First-Class Mail Delays Take Effect Monday

Starting Monday, about half of first-class mail will arrive in three days, greatly reducing overnight mail delivery in the Lansing region, the Lansing State Journal has reported. John Greathouse, legislative director for the Central Michigan Area Local of the APWU told the newspaper, “The mail service that you currently receive is going to be downgraded and slowed down, in some cases dramatically slowed down. They’re getting away from what their primary mission is, which is to serve the American people.”
