TUCSON - A rally to protest the closure of the Cherrybell Main Post Office, and the elimination of hundreds of jobs, is planned for Monday.
Organizing group Jobs for Justice says folks can turn out from 7am to 9am at the Postal Workers Union office at 2937 E 22nd Monday morning.
The Cherrybell office is one of 461 mail processing locations nationwide the Postal Service has identified for consolidation. The Tucson office is on the list for consolidation by February 2013.
The U.S. Post Office says this is part of a $1.2 billion cost reduction.
