APWU: There Are No Discussions Underway with USPS For Early Outs

Early-Out Rumors

…. a fraudulent letter has been circulated among postal employees announcing that early retirement offers and “buyouts” will be made in 2008. No discussions are underway with postal management on early outs and/or incentives, and postal management has refuted the false information.

On several previous occasions, the Postal Service has made early-retirements offers in specific locations without engaging in the required negotiations with the union. Appropriate grievances and NLRB complaints are pending.
