PITTSBURGH (NewsRadio 1020 KDKA) – Facing the prospect of massive budget cuts, layoffs, and even reducing service to five days a week, United States Postal Service employees are fighting back.

Across the country, members of postal unions are meeting for a day of action Tuesday, trying to preserve more than 100,000 postal service jobs. One local rally is being held outside the South Side offices of Congressman Mike Doyle.

NewsRadio 1020 KDKA’s Mike Pintek talks with Mike Plaskon, executive vice president of Letter Carriers Local 84.  Pintek asks Plaskon what the future holds for the postal service, and why the USPS is facing a budget crisis in the first place.
