FORT WAYNE, Ind. (www.incnow.tv) – Fort Wayne postal workers rallied Sunday afternoon to send a message to congress regarding the future of USPS.
The rally was in support of keeping Saturday mail delivery, which the United States Postal Service (USPS) wants to stop in order to fix some financial issues.
Local postal workers and community members gathered at the U.S. postal office on S. Clinton St. holding signs.
USPS wants to stop Saturday mail delivery in August to meet a federal mandate to cover retirement costs for future employees.
One local letter carrier says stopping the delivery of Saturday mail will affect too many people.
“The American public wants six day delivery, small businesses depend on it, the elderly depend on it, Americans depend on it,” he said.
Sunday’s rally was not just a local event—rallies were held in cities across the country.
