PASCO, Wash. — Recent cutbacks and changes at our local Post Offices mean it’s taking longer for your mail to get to your home — and also out of town. An influx of Christmas cards and packages will only add a new burden. KEPR talked with the President from the local Postal Workers Union and USPS to get both sides about how your mail is being impacted in new ways.
"It’s written in the law that we provide universal, low cost service to every American citizen," said John Michael Wald, Local American Postal Workers Union President.But he says that’s exactly what you’re not seeing with mail service in the Tri-Cities right now. Mail processing moved from Pasco to Spokane in July. Since then, bundles of issues have arrived.
