TOP STORIES
USPS Delivering More Mail On Time After Walking Back DeJoy's Reforms
10.15.2020 - GovExec reports: "On-time delivery of First-Class mail--which included regular letters and other non-"junk" pieces--still remains far below its 2020 high point of around 93% before the novel coronavirus pandemic took hold and the 92% on-time delivery rate USPS saw over the summer before DeJoy's changes went into effect. Still, some observers see the recent rollbacks of the postmaster general's initiatives as responsible for the Postal Service's recent improved performance." - Comments (Count)
USPS instructs employees to restore extra mail trips and some processing machines
9.25.2020 - GovExec reports: "The U.S. Postal Service has informed employees they should restart late and extra trips between facilities and reconnect some processing equipment as the agency attempts to come in compliance with a national injunction aimed at rolling back widespread mail delays ahead of the election." - The USPS claimed it can't restore some mail sorting machines because it 'dismantled' them - Comments (Count)
LA Times: Rigid Dispatch Schedules Brought Postal Chaos
9.21.2020 - LA Times reports: "Workers who spoke to The Times described troubling details about how the rigid schedules have played out: Some trucks have traveled empty, and mail left behind has accumulated at massive processing centers, creating backlogs in a system that is not designed to store mail." - The Guardian: Revealed: evidence shows huge mail slowdowns after Trump ally took over - Forbes: Infographic - Comments (Count)
Washington Post: Newly revealed USPS documents show an agency struggling to manage Trump, Amazon and the pandemic
9.17.2020 - Washington Post reports: "The documents, which mostly span March and April, depict an agency in distress, as its deteriorating finances collided with a public-health emergency and a looming election that would be heavily reliant on absentee ballots. During that period, the USPS occasionally relied on the legal counsel of well-connected Republicans, including Stefan C. Passantino, who once served as a top White House lawyer under President Trump." - Postal Service feared Trump's rhetoric could cost it billions in Amazon business, documents reveal - American Oversight published Megan Brennan emails in August (used by Washington Post story) - White House axed plan to send five masks to every household - Comments (Count)
