Postal Service Terminates Another Consolidation Study

Tennessee AMP Study Terminated


The APWU has been notified that a proposed consolidation that would have resulted in a mail-processing shift approximately 90 miles across southwest Tennessee will not occur.

“After review, it has been determined that there are currently no significant opportunities to improve efficiency and/or service through consolidation of certain mail processing operations at the Jackson, TN Post Office into the Memphis, TN Processing and Distribution Center,” the Postal Service wrote to the APWU on July 27. [PDF] “Therefore, no significant changes will be made at this time.”

Thirty workers faced transfer or a reduction in hours under the Area Mail Processing study proposal, which was announced in December 2005.

Thirty-six consolidation-feasibility surveys have been terminated or placed on hold since April 2006.
