Some Mail Is Delayed Five to Six Days in NYC, Postal Workers’ Union Says
Rep. Carolyn Maloney is sponsoring legislation to reverse the postal policy changes until the pandemic ends. She heads the House committee overseeing the Postal Service, and met Wednesday with staff at the Morgan General Mail Facility in Midtown. It handles nearly all of the mail coming in and out of the city.
“They are being told there will only be limited deliveries from this service, limited overtime, they are taking away machines that process the mail,” said Maloney. “They are cutting hours across the country. And this is slowing down the mail precisely when we’re more dependent on it.”
