Postal Service Mulls Future Of Saginaw Jobs 8-31-2010

U.S. Postal Service employees in Saginaw are organizing an informational picket on Thursday.
The demonstration is aimed at informing the public of the benefits of keeping a six-day mail week.
The U.S. Postal Service is conducting a study that could impact 200 regional jobs. USPS could decide to put the processing of Saginaw mail in the hands of a Pontiac post office.
The picket is from noon until 3 p.m. at the South Washington office.
Postal Service district manager Nancy Rettinhouse said the service "must realign its network to match its resources with mail volume."
The study's recommendation could come within six months.
Last week, hundreds of postal workers attending their national convention in Detroit marched in protest of plans to suspend mail delivery on Saturdays.
The blue-shirted American Postal Workers Union members chanted "Five day, no way" as they walked last Tuesday from Cobo Center to Campus Martius.
The Rev. Jesse Jackson and U.S. Rep. John Conyers also participated.
Mail volume keeps falling as people and businesses switch to the Internet for letters and bills.
Postal officials said dropping Saturday delivery will help fend off projected losses.
Fast Feedback: Would you be upset if U.S. Postal Service delivery was cut back by one day?
