Xactly, Xstew, and older clerks, mail handlers, etc, older human beings have some physical problem, back, knee, etc. Keep your doctor's paperwork close by to stop being forced into a carrier job you physically can't do.

/m2980 Not exactly, and clerks are still being pushed into carrier jobs per contract.

But if they're not physically qualified by infirmity or age, they can't be forced over. Ditto if they can't drive due to DUIs. Clerks gotta be able to do the carrier job before the transfer.

This is laughable but is there some kind of SOP on these "closures/consolidations?"


You realize, of course, that the USPS actually does have SOP to fit any situation. It's abbreviated FUBAR.

I agree with X-Stew. Ask questions at meetings. The Salt Lake facility will eventually absorb 3 maybe a 4th closing facilities mail. They started building a new building for the ASF last year. It's suppose to partially open next week. We have heard so many different things about this facility. And with it possibly opening next week we haven't heard a concrete on how it will all work. The gmf here runs flats.nthey will be moving to the new building. They will be mostly ran by mail handlers. Where as at the GMF clerks run it. We haven't found out if we'll have to run back and forth?

/m2968 First, read union boards, go to meetings, talk to stewards for best info. Nothing beats a Q&A at a meeting to bring everyone up to speed. Don't listen to co-workers or bosses since the info's going to change right up to when it happens. And even the union will have few rock-solid answers because people will bid/tranfer/retire and create changes.

If big facility has your craft there already, the people from one facility at a time will be reassigned [which order is up to locals]. They'll usually be detailed to jobs for 6 months, after which they'll get their current seniorities restored and be able to bid on vacancies as they come up. If the bldg is vacant, then all jobs should go up at once.

When I've seen a plant closed, they took everyone out as of a Friday, then brought in 5-10 PO guys with TT trucks to remove the equipment to a PO warehouse over the weekend.

/m2962 This is laughable but is there some kind of SOP on these "closures/consolidations?" My plant is on the list and no one seems to know what is going to happen. Three small facilities are going to go to one large facility. How does seniority factor in, as in, does it depend on which small plant they close first or do they do them as a group...does it go by plant seniority or postal (transfers) seniority...have the AMP studies been somewhat correct in the number of people that will stay at losing facility...etc...very confused.
