Retiree health benefit account of course. Required by Congress in 2006.

Don't get to excited about the financial crisis being over. If gas went down 2 dollars that would be a savings of about $200 million. The borrowing limit of $15 BILLION has already been maxed out and the Retirement account is behind about $16 BILLION. $200 Million is really small potatoes in a business of this size.

The financial crisis has been helped because fuel prices are down. I once heard that for every penny gas goes up it cost the USPS a million dollars! Not sure if thT is true.

No EO incentive needed now that the P.O. supposed financial crisis is over, people will be distributed where needed.

Opie, 20 per hour would be a good place to start, especially in the high cost of living states. 15 per hour, might be a decent wage down south, but try living on that for an extended period of time in down state NY.

/m53737 Think you need to change that spring date for Brennan to MONDAY morning. That is her official start date. Not hardly spring.

/m53742 Damn few, but I'd like to see more clerks be able to switch. With new APWU contract, new hires won't ever get to current top steps, but as carriers they would. Plus, they're liable to be stuck in 30-hour NTFT jobs, or on nights for years; being a carrier fixes both those problems.

You suppose $20 pr hr would make a difference? And once they got used to that, would it take $25 to keep 'em from walking away. Just wondering?

/m53743 "Why don't they use young city carrier assistants? They are much more efficient and with little benefits".

Management wants to, but CCA'S are like a revolving door of here today gone tomorrow employees.

Left one CCA last night with about an hour and a half of walking left, all while delivering in the ice and snow. For fifteen bucks an hour, most walk away within days, or a few months if you're lucky. After last night, who can blame them?

I'm not sure how the system works. When a city carrier job become residual then the job can be withheld for excessed employee. But it doesn't mean all carrier jobs that vacanted by retired carriers will be (or allowed to be)withheld. You can see the number of city carrier residual jobs on the current withholding list, it's much more lower than the carrier retirement rate. It happended to my facility two years ago. Forty something clerks were excessd out. But we didn't see many city carrier residual jobs available. If you have worked as a clerk for many years and you're not young no more, you are not really capable to work as a carrier. A couple of my ex-coworkers just retired or resigned. Some of them claimed for light duties or family leave and took leave all the time. I don't believe this is what the post office wants. Why don't they use young city carrier assistants? They are much more efficient and with little benefits.

X-stew, no offense intended, but what would you guess the percentage of clerks could succeed (if necessary) changing to carrier craft? I know that they must be able to do the job and cannot be forced into it. Would the p.o. then just reduce CCA hours to give them to any clerk that switches to carrier? Dumb not to offer (local) carrier early out (no incentive would still have SOME takers) to open up some positions.

I don't see why early-outs with incentive will not be offerd. Estimated 15,000 of postal jobs are going to be abolished/excessed. Landing spots for excessed employees are far from enough. Can you imagine that a postal facility will keep so many unnecessary people and still has to pay them? Earlyouts may be already on the way. The national union is not supposed to release any information before it has been announced. That's why the announcement is always a surprise. If you're ready to retire, just wait for a couple months.
