A call for change after alleged mistreatment of Western New York USPS workers during Christmas blizzard
BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) — The deadly Christmas blizzard in Western New York halted essential services including the United States Postal Service.
Months later, federal lawmakers are now fighting to protect Western New York postal workers who worked through the treacherous conditions.
“There were driving bans and yet postal workers were forced to go out and deliver mail during all of this,” Congressman Brian Higgins said.
Higgins, along with Senator Kirsten Gillibrand and Senator Chuck Schumer recently sent a letter to the USPS Inspector General and Postmaster General asking them to investigate mismanagement by postal managers during the storm.
