Residents of the Superior area and Douglas County know how important the Duluth mail sorting facility is to the region. The mail sorting center provides residents of Northwest Wisconsin with safe, efficient mail delivery and provides the region with dozens of good-paying jobs.
Unfortunately, The U.S. Postal Service continues to threaten to close the Duluth mail sorting facility and relocate its operations to the Twin Cities. This decision would be devastating to the citizens of Northwest Wisconsin and Northeast Minnesota. The closure would hurt an important region of our state, delay the delivery of our mail, and put dozens of Letter Carriers and American Postal Workers out of work.
Thankfully, there's still time for the Post Office to change course, but that will only happen if there is an outpouring of community support and if our elected officials intervene to stop it.
Call or write your elected representatives today. Ask them to save the Duluth processing facility to preserve quality mail service and good-paying jobs for Superior and the Douglas County community.
These cuts won’t just hurt Postal Workers – they will hurt every American, every community and every business.
The facts are clear: the Postal Service isn’t broke. Instead, it is facing a manufactured shortfall due to an unfair congressional mandate to pre-pay for costs that won’t be due for decades. No other institution or business in this country is held to such an unrealistic standard, and the plan to dismantle the postal service by ending Saturday delivery will cost all of us. The steep reductions proposed would be devastating to Wisconsin, and would hit senior citizens, small businesses and rural areas the hardest.
