The Guardian’s Sam Levine reports:
There have been reports of widespread mail delays across the US in recent weeks. Postal workers and Democrats have blamed recent changes Postmaster General Louis DeJoy implemented, including cutting overtime and telling workers to leave the mail behind if it was going to delay them on routes.
Postmaster General Louis DeJoy will likely discuss his decision to back away from the proposed operational changes to USPS when he testifies before Congress.
DeJoy has agreed to testify before the Senate oversight committee on Friday, and he will appear before the House oversight committee on Monday.
