The U-S Postal Service says Butte postal workers will keep their jobs, despite the decision to stop delivering mail on Saturdays.
Yesterday the U-S Postal Service announced the change from delivering mail 6 days a week, to 5 days a week.
Packages will still be delivered to residential and business customers on Saturdays.
Butte postal workers may see changes in their schedules or job assignments.
The postal service doesn't anticipate any lay-offs because of the change.
Pete Nowacki is the United States Postal Service Spokesman for Montana. "Right now we don't know the total impact on any particular post office and any changes that we do make, we'll make in accordance with the labor contracts that we have with our employees."
The US Postal Service says they'll save about 2 billion dollars a year by moving to 5 delivery days.
