TOP STORIES
Despite Struggling With Widespread Mail Delays, USPS is Processing More Ballots on Time
10.26.2020 - GovExec reports: "For now, the efforts appear to be paying dividends: for the week Oct. 16, USPS processed 96% of in-bound ballots and 97% of outbound ballots on time. That is up from 87% and 94%, respectively, one month prior and marks a fairly consistent rise, according to data USPS made public in a recent court filing." - Comments (Count)
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)
