Rural Letter Carriers Receive New Route Changes

Share via

On September 30, rural letter carriers were notified of the latest changes to their weekly routes under the controversial new Rural Route Evaluated Compensation System (RRECS), which will go into effect October 7.

Unlike the first round of evaluations under RRECS, the route hour cuts and lost wages were not as drastic, signaling a correction from the RRECS algorithm. While some rural carriers saw continued losses, others recovered hours lost in previous evaluations. Jamie King, a 13-year rural letter carrier from Florida, told the Prospect, “I recovered about $6,000,” after initially losing $15,000 when RRECS began.
