Have you noticed a slowdown in your mail delivery? It is just going to get worse, according to postal employees, once the Cape Girardeau Postal Sorting Center is closed on the 18th. Postal Workers Union 4088 President, Greg Davidson tells KZIM KSIM he gets asked all the time about why bills and other mail are arriving late.
He adds that the postal service would be making a profit if not for the government.
The services are set to be consolidated in St. Louis, but that facility is already overloaded from other closures causing the current delays and misdirected mail. Some 70 employees locally are in limbo waiting to see if they will retain a job. Davidson urges you to reach out to your US Senators and Representative, as well as the Post Regulatory Commission.
