The Crook Who Stole Mail Delivery
Door-to-door mail delivery by the Postal Service could soon be put on the chopping block as House lawmakers look for services to cut in order to help the floundering independent agency stay afloat.
In a bill introduced by Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) earlier this month, he proposes an alternate centralized delivery system, which would transition away from the traditional door-to-door practices that allow many Americans to receive mail directly at their residences. Taking input from patrons and local officials, the bill says the Postal Service would be tasked with establishing new delivery points where groups of people would have their mail delivered.
The latest effort to reform the Postal Service has already been met with opposition. Cliff Guffey, president of American Postal Workers Union, released a statement this week saying that the bill would have a "devastating effect" on postal workers and the agency's patrons. Guffey claimed the legislation fell short on issues of collective bargaining issues and service standards.
Huh, huh, Mr. Issa, tell us that won’t you?
Subject: I just signed this petition — will you join me? Rep. Darrell Issa is trying to pass a bill that would not only end Saturday delivery by the postal service, but also door-to-door mail service for millions. We must stop this outrageous attempt to kill the USPS and hand its business to FedEx and UPS.
