Scranton, Lackawanna County-Several hundreds jobs in Lackawanna County are on the line, as the U.S. Postal Service moves forward with consolidation plans.

The Postal Facility in Scranton on Stafford Avenue is one of 82 across the country scheduled to be consolidated.

It'll merge with the center in Lehigh Valley sometime next year.

Postal Officials say they expect to save 750 million dollars a year by the nationwide move.

It'll help them deal with a financial loss of 26 billion over the last 3 years alone.
