NAPS has received a letter from Bruce Nicholson, director, USPS Labor Relations Policies and Programs, regarding implementation of new EAS staffing criteria in Logistics. The implementation will result in impending RIFs in the Logistics group.
NAPS has received concerns from the field that RIF avoidance procedures are being implemented without NAPS’ participation in accordance with 39 U.S. Code § 1004(b). NAPS has reached out to USPS Headquarters regarding this violation of law and will address the response separately.
NAPS will be monitoring the RIF timeline to ensure EAS employees are getting every opportunity to be placed before the RIF date of Sept. 9, 2023.
