PMG: State of the Postal Service – An All Employee Message

So assuming we are going forward with all these changes, we would begin with plant consolidations and closures sometime after the May 15 moratorium

  1. Let me be clear: there is clear decision on incentives at this
    point in time, and there will be further details on what the incentive
    offers will entail for the crafts affected.
    The incentive program is approved and will be offered, details will be posted
    on the new HR Web page, Workforce Connection.
    You can find it on the LiteBlue website, at “www-dot-liteblue-dot-gov.”
    The APWU and NALC have also been briefed on the above Early Retirement Incentives, which will begin with FERS

  2. “APWU & NPMHU members have done a great job of getting the word out to legislators about our concerns: Keep up the good work ,support S-1789”
    — Cliff Guffey, President

    Call Your Senators:
    (Capitol Switchboard)
    [Click here for direct #s]
    Tell them you Support
    S. 1789 as it is currently written

    GOOGLE……….U.S. SENATE………Choose your “SENATOR HOME” State. Look for the area in which to write and send your comment.
    I wrote ” I work for the U.S.P.S. and I do not oppose S1789 in it’s current form”. This bill offers three types of incentives not to be combined.
    1. 25,000 cash.
    2. 3 years added on to your FERS retirement
    3. 2 years added on to your CSRS retirement.

    * NOTE: Remember you can only choose one of the three.

    A potential Senate floor vote on which NAPUS will be focusing will be a motion to “waive a point of order” against the bill for violating a Senate budget rule. We expect that an anti-postal Senator will raise such a point of order against the bill. NAPUS will push for a waiver, because congressional budget rules are inherently unfair to the USPS and prejudicial to implementing postal relief.
    In the meantime, NAPUS will continue to work with Senate allies to pass S. 1789, and that the measure will garner the requisite votes for passage.

  3. Pat Donahue should run for president of the United States. He would make a good one. I like him. See you in four years.


  5. If you have a family and can’t take care of it, that’s your fault. No one has too give up their job because YOU want it. Make your own way and do your time like everone else and quit whining.

  6. I would not give out any incentive’s how about anyone who is able to retire with full benefits pays more for there health care, retirement and so on so it cost more to stay working then it does to retire. This way younger workers with families to raise can have a job. if you cant afford to retire that’s your fault for not preparing for it earlier. most of the people hanging on the ones who helped create this mess get out period.

  7. The PMG, by making all the decisions “with or without Congressional approval” is sparing all those running for Congress and the Presidency the embarrassment of having to make any decisions. They love it. The PMG will then receive a Double Golden Parachute afterwards when he leaves.

  8. He is just setting himself up to be President of the new (non-union – no benefits – everyone part-time) U S Postal Company after he runs the USPS into the sewer…………….

  9. These plants closing are going to happen no matter what is said or done. In Louisiana, they are closing New Orleans sending the work to Baton Rouge, the same as putting a tractor-trailer into a two-ton. Pressure busted the pipe. This pipe will burst wide open, guaranteed.

  10. He can poster all he wants but he still has to go thru congress. And that’s not going to be easy. congressmen and senators don’t want mail facilities closed in their districts, and this being an election year and the post office being a major employer in alot of the far flung states isn’t going to get away with closing facilities that employee lots of voters.

  11. FedEX Volume war up 12% last year UPS Volume was up too and The USPS is going to compete in this growing market how? by slowing down? We were affected by a consolidation that was not evan in our service area (Frederick Md to Baltimore) getting black friday ads in the middle of december some had been sitting out side in tractor trailers and had gotten moldy. There was a arical in the Local Paper about Veterans not getting their prescriptions several had to be Hospitalized One guy who was tracking his RX online said it sat in The Baltimore plant for 2 weeks

  12. “So how many will be cut from management and VIP’S in Washington?”

    What follows is a list of all management and exectutive positions that will be eliminated:

    As we heard from the Postmaster General in his video, if the Postal Service reduces the size of its network, it also will have to reduce the size of the workforce. In that regard, the Postal Service is continuing to work with the unions and management associations about possible incentives.

    Let me be clear: there is a decision on possible incentives at this point in time, and further details on what an incentive offer would entail, will be forthcoming this week and next.

    The incentive program is approved and will be offered, details will be posted on the new HR Web page, Workforce Connection, all FERS Clerk Craft Employees may receive additional information in the mail.

  14. The Unions could have pushed the VER, and buyouts, got PSE’s to pay the dues they want, now it is over, death has arrived !

    Dead meat
    Cliff no balls Goofey and Rolando the Cuban Clown, because of them;
    Keep your chin up, the key words, the knockout punch is easier to deliver when the chin is up, we are dead, dead, dead .
