Just found out Wausau is closing in April instead of January. Don't know why. Hopefully it's written in pencil because it's sure to change again.

Our plant manager just walked through and said he heard from SLC that all the closures were cancelled and the four walls cancelled too. NO early outs either. However, he's been denying that it would all happen since the very beginning. Has anyone else heard this news?

Wasaeu and Madison Wi to Milwaukee are the only moves in January. All other previous January closures have been delayed to later in the year.

To find the spreadsheet with consolidation dates click on: http://about.usps.com/news/service-alerts/welcome.htm then select: USPS Facilities Status then select: 2015 Network Consolidations You will need xcel or another spreadsheet program to open the file. I use open office, it's free and it works well; just google open office. I think 4.1.0 is the current version of the Open Office Suite.

it is going to be a zoo with cancelling mail at 6 am and the critical entry time of 8 AM.

We heard about this via the mail handler union president. Plant manager tells us nothing!
My understanding is that when the service standard changes are implemented (Jan 2015) our operation run times will change to correspond with SLC processing.
I guess we will find out soon.

We are hearing that the "four walls" program has a plan B. A facility slated for Phase II Shut down commencing 01/10/15 would remain open but only do SCF sorts on a reduced number of DBCS machines (some would be relocated, some scrapped). Here is the kicker: The District (the right hand) gave the APWU notice of excessing all ETs in an office commencing January 2015, they were then given different excessing information showing excessing of 1/3 of the ETs in Jan 2016 because they needed to keep ETs for plan B; however, headquarters (the left hand) apparently does not know anything about this as the spreadsheets avaliable at About.usps.com or at RIBBS show no changes. SNAFU or FUBAR ? I say SNAFU

OPTIMIZATION OPPORTUNITIES - Phase II Starting Jan 10, 2015

Savings within the “four walls”
of the facility

*Realignment of operating windows
 commensurate with earlier availability of
 committed volume

*Realignment of transportation

*Delivery opportunities through the earlier
 availability of mail volume

Don't know why it's called four walls. Seems to pertain to keeping smaller plants running like a DDU to keep larger plants from having fiascos e.g. Rochester MN closing.

Can anyone tell me about the "4 Walls" program they are rolling out? Have some plants started it already?

The inadequacy of our leaders is so evident in our business. By not offering buyouts it leaves so many overstaffed workers in clerk and mail handlers crafts. Yet we just keep moving on with our leaders wanting congressional help. We all know a buyout of these crafts would move 20-30k of employees minimum and the Post Office would be fine. But our leaders don't make a move . their closing 82 facilities in January and no word on any buyouts? Amazing absolutely amazing.

/m2985: As a mailhandler I must agree. You just described my work day with "all mailhandlers do is drive around on powered trucks all day". A forklift seat is very comfy.
