‘It’s hotter than firecrackers’: San Antonio postal workers rally for better working conditions

August 21, 2023

SAN ANTONIO – San Antonio postal workers and supporters rallied on Sunday for what they say is a basic human need — water.

Earlier this month, several South Texas lawmakers sent a letter to the postmaster general, asking them to start giving letter carriers water again on their routes.

Letter carriers said USPS stopped giving bottled water and returned to water fountains due to the end of the COVID-19 pandemic.

“We’re all concerned about it, and we care,” said Homer Hernandez, Alamo Branch 421′s political director.

Hernandez said he and his fellow mail carriers want relief.

“We work about eight to 10 hours out in the heat,” he said.
