Postal workers in the Dallas area have experienced a spike in robberies and armed assaults, and conditions have gotten so bad that federal authorities have opened an investigation.

According to the National Association of Letter Carriers (NALC), a union representing American postal workers, around 2,000 letter carriers have been victims of armed robbery since 2020.

Recent incidents include a USPS mail carrier being assaulted at an apartment complex in Far North Dallas.

Another worker was assaulted a few weeks earlier at Sophia Apartments on Hudnall Street in Dallas. And in late December, another postal worker was assaulted on Colonial Avenue in Dallas.

On Thursday, NALC held a rally in Dallas to raise awareness about threats to worker safety.

“Letter carriers are uniting to demand protection from violence and crime at work NOW,” NALC posted on X, formerly known as Twitter. “If you’re in the area, come out and support the letter carriers as we continue to make our message loud and clear: #EnoughIsEnough!”

“We respect our employees’ rights to express their opinions and participate in after-hours picketing,” a spokesperson told Fox News Digital.

Last May, USPS launched an initiative to combat mail theft, improve employee security and strengthen consumer protections.
