Excessing Information for USPS Mail Processing Centers in California
Article 12 of the Collective Bargaining Agreement requires the USPS to prepare impact statements when operational changes are expected to lead to the involuntary reassignment of APWU-represented employees. These reports must notify the union of the anticipated impact; the number of employees affected by craft; the locations to which employees will be reassigned; and, in the case of a new installation, the anticipated complement by tour and craft. Article 12 requires management to periodically update APWU regional coordinators of any changes to the information provided.
Information was obtained from Omar Gonzalez, APWU Western Region Coordinator. All the facilities listed below are located in California with the exception of Honolulu, HI.
