Forget the rain, sleet and snow. Outsourcing is what worries a major postal workers union. Concerned that the U.S. Postal Service plans to step up use of contractors to deliver mail in cities and suburban areas, the National Association of Letter Carriers is lobbying Congress to get involved and study the use of contract delivery services. The union plans to draw attention to the issue by picketing postal headquarters on L’Enfant Plaza on Monday.
