The APWU was provided notice dated January 26, 2018 from the USPS of their proposal “to involuntarily reassign one hundred twenty six (126) Full Time Clerks and thirty eight (38) Full Time Maintenance employees…” The notice goes on to state that Mt. Hood P&DC would be consolidated into the Portland bid cluster. With the construction of the new building, we all have been aware that something like this was coming. The date of this event is “anticipated” to be effective on May 12, 2018. The notice does not state if movement of the Mt. Hood P&DC employees will happen on that date. The service could choose to consolidate and move employees on that date. The service may consolidate on that date and continue Mt. Hood as a Mail Processing operation as part of the Portland Installation and Bid Cluster. The postal service has refused to provide your Local union any information up to this point. We hope to have more information very soon. There is a lot of information needed, questions to be answered and meetings that need to happen prior to the consolidation, excessing and moving events.
We, again, have contacted the USPS to request a meeting to answer our questions. Our Local will be holding informational and Q&A meetings very soon. Watch this space, more shall be revealed.
