US Postal Service leaders can’t keep Trump’s lies — or their own stories — straight

Pete Coradi , an American Postal Workers Union [APWU] national business agent, calls the move “disgraceful.” In more than 35 years with the Postal Service, Coradi said that he’s never seen anything like the outright removal of nearly 700 sorting machines from mail processing plants nationwide.

“I’ve been involved with the USPS since 1984,” Coradi told me. “What is currently being done with the massive delays of mail is nothing I’ve ever experienced. This is not ‘routine’ at all.”
The rationale for removing the sorting machines at this time, further appears bogus because the USPS refuses to elaborate on the ultimate disposition of the equipment. If the machines are simply being “moved around the network” — then where are they going? USPS won’t say.

“They’re removing these machines — they’re not replacing them,” Coradi told me. “And it’s only going to slow down service even more.”
-----This past week, people and businesses in at least three cities and towns around Buffalo, New York — Lancaster, Depew, North Tonawanda — saw days when they didn’t get any mail deliveries at all.

“We’ve had entire towns that didn’t get their mail,” on certain days, said Frank Resetarits, president of the American Postal Workers Union Local 374, told the Buffalo News. “I’m talking about some of the bigger ones – East Aurora, Lancaster.”

Coradi, the postal union business agent, said this unknown in the history of our mail system, which is older than our Constitution.
