Upcoming postal service changes criticized at meeting

North Andover, MA—Former postal workers and union leaders recently gave a presentation at Memorial Library, attended by a couple dozen residents, about proposed changes by the United State Postal Service.

The changes come as part of the postal services 10-year plan to consolidate delivery centers. According to David Staiger, a current postal worker and speaker at the event, this means Andover carriers will travel to and from a facility in Woburn instead of the Andover Post Office.

According to a letter sent to postal unions, the change is slated for February.

Staiger said this will make it more difficult for postal workers to do their jobs, which would also compound the problem of under staffing.

Staiger and other speakers were also critical of communication by USPS, citing a lack of information about the upcoming changes.
