/m4853 They don't usually announce this until after the people are actually gone. In this case, after Sept. 30.

Im still trying to decide if better off to take incentive Sept 30th or get RIF'd on Jan. 9th, Not ready to retire yet though I qualify. I think if I stick it out they might possible announce another extension.

Doom & Gloom, message 4851: The PostPlan process is set up to employ PMRs in Level 2 & 4 offices. PMRs are not bargaining unit employees. They have no recourse if we use PSE's. It is not financially responsible to use the more expensive PSE's when there's a PMR to work. But there are no prohibitions against it.

Can a PSE818 work in a 2 or 4 hours office in the absence of the PMR? I was under the impression that only PMRs can work the 2 and 4 hour offices.

I can believe it, duh. Some of the level 13 postmasters have only been in the small offices and it is intimidating to think about becoming a supervisor in an office with more employees and "issues". Yes, if they want jobs, they will have to step out of their element. Some may be hanging on to hope that the "perfect" job will appear. I wish them luck.
I know what job I would have liked but it would have been a detail and not a job. They only train the new employees for a week and the window training is just being done by current employees (not certified trainers) in the offices and in a week, the trainee won't see all transactions such as registered, COD or even an oversized package. They were also being trained on eMoves and e1412 in the normal work hours in these offices. Another week of training on these things in classroom would make much better employees. We've had issues with people who have been doing things the wrong way and training new employees the wrong way. Training should be centralized. My two cents. Yes, it costs more but it would help to have more qualified employees and less frustrated customers.

Believe it or not, locally we had a level 17 Supervisor position in a Rural only level 20 office that did not receive one bid.

I know of at least two PMs that will be out of work in January.

Thanks,I feel the figures come out about even, but wouldn't be working during that period. I'm just not ready to give up my job which I love doing.

Tom1: consider everything before you decide. If you are eligible for a rif retirement in Jan. The vsip of $10k might not be your best option. Run all the numbers. Oct 1 to jan 9 you will lose your full salary to be replaced with your annuity/tsp/SSS if applicable. You will also lose 3 months of investing in your tsp if applicable. You will also lose the cheaper health insurance payments if applicable for three months as in retirement you'll pay more out of your pocket for it. Do all the Math or seek guidance from a federal retirement specialist outside of the Po...do not rely on shared services.....they are not there to help you make the best choice for your own personal circumstances.
