US Postal Service workers found rank-and-file committee

Fellow USPS workers,

Rural letter carriers have seen their wages plummet under the Rural Route Evaluated Compensation System (RRECS), city carriers are working without a contract, and mail handlers, clerks and other crafts see their jobs threatened as US Postmaster General Louis DeJoy’s “Deliver for America” plan aims to close a third of post offices in the coming years.

Within weeks of implementing RRECS in May, the majority of rural carriers reported a marked decline in wages, in many cases between $10,000-20,000 per worker. Six US senators wrote DeJoy to say that 66 percent of rural carriers had seen their paychecks shrink, while at least 14,000 lost 20 percent or more of their wages.
