SAN FRANCISCO – A new audit from the US Postal Service Office of Inspector General says the San Francisco Processing and Distribution Center is inefficient and overstaffed. The report, released Thursday, calls for the center to drastically reduce work hours for hundreds of employees to save millions of dollars.
Despite the report’s findings, the sign outside the center located on Evans Street says, “We Are Hiring.”
The OIG report recommends eliminating more than 486-thousand work hours by having 280 employees retire to save $21 million. But US Postal Service Management is questioning the math and is not alone.
