Video shows Westchester postal worker not following protocol

CONGERS -Turn To Tara has obtained exclusive video that captures another Hudson Valley postal worker not following protocol on the job.

The video shows the letter carrier chatting on her cellphone and at times relaxing on someone’s front porch for a full 17 minutes – not once seen delivering any mail to a Congers neighborhood.

The video comes on the heels of the United States Postal Office facing intense criticism for slow and inconsistent mail delivery across the Hudson Valley.

USPS responded by saying, “”We certainly apologize and assure the residents that appropriate measures are being taken to prevent a recurrence. The employee was initially on a break, but the phone conversation extended past the allotted break time. Although the carrier was on a walking route without a vehicle, employee breaks are generally taken in designated public locations, not on private property.”

The video also surfaces less than two weeks after News 12 aired footage of a postal worker in Greenburgh hurling packages at people’s homes.

Mail Fail: USPS loses 30 days worth of Ohio man’s mail, can’t track it down

COLUMBUS, Ohio (WSYX/WTTE) — Jerry Durre, of Gahanna, put a 30-day hold on his mail when he went to visit his son in Scottsdale, Arizona. But when he got back, the mail bin was empty and the mail clerk had no explanation.

“They went back and checked again,” said Durre. “(They said) ‘we have no more mail for you.’ (I asked) ‘well, what happened to it?’ (They said) ‘I have no idea.'”

Durre pressed for answers.

“Each time we would get the same sympathy, ‘oh, I’m terribly sorry this happened,'” he said. “‘We’re going to get to the bottom of it. We’ll call you back.’

To this date, no one has called me back.”
