When Complement Managers Make Contact, Union Calls Foul

05/01/2015 - (This article first appeared in the May-June 2015 issue of The American Postal Worker magazine.)

As this issue goes to press, there is no sign that management is stopping or postponing the Network Rationalization Plan and the quest to systemically dismantle the Postal Service.

Back in 2011and 2012, when AMPs (Area Mail Processing) changes were first implemented and Article 12 impacts were issued, management referred to the massive cutbacks as “consolidations.” Now that the impacts have been devastating to employees and service, they are called “Network Rationalization.” No term could be more fitting.

Everything from the bogus figures in the reports – that haven’t changed since they were first issued two to three (some four) years ago – is wrong. The numbers weren’t correct then, and couldn’t possibly be correct now. The misrepresented findings are clearly “rationalized.”
