New efforts to keep the Duluth Post Office and Processing facility open were laid out in a public form Wednesday afternoon. 

Government leaders, union representatives and concerned citizens voiced concerns yet again over the possible closure of the facility and the potential problems related to consolidating postal facilities. 

“The more they cut back on the service standards it drives more mail out of the system and that doesn’t just affect us.  The mailing industry supports 8 million jobs in this country,” said Warren Whemas, President of the Minnesota Association of Letter Carriers. 

Since facility consolidation began earlier this year, some Duluth postal workers have been required to drive to the Twin Cities to complete their workday.
