U.S. Postal Service "Unlikely Star of the Holiday-Shipping Season"

Wednesday, January 8, 2014

U.S. Postal Service (Metropolitan Washington Council, AFL-CIO)"There was a lot of post-Christmas discussion about how UPS fumbled its last-minute holiday deliveries, and FedEx apologized for some late-arriving packages, too,” reported Bloomberg Businessweek in a recent article posted on NALC 3825’s website. “What went largely unmentioned, however, was the stellar performance of the U.S. Postal Service. The government-run competitor was swamped with parcels just like UPS and FedEx were, with holiday package volume 19 percent higher than the same period late year. But there were no widespread complaints about tardy deliveries by USPS. The postal service may not be celebrated for speed, but when it comes to getting stuff to people on time in the holidays, the 238-year-old agency is tough to beat.” “Full credit for a job well-done is due to the hard-working members of the Letter Carriers and Postal Workers,” said Metro Washington Council president Jos Williams. photograph by Stephen Lam courtesy Getty Images
