Workers say sexual harassment culture exists within Cedar Rapids Post Office
CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (KCRG) – A culture of persistent sexual harassment exists within a Cedar Rapids Post Office, according to a current and former employee.
Two workers said the United States Postal Service’s Northeast location in Cedar Rapids has a toxic work environment where employees regularly make sexual comments about women’s breasts, butt, genitals, underwear, and sexual performance. Multiple complaints weren’t investigated, according to a former supervisor.
A spokesperson for USPS declined a request for an on-camera interview with our KCRG-TV9 i9 Investigative Team citing an ongoing investigation, which started after we started asking questions. He did send a statement in an email, which said the Postal Service is committed to providing its employees with a safe work environment.
“Any report of sexual harassment is taken seriously and investigated thoroughly,” he wrote. “Employees are encouraged to report any offensive behavior to their supervisor or manager.”
