AREA OFFICES TO REDUCE STAFFING LEVELS

As the national economy continues to decline, the Postal Service must continue to rightsize its workforce. And among those efforts, as announced yesterday by Postmaster General Jack Potter, are planned reductions in authorized staffing levels for the nine area offices.

This follows a similar workforce reduction at headquarters and headquarters-related offices announced last fall.

With this action, some vacant area-office positions will be eliminated and other occupied positions will be affected. Employees occupying impacted positions will be notified and given information and guidance.

On Feb. 24, a series of job postings will be available to place qualified employees in vacant positions. Area employees interested in competing for these vacancies — whether or not they are affected — can create a profile now by going to http://ecareer.usps.gov on LiteBlue. Some additional positions will become vacant as a result of regular and voluntary retirements.

Additional information will be released as it becomes available. Details also will be posted on the Organization Change Management website beginning Feb. 2 and will be updated on an ongoing basis.
