Postal Service Floats Big Cuts to Employee Pay, Leave and Benefits
New postal workers would no longer earn a pension
7.02.2019 - GovExec reports: "USPS included a hike to the employee contribution level for pensions in a first draft of a 10-year business plan presented to lawmakers and stakeholders, according to multiple people who were briefed on it, as well as phasing out pensions altogether for new hires in favor of a defined-contribution system only. The Postal Service is looking to cut the amount of paid time off employees receive by merging annual and sick leave and pitched a popular proposal with demonstrated bipartisan backing to require all postal retirees to enroll in Medicare as their primary insurance provider." - Comments (Count)
Mail Processing Overtime Audit Finds USPS Way Over Plan
6.22.2019 - The USPS OIG reports: "Specifically, the Postal Service planned for about 18.5 million overtime workhours and 767,000 penalty overtime workhours for FY 2018. The actual overtime workhours used were 26.7 million (44 percent over plan) and the actual penalty overtime workhours used were 1.7 million (126 percent over plan). This occurred, in part, due to implementation of the F1 Scheduler at the beginning of FY 2018." - 5 billion less pieces, 5,000 less employees, overtime costs up $257 million! - GovExec: After dramatic workforce reductions, Postal Service sees spike in overtime hours - Comments (Count)
