Is The USPS Displacing EAS Employees During a Pandemic?

Christmas is right around the corner. It’s been a difficult year, now with the stress of the holidays, busy mailing season and still living with COVID-19. It hasn’t been a normal year; everyone understands this, except USPS Headquarters regarding its EAS employees.

By the time this issue of The Postal Supervisor magazine is published, some EAS employees in Levels-18 to -22 offices may have lost their positions and were forced to either move to another office or into a mail processing plant EAS position. It’s indisputable: These EAS employees now will face additional hardships with their families during a pandemic.

USPS leadership would argue and say it’s business, not personal. Oh, really? Then why wasn’t it a problem to roll out and update approximately 20 memorandums of understandings (MOUs) through Dec. 31? The MOUs were updated every 60 to 90 days since February. These MOUs principally benefit all the craft unions.

Oh great, send more misfits and rejects to the plants. How about sending them out the front door. Too much incompendent management is now in place. Private sector would fire them the first day.

Sometimes when you lay down with dogs, you get fleas. Dejoy knows we have too many and many of them are incompetent. We need carriers badly, come on and show us how to do it- if you’ll come to work.
