USPS workers say they are being forced to end shifts early

without comments

WASHINGTON (WJLA) – Rain, sleet and snow may not stop the United States Postal Service, but fear of paying overtime could keep letters from reaching your mailbox in a timely fashion.

Some Washington, D.C. postal workers say post office management is forcing them off the street early, even when their routes are far from complete. Although a USPS spokeswoman denied any such allegations, carriers tell ABC7 that the newly established rule is being strictly enforced.

“They’re [management] constantly telling us to leave first-class mail, leave packages, everything, and it’s getting ridiculous,” a veteran mail carrier, speaking on a condition of anonymity, told ABC7.
