The Postal Service Office of Inspector General recently concluded that the Postal Service had violated the Hatch Act during the 2016 election by granting 2,776 days off of leave without pay to help the union in its campaigning efforts.
Although the IG said the Postal Service violated the Hatch Act, it did not recommend any disciplinary action. See The Hatch Act, Unions, and Postal Service
The House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform has now taken an interest in the matter and recently sent a letter to the Postal Service’s Office of Inspector General asking to take a closer look at their findings and documents from the investigation.
The letter does not state whether or not the House Committee plans to hold a hearing to look into the matter further. That presumably is something the Committee would decide after it reviews the requested information from the IG.
A copy of the letter is included below.
