Protesters Rally To Bring Back Saturday Delivery
DENVER (CBS4)– Protesters gathered in downtown Denver on Sunday to rally to bring back Saturday delivery.
The group “Delivering for America” rallied at Zeckendorf Plaza Park in Denver. There were a few dozen demonstrators at the protest.
Last month the U.S. Postal Service announced plans to move a five-day-a-week service to save $2 billion dollars.
Protesters believe the move is a hit on constitutional rights.
“The Postal Service’s plan to end Saturday mail delivery is an attack on this great institution, the customers who need it and the employees who support it,” said one protester.
Starting in August letter carriers will no longer deliver first-class mail on Saturdays.
Packages, mail order prescriptions, Priority and Express Mail will still be delivered to homes and businesses.
Post offices will also keep their Saturday hours.
