Colo. mail carriers protest proposed cutbacks

DENVER — Colorado mail carriers are asking Congress to stop passing temporary budget fixes and give them security from budget cuts.

Postal Service workers rallied Saturday in Denver, saying mail carriers need legislation that guarantees six-day delivery so that they don’t have to continue facing temporary budget fixes every six months, five months or four months as they have been for several years.

The Postal Service is facing a proposed cut in Saturday delivery to help cope with $16 billion in 2012 losses.

According to the Denver Post, mail carriers are also worried that scaling back delivery by even one day could hurt public relations.
