The Postal Regulatory Commission still has to approve the higher rates.
In December 2020, packages were “up to the ceiling” in Philadelphia, local American Postal Workers Union president Nick Casselli told CNN.
“I’ve been in postal for 35 years, I’ve never seen what I’m seeing,” he said.
In Tulsa, Oklahoma, James Seaman told CNN affiliate KJRH at the end of January that he was still receiving holiday cards that were originally mailed out in December.
“You can’t rely on getting things through the mail right now in a timely manner,” Seaman told KJRH.
