Postal Service authorized to offer voluntary early retirement
The Postal Service has received approval from the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) to offer voluntary early retirement to employees in clerk, mail handler, supervisor of distribution operations and supervisor of customer services positions nationwide.
Automation and technological advances coupled with mail volume reductions has the Postal Service continuing to look for ways to voluntarily reduce its workforce while maintaining excellent customer service.
Details of the program are still being developed and will be announced later. No incentive package will be offered for employees who choose early retirement.
