In the video Postmaster General says,”Targeted incentives and VER will be offered. Information now being finalized.”
State of the Postal Service Postmaster General Pat Donahoe will have an update on network consolidation plans. And, he will recap plans for Post Offices in rural areas.
“As the PMG explained, with the May 15 moratorium now past, consolidation activities will start this summer. After a break from September through December for election and holiday mail seasons, this first phase will resume in January 2013. A second phase will then continue beginning in February of 2014 unless our circumstances change.
As a result, staffing adjustments will be necessary. Actions taken will comply with collective bargaining agreements, Postal Service regulations and policies, and other applicable law. At facilities where consolidation activity will move forward this summer, employees will receive additional notifications starting May 21.”
As we heard in the video, the Postal Service is working with its unions regarding an employee incentive offer and will announce details when final decisions are made.”
