The United States Postal Service will be closing two postal processing centers in Connecticut by Labor Day.
The facilities in Wallingford and Stamford were scheduled to close next year but, because of recent financial trouble, the Postal Service decided to speed up the process.
Almost 1,200 jobs will be impacted because of the facilities closures.
Connecticut’s Congressional delegation is expressing outrage at the sudden decision and says they are committed to preventing further closures and ensuring that no delays in mail delivery occur because of the closings.
Postal facilities in Hartford and Springfield will handle Wallingford’s mail, while Westchester, New York will handle Stamford’s mail.
