Magyar Posta puts tracking devices on letter carriers

Analysis

Hungary's state-owned postal company, Magyar Posta, is making its letter carriers carry tracking devices, daily Népszava said on Friday. The paper cited a letter carrier who believed the decision was intended to allow Magyar Posta's management to follow carriers' every move. Magyar Posta confirmed the use of the tracking devices but said their purpose was defensive, ensuring a quick response by police or paramedics in case a letter carrier is attacked or becomes unwell.
