WGEM.com: Quincy News, Weather, Sports, and Radio Video: USPS says late mail delivery in Quincy, IL 'not a normal occurrence'


QUINCY, Ill. (WGEM) - Many Quincy residents noticed their mail was delivered much later than normal on Tuesday, but U.S. Postal Service Officials say that won't continue.

United States Postal Service spokesperson Valerie Welsch said some residents did receive deliveries as late as 8 p.m. Tuesday night, but only because it was the day after a holiday.

"That was not a normal occurrence," Welsch said. "The day after a holiday is always a very heavy mail day, so carriers are usually out later than usual."

Welsch said truck arrival times were off that day, putting carriers behind. She said the USPS is making a lot of changes to the network that are causing truck arrival times to fluctuate.

Mail carrier Tina Philllips said the late deliveries were not just because of the holiday, and she said it's been a trend for a while now.

So, how many postal jobs are leaving Tulsa again?

TULSA - Since the U.S. Postal Service announced plans to cut jobs at its Tulsa mail processing center, there has been confusion about the number of jobs that would be lost and if any would remain.

In February, USPS announced it was consolidating its Tulsa processing and distribution center with one in Oklahoma City.

Since about 600 people work at the Tulsa facility, many thought that 600 was the number of employees who would lose their jobs completely.

In actuality, it's significantly less than that.
