Indiana Postal Workers are urging Congress to provide them with funding.

The Indiana Postal Workers Union says mail carriers are troubled by recent delays in delivery times due to changes in the national postal service policies.

Union President Doug Brown told Indiana Public Radio that mailing of first class letters has decreased significantly during the pandemic.

Brown says some mail sorting machines have already been paused or disassembled in cities across the state, and others are scheduled to be removed. As of Tuesday the removals have been temporarily suspended until after the election.
