Last week I sent out a letter to Postal Service officials encouraging them to hire local residents (including retirees) to work local routes that they are familiar with. The Postal Service already hires part time employees to fill in for permanent postal service carriers who are out sick, on vacation or who have retired and have not yet been replaced.
Most of the complaints I receive (I get daily complaints) complain about the part time carriers who are not familiar with the routes. Many people have complained about not getting bills, checks, tax notices, prescription drugs.
Roxanne Hosein, Westchester Postal Service manager, likes the suggestion I made and advises that the Postal Service is currently hiring part time local residents. I hope they will consider my suggestion of matching local resident to their own neighborhood. I feel that the local postmasters should have more flexibility in hiring people from the community who they believe will do a great job and be responsive. I believe that retirees other residents who are out of work may take more pride in their part time responsibilities if they distribute mail to their local neighborhoods -and that they will be less careless.
A copy of Ms. Hosein’s e mail to me and the job announcement is posted below.
