Postal Service To Rescind Guidance That Caused Mail Delays

Postmaster DeJoy ordered to rescind all changes

The U.S. Postal Service has agreed to rescind guidance issued over the summer that resulted in nationwide mail delays, according to a proposed order filed in federal court Tuesday, after the guidance restricting late and extra mail trips sparked widespread controversy and was struck down by a series of court rulings.

A proposed order was filed in three lawsuits brought against the USPS—by mail-in voters, voter advocacy group Vote Forward and the NAACP—which stipulates the USPS will issue a notice by Wednesday saying guidelines issued in July “are rescinded.”

The directive, which was issued under new Postmaster General Louis DeJoy as a cost-cutting measure, barred mail trucks from departing late or making extra trips to deliver mail, even if it resulted in mail getting left behind or delayed.

The guidance resulted in nationwide mail delays that affected millions of pieces of mail per week, as mail that could not be processed before the trucks left was left behind—and some trucks reportedly were sent out completely empty.
