    Great point. If we are closing facilities why not use them for the call center operations. This is another example of business people who do not understand business.

  10. Lots of free space in Kansas City. Sorry I forgot we are going broke, so why not go out a buy or lease a new place. This is what I mean by poor management.

  12. Greensboro NC has 2 fully operational call centers recently vacated why not lease already available

  14. Let’s see 15 jobs added 120,000 lost………
    That’s a loss of 8000 jobs for each one gained.
    Keep up the good work APWU.

  16. The Troy call center is located in a USPS owned bldg. The construction contract mentioned is for creating cubicles within the bldg I believe. Personally, I don’t believe the call centers are real…..but then again, neither am I.

  20. Build new buildings and get some incentive from contractors, why not?

  22. Goofey comes thru again. Thank APWU for not wanting you all to go but having the foresight to provide for landing spots since you all aren’t going anywhere now that USPS has no dough and keeps losing dough. Your hopes for another VERA w/incentive just went down the toilet thanks to delays by Goofey and his group. You can give him thanks at the LA National Pin Trading Convention going on in LA this month. Lots of liquor this year at the hoedown! You’ll need it !

  24. Partial privatization of USPS is inevitable and the Unions will not stop it, the work environment coupled with inept management and those incentives and bonuses, no real accountability,Carriers will continue delivering Mail is part of Federal Emergency Management Act, the processing part will be privatized, anyone who thinks that EAS will continue to be paid as much as they get 60k , 80k, 100k, … and the salaries as we have them will continue, eat another magic mushroom!
    This USPS is not run professionally, it rather is “Run into the Ground”, from the PMG down.

  26. Why not have these jobs done from homes like other call centers.

  27. JJ on Fri, 10th Aug 2012 5:20 am
  28. The APWU is able to get 1000 good jobs in areas that likely have excesssing issues and people still complain. It is time that we support OUR Union and the people WE elected to fight for us. Look around people, not too many companies are adding new jobs that pay $55,000 plus per year. Great job President Guffey getting work that your predecessor could not get.

  30. WHAT ABOUT ALL THE HCR JOBS THAT WERE SUPPOSE TO RETURN BACK TO MVS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  31. Skye Shepard on Sun, 12th Aug 2012 9:18 am
  32. Chuck Smith, Richard Buckler and Danny Neal in the Indianapolis PVS (MVS) are working hard to dismantle the motor vehicle operations there. They are probably giving the country classes on how to NOT post jobs, etc.

  34. But I agree! Perfect example of our ‘management’ in the USPS! “Let’s build a new building instead of using one of thousands that we aready own and are maintaining.” Sounds like a perfectly sound and wonderful idea to me, especially in a failing USPS that supposedly has no money.

    Hmmmm. What’s wrong with this picture? And do these people REALLY thing that everyone is a stupid as they are?

  36. If you read the text it clearly states that both of these projects are renovation (demo and new construction) of EXISTING square footage. In the case of Los Angeles, it excess space at the LA P&DC.
