Postal service workers protest distribution center closure

Published On: Apr 01 2013 10:42:05 PM CDT

Mid-Missouri postal service workers gathered outside the Holiday Inn Executive Center in Columbia Monday to protest the closure of Columbia's Mail Distribution Center. 

USPS plans to hold a public meeting at Holiday Inn Tuesday, to explain the plan. 

Approximately one third of local workers could be displaced as mid-Missouri's mail would run through St. Louis or Kansas City facilities. 

The move could save more than $4 million, but a local workers' union isn't buying it. 

Protesters say the proposed cuts are just the beginning.
