USPS General Counsel’s letter to the House Oversight Committee

Maloney and three other Democrats on the Oversight Committee sought information about the changes in July and warned they could have “negative impacts on service standards and cause significant delays in mail delivery.” Among the operational shifts within the Postal Service outlined in documents made public are eliminating overtime and restricting certain letter carrier activities, as well as limiting extra trips to deliver mail.

Postal Service told the committee that neither of the two documents they identified came from Postal Service Headquarters and “should not be treated as official statements of Postal Service policy.” Thomas Marshall, the Postal Service’s general counsel, said in a letter to lawmakers that its management is working on a business plan to ensure its financial stability and is taking steps to “increase operational efficiency by re-emphasizing existing operational standards.”

Marshall said that in anticipation of the November election, the Postal Service is working with election officials to prepare.
