USPS must bargain with rural letter carriers over cyber breach, NLRB says

The NRLCA contends that former Postmaster General Pat Donahoe deliberately kept Postal Service employees in the dark about the cyber breach. The delayed notice, it said, made it impossible for employees to immediately safeguard their personal information.

The Postal Service admitted in November that at least two months earlier, hackers had accessed more than 800,000 current and former employees’ sensitive information, including their names, Social Security numbers, and addresses. Once news broke, members of Congress came forward to say Postal officials had told them of the breach on two separate occasions before making it public. They also questioned the agency’s treatment of employees.

Since then, the Postal Service discovered that the hacker may have accessed up to 485,000 people’s medical records.
