The NAPS resident officers met on Friday, August 28, 2009 with Douglas A. Tulino, USPS Vice President, Labor Relations at 11:00 a.m. to discuss the final day of the restructuring prior to the implementation of the RIF on the remaining impacted EAS employees.
Due to the diligence of the members of the NAPS executive board, who worked closely with local Areas and Districts and the cooperation of USPS headquarters, we are able to announce today that remaining impacted employees are expected to be placed in positions thereby avoiding a RIF.
We will continue to monitor the remaining impacted EAS employees to ensure that they have been placed. If any member is aware of a situation where an EAS employee remains unplaced, please have that individual contact their respective NAPS area vice president.
We owe a debt of gratitude to all of our NAPS officers in the field for their efforts in working through this restructuring so that we have the conclusion that we achieved today. We will continue to work with the Postal Service to resolve remaining issues that have been caused by the restructuring.
