hands are tied,” one letter carrier told Motherboard, “and we are constantly set up for failure.”
“The cases (of COVID-19) are exacerbating staffing shortages, said Nick Casselli, president of APWU Local 89. When an employee tests positive, they cannot work for at least two weeks, and employees who have been in contact with them are forced to quarantine for 14 days. If there is no one to fill in, the mail doesn’t go out.”
So, whose fault is it?
I need someone to yell at!
Quite honestly, it’s nobody’s fault but if you have to point fingers point them at COVID-19 and the White House.
Our vendors are clipping and shipping as fast as they ever have. If you place your order before Noon Monday through Friday it will ship that same day. But once the vendors turn those envelopes over to the Post Office there is absolutely nothing we can do to speed up delivery or make sure it’s delivered to the correct address. Period.
