Employees will soon receive 5-by-3.25-inch durable cards that explain Delivering for America, the organization’s 10-year plan to achieve financial stability. Each card will address a different topic and feature information that employees can reference when discussing the plan with co-workers and customers.
The first card focuses on this year’s holiday delivery season, noting that USPS plans to hire more than 40,000 seasonal workers while installing 112 new package sorting machines at facilities across the nation.
Additionally, the card explains that the organization is redesigning its processing network to improve mail and package flow and shifting more packages from outside air transportation providers to the more reliable postal surface transportation network.
The card also features a QR code that, when scanned with a mobile device, displays a video message from Postmaster General Louis DeJoy.
USPS mailed the cards to non-bargaining unit employees’ home addresses last week. In bargaining unit workplaces, managers are distributing the cards to employees.
New cards will be distributed early next year.
