Postal Facilities Could See Changes As Early As July
The United States Postal Service announced that it could shut down processing facilities in Yakima and Pasco as early as July.
The consolidation is part of a plan that will save the Postal Service $2.1 billion a year.
Both facilities are in "phase one" of the process, and could be closed anytime between July and early 2013.
The Postal Service announced last year that it will completely shut down the Yakima processing facility moving its services to either Pasco or Spokane, leaving with it 19 jobs.
It was also announced that Pasco's services will move to Spokane, and two employees there will lose their jobs.
A specific date on the consolidations will be announced sometime in June.
