DeJoy pushes onward with "some" Network Plan Changeses

    In a new letter to Senators, PMG Louis DeJoy has indicated that, despite the pause in implementation of operational changes, he plans to move forward with several Regional Distribution Center (RDC) and Sortation & Distribution Center (SDC) projects.  The SDCs, scheduled for September 2024 implementation.  These planned SDC changes include the Wilkes-Barre, PA SDC and the York, PA SDC.

     Additionally, DeJoy made it clear, to the Senators, that he is going to continue pushing forward with planned changed to transportation.

     In, what can only be described as a, "nyah nyah!" (sitcking his tounge out) at Congress move Dejoy now claims that any "pause" in Network Plan changes was his choice and was already part ofof his plan and has nothing to do with Congressional objections.  In this most recent letter, DeJoy claims that waiting until January 01, 2025 to implement these changes was part of his original plan and that it fits in with his already determined schedule.   Instead of being a flex, it comes off more as a Pee Wee Herman "I meant to do that!" moment.

USPS Pauses Network Plan Consolidationsns

    Postmaster General Dejoy has announced that the USPS is pausing some planned mail consolidations that are part of his 10-year Network Modernization plan.  This action comes in response to a letter signed by 26 Senators expressing concern that the Network Plan is deterioirating service to the American People.   Additionally, DeJoy also indicated that he would not move forward with any consolidation plants with first informing Congress.

     APWU Preisdent Mark Dimindstein commended the "union ranks, our community allies and many friends in Congress who have made and will continue to make their voices heard loud and clear."

        The APWU has requested a full, and accurate, list of consolidations that will be put on hold, as well as any potential impact on excessing of employees from one facility to another.r.
