Letter carrier Jose Hernandez, an Albuquerque, NM Branch 504 member, was shot and killed on his route Monday, April 22, after trying to defuse a dispute. The Army veteran was a 12-year carrier. “We are deeply saddened at the loss of Jose Hernandez, who was doing what so many carriers do every day on the route: watching out for the well-being of their customers. Our thoughts and prayers are with Jose’s family and loved ones,” NALC President Fredric Rolando said.
