Chicago postal workers are threatening to stop delivering mail after a second worker was shot while on the job this year.
“Any letter carrier who does not feel safe in any one of these communities then they are not to deliver mail and customers have to pick up their mail,” said Mack Julion, Branch 11 union president of the National Association of Letter Carriers. “We are not going to have another situation where the letter carrier is shot down.”
The victim in the most recent shooting, a 24-year-old woman, was rushed to the hospital with critical injuries. She is now in stable condition.
