Re: USPS Cyber Security Breach
11/10/2014 - The security breach in the Postal Service’s data systems that compromised personal information about postal employees, including all active and some retired workers, is a very troubling matter.

We do not know at this point whether management did everything in their power to protect our privacy, but they bear the ultimate responsibility.
