In mid-July, Postmaster General Louis DeJoy implemented policies that slowed down and delayed the mail, including arbitrarily canceling overtime and limiting mail transportation runs. Mobilization by postal union workers, public outcry, and hearings called by the U.S. House of Representatives Oversight Committee resulted in a temporary suspension of those policies, but the threat to mail service remains high.
Postal workers are making three immediate demands of our elected officials and of Postmaster General DeJoy:
- Provide at least $25 billion in immediate support for the Postal Service.
- Permanently end the mail slowdown policies introduced by Postmaster General DeJoy.
- Ensure public confidence in voting-by-mail by providing all necessary resources to ensure the most timely delivery of election mail possible.
