USPS: Post Plan update – Staffing will change at some Remotely Managed Post Offices

USPS_HQ_DCThe type of employees who perform work in some Remotely Managed Post Offices (RMPOs) where hours have been adjusted through the Post Plan will change.

Post Offices that are open six hours a day will be staffed by career employees who will work six-hour schedules. The employees will replace part-time non-career employees who currently work at these Post Offices.

Post Offices that are open four hours a day will be staffed with non-career employees known as Postal Support Employees (PSEs), who will replace non-career postmaster relief employees.

The six-hour and four-hour Post Offices will not add positions or hours. Offices affected by the Post Plan will continue to be overseen by nearby Administrative Post Offices, which are full-time regular offices.

RMPOs are Post Offices that offer part-time window service hours, are staffed by a Postal Service employee at the direction of a postmaster, and report to an Administrative Post Office.

“It’s good news that this long-standing issue now has clarity going forward,” said CHRO Jeff Williamson. “The decision also gives us some flexibility in staffing across Administrative Post Office groups.”

The changes are the result of an arbitration decision announced this week.

    One major source of apprehension consolidation-impacted employees have is that when they voluntarily vacate their current position to go into one of these NTFTE jobs, who’s to say that in a year a function 4 won’t determine that that job isn’t needed anymore. Management has already proven that they can fabricate numbers, delay mail and hide mail to get the numbers to support anything they want to do; all this with nobody to enforce the law and policies that would prohibit these activities.
