Mail processing operations in Pasco, Yakima and Wenatchee will move to Spokaneâ€™s processing center on the West Plains, the U.S. Postal Service said today.
The Postal Service will cut more than 300 jobs in Washington as it consolidates mail processing. In addition to the Spokane center absorbing more work, sorting operations in Everett, Olympia and Tacoma will transfer to Seattle.
Spokesman Ernie Swanson says 97 jobs will be cut in Everett, 29 in Olympia, 139 in Tacoma, 19 in Yakima, 20 in Wenatchee and two in Pasco.
