Keep the pressure on Cruz and Cornyn to #SaveThePostOffice
First, read this exclusive interview with William Moody, President of the National Association of Letter Carriers, Local Branch 181—written by our very own Annie Hartnett.
“It was reported to me by the Mail Handlers Union that one flat sorting machine has been removed from the facility and four letter sorting machines have been roped off and are not being used. Each letter sorting machine can sort 30,000 letters/hour. Also, letter carriers are being instructed to leave the office for their route by 8:30 AM each morning whether their mail is complete or not. Also, no second trips if parcels are late and no over time.”
