A new Congressional investigation also found recent absenteeism problems at postal centers in Chicago, Philadelphia and Baltimore, exacerbating worker shortages.

“It slows down everything and then affects obvious reliability for customers,” Rep. Gerry Connolly, from Virginia. “We need to make sure that the Postal Service is reliable and that people are on deck doing the jobs.”

Anuluoha is encouraging her customers to shop early.

“We’re starting to take our requests for packages for Christmas delivery,” Anuluoha said. “We don’t want to wait and see. So, we want to be proactive and guarantee those pieces to get there well before the time that they’re needed.

Postal worker representatives say the end result could be after-dark, even night-time deliveries between now and then, and the possibility of long lines as workers try to unearth themselves from all the envelopes and boxes.
