Video: Long Islanders blast USPS for not delivering

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Some Long Island residents who believe the U.S. Postal Service’s motto needs to be revised are not alone in their struggle.

Just last week residents in one Long Island community blasted the U.S. Postal Service, saying not only has the harsh winter been getting in the way of mail deliveries, but that they weren’t even getting mail on nice weather days.

As CBS 2′s Carolyn Gusoff reported Wednesday, New Hyde Park residents are apparently not alone in their quest for their mail deliveries. Several zip codes across Long Island and the country are seeing inconsistent U.S. mail service.

    On a daily basis first class mail is sent back to the plant to be run. The mail comes to the unit on a Saturday from the plant, the Supervisor looks over the trays and instead of having the clerks sort the FC it is held out and returned to the plant again to be run thus is delayed 2 additional days for delivery on Monday. Carriers are being replaced with inexperienced CCA’s who are given impossible tasks, carriers and CCA’s are instructed to be off the streets by 4 pm in our area and any mail not delivered by 4 pm is to be brought back to the office for delivery the next day. The problem is that if a resident lives at the end of a route they may not get their mail for a week at a time. With the heavy snow mail has been delayed even more. Mail is being looped daily around the country resulting in substantial delays in delivery, after all how many times do you need to truck the same mail back and forth to the plant it came from before you decide to deliver it?
