EVERETT — Postal workers in Snohomish, Granite Falls and Marysville say they’ve been told their post offices will soon no longer serve as delivery hubs and will only offer retail services.

Mail distribution would be run out of Everett, according to a source within the U.S. Postal Service’s Seattle District Regional Post Office.

The postal worker, who wished to remain anonymous to avoid retaliation, told The Daily Herald, “all mail delivery for these cities would come from” Everett and that employees have been told this news, but not the public. The source provided a USPS identification to The Herald.

Kurt Eckrem, Washington president of the National Rural Letter Carriers Association, confirmed he had heard about the impending changes from carriers and others in the union.

“There’s a lot of rumors going around,” Eckrem said.
