Postal workers protest end to Saturday service
Hundreds of postal workers who oppose plans to cut home delivery from six days to five have picketed outside U.S. Postal Service offices in Michigan.
The Detroit News says about 600 people marched in protest Sunday at a post office in suburban Southfield.
MLive.com says about 100 postal workers from around the state demonstrated Sunday in Grand Rapids. They carried signs and waved at passing cars.
The signs included the messages "Save America's Postal Service" and "5-Day Is the Wrong Way to Save the Postal Service."
Picketing also was planned at post offices around the country.
The Postal Service has been facing rising deficits. Postmaster General Patrick R. Donahoe last month announced plans to cut Saturday delivery, saying it would save $2 billion a year.
