NALC: Call Congress and Ask Your Representative to Support Door Delivery

Support door delivery: On Aug. 1, Reps. Susan Davis (D-CA), David Joyce (R-OH) and Peter King (R-NY) introduced H. Res. 711, which calls on Congress to take all appropriate measures to ensure the continuation of door delivery for all business and residential customers. There have recent attempts to reduce door-delivery service in favor of installing cluster boxes, a change that would involve USPS levying a fee on customers who want to continue door delivery. H. Res. 711 is an important measure for showcasing the role of universal service to all Americans. Ask your representative to pledge support for door delivery and to co-sponsor this bipartisan resolution.

    This is an interesting article. Mail delivery services are changing. Cluster boxes are a good idea, less work for the mail carriers, making them more efficient. And consumers have the option of paying to have continuing door delivery. Won’t this put some post men and women out of work? Positives and negatives to this story! Thanks for sharing it, Richard.
