From KJRH TV Tulsa:
TULSA – Since the U.S. Postal Service announced plans to cut jobs at its Tulsa mail processing center, there has been confusion about the number of jobs that would be lost and if any would remain.
Since about 600 people work at the Tulsa facility, many thought that 600 was the number of employees who would lose their jobs completely.
Tulsa Mayor Dewey Bartlett was surprised to learn the actual figures when he met with USPS officials in Washington, D.C. last week.
“We were told it would result in a 150-175 jobs being lost and more than 400 remaining,” said Bartlett.
But a USPS spokesperson, who wasn’t present at the meeting, confirmed to 2News that those 400 jobs wouldn’t remain in Tulsa.
The jobs will be transferred to Oklahoma City.
