USPS agrees to delay mail processing center closures

Posted:

The U.S. Postal Service has agreed to delay the closing of 252 mail processing centers and 3,700 local post offices until mid-May.

Several in Siouxland are on the list, including the processing center in Norfolk, Nebraska.

The Post Office is forecast to lose a record $14.1 billion next year.

It had planned to begin closing processing centers as early as April, and shutter some post offices early next year.

Last week a group of 18 Senate Democrats signed a letter to congressional leaders asking them to add language to legislation that would halt closings for six months.

Closures could cost 100,000 postal employees their jobs.
