As a result of a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) negotiated with the APWU, the Reduction in Force (RIF) separation date for all remaining impacted POStPlan Postmasters in 2, 4 and 6 hour offices has been extended until February 6, 2015.
The effective date of RIF demotions and voluntary reassignments is now February 7, 2015. If you already sent in your acceptance form, you do not need to take further action at this time.
The MOU dated December 31, 2014, will allow impacted Postmasters whose offices have been re-evaluated to a 2 or 4 hour per day Remotely Managed Post Office (RMPO) with an opportunity to volunteer to become career PTF clerks.
A letter providing information about the new option for impacted Postmasters, including how to accept the assignment offer, your pay and work schedule if you accept the offer, will be provided to you in the coming days.
All separations, including optional retirement and RIF separations will be effective Friday, February 6, 2015. If you have submitted a retirement action effective January 9th, the Human Resources Shared Services Center (HRSSC) will reach out to you directly.
Questions should be directed to your District Human Resources Manager or Manager, Post Office Operations.
