Postal workers planning rally to save the postal system

The U.S. Postal Service is looking for ways to get by on a tight budget, but it has local postal workers concerned that it will mean job losses.

Tuesday postal workers across the country are designating it A Day of Action to Save the Postal Service. Locally, they'll be rallying for support at City Hall in Colorado Springs.

"They have the right to do this, we respect their rights to do it, and we don't suspect any issues or problems here in Colorado Springs," says Ron Perry, a customer relations spokesman for the Postal Service. "I'm sure that they'll be very professional in how they conduct themselves."

The rally is Tuesday evening, starting at 4:30 p.m. in front of City Hall.

The future of the postal processing center on Fountain and Academy will likely be discussed. It's currently on a list of 250 centers nationwide that the postal service is looking into closing. No decisions are expected until February.
