Going Postal Again
On November 28, 2006 two postal workers died in San Francisco. Postal worker and National Association Letter Carrier 214 member Julius Tart who had been an employee since 1988 had been disciplined for not finishing his work on time. A massive speedup is going on within the postal system with automation and increased pressure on the workers to mold themselves to the machines. Many postal workers are forced to work at night delivering mail in the dark.
Weeks after being written up by his supervisor Genevieve Paez, Julius Tart went to her house and killed her. He then committed suicide. This incident shocked some postal workers but did not surprise others. SF Postal workers talk about the stressful and deadly conditions in the post office and why postal workers feel they have no future. They also discuss why they feel they are being terrorized.
A note by Julius Tart was found later addressed to his mother referred to himself in the past tense and complained about conditions at work.
Also Labor On The Job will program a short video segment from the Royal Oaks, Michigan postal murders that led to deaths on the job in 1992. That LOJ show which was programmed on 2/27/1992 was titled "The Deadly Connection, Postal Workers, Stress And Murder On The Job.
