Our FOIA request 📄 to USPS seeks two related sets of database records:

Our request also seeks all relevant database documentation.

We’ve submitted this request in the context of USPS rolling out the Rural Route Evaluated Compensation System (RRECS), which the NRLCA says would result in pay cuts for two-thirds of rural mail routes reevaluated by the system.

Rural mail carriers have reported confusion and frustration with the changes, and allege it contains substantial errors, yet USPS has shared little information publicly that would allow independent observers to evaluate the changes introduced by the system, or to compare them to historical, pre-RRECS route compensation changes.
