Roanoke, VA – Saturday is the day the Lynchburg postal distribution center will complete its consolidation with the Roanoke processing plant.

However, Saturday’s milestone may not be that big after all — because postal employee union leaders say Roanoke’s number may soon be up too.

All of it will be made official this Saturday which is what has union leaders puzzled.
