CHARLESTON, W.Va. — The Vice President of Local 133 of the American Postal Workers Union said they are filing a national-level grievance against the United States Postal Service (USPS) due to them not holding a public meeting in a timely manner for discussions on the future operations of the Charleston Processing and Distribution Center.
Tim Holstein said per USPS guidelines, they should’ve already held a public meeting by now.
“By their policy and their rulebook that they’re playing with, there was already supposed to be a public meeting,” Holstein told MetroNews Tuesday.
According to Holstein, the USPS handbook mentions holding a public meeting within 45 days of notifying the distribution center in Charleston that they are under financial review. USPS conducted a study of the facility to consider a potential relocation of it’s operations out of state with Pittsburgh being a possible destination
