    So, Trump put one of his top campaign donors in as the new Postmaster General (he has already donated $360,000 to Trump's campaign in just the past six months), and have also been stacking the Board of Governors for the USPS with other Republicans so that they can control the majority of the system. This past week they instituted new policies without discussing them with any of our four unions and have completely eliminated the "Every piece, every day" slogan of management. From our Central PA district management we've been told that we need to cut so many employee hours that it would be the "equivilant" of shutting down every hub facility for 15 days, or eliminating one of three tours from each hub facility for 28 days. They have already started dismantling processing machines nationwide, every facility is losing some. Again, all of this done with little to no warning.

    Their other big target for cost savings is that everything is now being run on trucking schedules, nothing is allowed to be held or leave late. We can't even request extra trucking runs. Management is now threatening to bill any employee who holds a truck or adds an extra trip to cover the costs as those trips are made through outside contractors. If the mail is not processed by time the truck is destined to leave, it will sit until the next day. This past week we've had several cities that simply received no letter mail for the day because the processing was not completed on time. Because of this strict adherence to schedules with no wiggle room, mail has been stacking up for the past week that normally would have been delivered already.

    In short, don't expect anything to arrive on time. It will get there when it gets there. And don't be surprised to see the prices skyrocket. Trump is even less likely to sign off on Congress' attempt to give us funding we desperately need since he has direct control over the agency.

    That sucks, and I fully assume that this will play into his attack on absentee voting come November.

    A country's Postal System is always a good indicator of the level of competence of a government.
