BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — North Dakota postal workers have planned a rally to oppose eliminating Saturday mail service.

Scott Boehm is president of the Bismarck National Association of Letter Carriers. He tells The Bismarck Tribune (http://bit.ly/Y650U5) that the rally will start at 1 p.m. Sunday at the downtown Bismarck Post Office. The public is invited to attend.

Boehm says cutting Saturday mail will delay bills and invoices and may force customers to use higher-cost services. He says those most affected will be small business owners, seniors and rural residents.

The Postal Service has said eliminating Saturday service is necessary to save money.
