Postal Service to Issue Layoff Notices Later This Month
Some U.S. Postal Service employees will receive layoff notifications later this month, the mailing agency told workers in a memorandum this week.
The announcement comes as part of a restructuring plan put in place by Postmaster General Louis DeJoy, who is targeting non-union management and administrative staff for the so-called reductions in force, or RIFs. The Postal Service previously announced voluntary early retirement incentives for eligible members of that contingent of its workforce, noting it was part of a procedure to avoid layoffs. USPS will offer a second round of the incentive to employees before the RIFs take effect, again without any buyout component. Government Executive first reported in April that layoffs appeared likely.
Why not offer early retirement to all employees with over 20 years service??
I agree. They could hire 2 cca’s for what I get paid. They are talking about hiring 100,000 more employees over the next 10 years. Offer an early out to craft employees and hire 2 cca’s and early out an old timer. I think they are afraid to many of us would jump on that wagon.
