PMG to Meet With Management Associations Presidents Tomorrow

From the National Association of Postmasters of the US:

Presidents of NAPUS, The League of Postmasters, and NAPS are scheduled to meet with the Postmaster General on Wednesday, July 27, 2011. NAPUS President Bob Rapoza said that he will ask for time to discuss the impact on Postmasters whose offices were recently identified to be included as part of a discontinuance feasibility study.

A review list for the possible discontinuance of approximately 2800 post offices has raised the anxiety level of impacted Postmasters, who are concerned over what options may be available to them if they receive a Reduction In Force (RIF) notice. As stated on the NAPUS website on Friday, there is no certainty that all of the offices on the list will be closed. Additionally, the process could take as long as 7-10 months before a final decision would be made to close an office.

Impacted Postmasters are encouraged to check the NAPUS website for updates on discussions with USPS leaders about available options if a RIF notice is received.

Additional information will be provided as soon as it becomes available.

    How about the clerks .

  • Tony

    Why in the heck dont we have a Vera for Postmasters to let the ones who have 36 yrs get out?

  • Constance

    You do not have to have a VERA to get out if you have 36 years of service and you are age 55 if CSRS or the minimum retirement age under FERS; you can retire on regular retirement.

  • Navy Veteran

    Iam only 53 yrs old….I would go if a vera without money was offered…

  • Tony

    No Tony has 30 yrs of Postal Service…4 yr 6mths on a submarine and 1 yr of sick leave….

  • Informed American

    I’m with Tony, I’ve given 36 years of service, some damned hard to this organization; & I can leave, but why go when District people got a bonus of $20,000.00 to go.
    We in the “field” are worth the same as they or more. Give me my $20,000.00 & I’ll go. (unless going means Mr. D, will close this PO, then I’ll just stay for 20 more years.)lol

    Who’s trying to get you to leave? They offered incentives to people they no longer need so they could get rid of them quickly. Are you saying you’re no longer needed? I’m guessing you’re a postmaster based on your comment about “Mr D” closing your office if you go. In that case, the only way you should be offered an incentive is if the USPS needs to close your office. If your office is still needed, why would the USPS offer you an incentive to leave a job that still needs to be done?
