USPS To Request VER Authorization For Additional Positions

In a letter to Ted Keating, President of the National Association of Postal Supervisors USPS wrote:

This is in response to your recent request for consideration to include all additional EAS field  positions as part of a Voluntary Early Retirement (VER) request to Office of Personnel  Management (OPM). As you are aware, we currently have received approval to offer a VER option to eligible Supervisors, Customer Service and Supervisor, Distribution Operations. No  additional approval has been provided at this time. As part of a broader strategic plan, we have  made a decision to request authorization for additional positions, including those that you are recommending. It is important to reiterate however that there is no approval from OPM regarding additional EAS positions at this time. I will notify you once we have additional information. see letter
