Amy Puhalski, president of American Postal Workers Union Local 281, told the Holland Sentinel on Wednesday that USPS officials this week took the electrical components out of two mail sorting machines in downtown Grand Rapids.
Puhalski said the machines sort letters and that their removal would delay mail processing time.
She said the machines are unusable without the components and that officials have not given word to put them back in.
“They’re setting us up to fail,” he said. “Even the supervisors and the managers get frustrated. The people like me that have been around 20, 25, 30 years, we’re very concerned because we see the degradation of our service.”
