Postal workers in Washington State have reinstalled high-speed mail sorting machines—dismantled after controversial orders from the U.S. Postal Service— despite USPS orders not to put machines back in use.
Sorting machines in Wenatchee, Washington were also reconnected, against the orders of the Postal Service’s head of maintenance, Kevin Couch.
Only two facilities, Seattle-Tacoma and one in Dallas, seem to be ignoring the Postal Service’s directive to leave decommissioned sorting machines out of use.
Good trouble. Necessary trouble.
Let’s hope this heroic disobedience inspires every USPS sorting facility to do the same. Then, when DeJoy tries to re-destroy the machines, the world will be watching.
With any luck, there are some lawyers out there who will, pro bono, help these patriotic mail carriers keep their jobs. After all, they are only upholding the oath they took to keep their appointed rounds.
