apwulogoFrom Frederic Jacobs, President of the American Postal Workers Union Local 78 in Oakland CA:

Attention Members:

I have been notified that on or about January 17, 2015, fifty-five (55) full-time clerks are going to be involuntarily reassigned (Excessed) from the craft and/or installation at the Oakland bid cluster. The notice also indicated that clerks were going to be involuntary reassigned from the following post offices: San Bernardino, Anaheim, San Ana, North Bay, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Honolulu, Fresno, Sacramento, and San Jose.

The impacted employees will be notified of their involuntary reassignment by letter.

According to the Postal Service, this action is being taken based on a “new 24 Hour Clock Operating Plan and improved efficiencies.”

Every effort will be made by the APWU to have the involuntary reassignments cancelled.

If you have any questions regarding this announcement, please contact me.

The struggle continues.

Fredric Jacobs
