Postal Consolidation Could Cost Twin Falls Jobs

Tonight the Twin Falls City Council will hear from the local Postal union about a proposal to consolidate the Twin Falls postal processing center with the Boise processing center.  The possibility of this happening has been on the table for some time.  It’s just one of the moves the US Postal Service is considering in order to help cut its multi-million dollar yearly operating deficit.  The Postal Service says such a consolidation plan could save over $620,000 a year without affecting mail service in the Magic Valley.  However, Donna Meyer, of the American Postal Workers Union Local 179 wrote a letter to the City Council informing them the consolidation plan would eliminate 20 to 30 jobs locally and would have a major impact on the local economy.  The Postal Union has prepared a presentation for the council members at the meeting this evening.  The Postal Service will also host a public meeting on the consolidation plan at 6 o’clock tomorrow evening in the Fine Art’s Theater at the College of Southern Idaho.
