LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI)- – Postal workers are saying there shouldn’t be any cause for concern if you see your mail deliverer out of uniform. USPS spokesperson, Mary Dando, said these workers are new hires. They are being put on a route immediately, but are waiting for their uniforms.
"As you can imagine, in any situation, especially when people wear a uniform, it’s just [takes] a little bit of time from the transition from the academy to working on the streets regularly," Dando says.
There is a way to make sure your mail carrier is legitimate. Some may be out of uniform, but all will wear a USPS hat. It will have the USPS eagle on it.
