The question of, “Will mail be delivered on Labor Day?” is answered with a big “No.” All post offices and federal offices of any kind will be closed for the holiday, which means no businesses nor homes will get mail. This also counts out USPS packages. According to USPS, because it is a federal holiday, all federal offices are closed. However, all federal workers are still paid for the day.

Fedex and UPS are also closed for Labor Day. Holidays that Fedex ARE open for include Martin Luther King Jr. Day, Presidents Day, Columbus Day, and Veterans Day. Check out Fedex’s full holiday schedule when you click here. And for the UPS holiday delivery schedule, click here.
