Postal Worker Death

A dangerous stretch of Greenbriar Road in Clermont County, turned deadly on Tuesday.

Batavia mail carrier Gary Bainum was working his route, when he lost control of his vehicle and it flipped over on top of him. Bainum was pronounced dead at the scene and witnesses say that speed was a factor in the crash.  However, Bainum's fellow mail carriers say there may be another cause to the accident.

Mail Carrier's Union Representative Loretta Henderson says that the hostile work environment at the Batavia Post Office, may have put Bainum on edge. She says that mail carriers are under a great deal of pressure to deliver the mail as quickly as possible, and the consequences for being late are getting to be too much.  She says the carriers are yelled at and harrassed, which makes the job more stressful than it needs to be.

FOX 19 contacted the Regional U.S.P.S. Representative, Ray Jacobs. Jacobs says he was unaware of the hostile work environment at the Batavia location, but he plans on looking into it. He emphasizes that safety is the number one priority for the United States Post Office.
