On August 7, 2020, the Postmaster General announced a plan to realign the organization to provide greater focus on the core aspects of our business and to give us a better chance for future success. As part of this organizational realignment, the decision has been made to transfer supervision of bargaining unit employees assigned to logistics components of dock operations, e.g., ramp clerks and general expeditors, from Mail Processing to Logistics. Effective January 16, all bargaining unit employees assigned to logistics components of dock operations will report to a designated Logistics management official. Bargaining unit employees assigned to logistics components of dock operations will be provided the names of their new supervisors at the conclusion of the attached stand-up talk. The purpose of this change is to streamline dock operations. It is anticipated that the change will result in more efficient movement of mail and packages to delivery units. Additionally, consideration at the facility/installation-level must be given to any past practice, regional arbitration award, or precedent-setting, lower-step grievance settlement which could affect the implementation of this change as intended. Consult local Human Resources and Labor Relations regarding facility/installation-specific issues, e.g., attendance control, disciplinary action, personnel action processing, etc. Consult local Mail Processing and Logistics regarding determination of facility/installationspecific staffing levels for both bargaining unit and nonbargaining employees. The below questions and answers are intended to provide general guidance concerning the above-referenced transfer of supervision. They are not intended to account for every scenario that might be encountered in connection with this change. Additionally, this guidance is not intended to alter the provisions of the National Agreement.

January 12, 2021

(Target audience: Bargaining Unit Employees Assigned to Logistics Components of Dock Operations, e.g., General Expeditors and Ramp Clerks) On August 7, 2020, the Postmaster General announced a plan to realign the organization to provide greater focus on the core aspects of our business and to give us a better chance for future success. As part of this organizational realignment, the decision has been made to transfer supervision of bargaining unit employees assigned to logistics components of dock operations, e.g., general expeditors and ramp clerks, from Mail Processing to Logistics. The purpose of this change is to streamline dock operations. It is anticipated that the change will result in more efficient movement of mail and packages to delivery units. Therefore, effective January 16, all bargaining unit employees assigned to logistics components of dock operations, e.g., general expeditors and ramp clerks, will report to a designated Logistics management official. Affected bargaining unit employees will be provided the names of their new supervisors at the conclusion of this stand-up talk. This change will not result in any impact to the current status of bargaining unit employees or any contractual provisions. Installations/bid clusters will remain the same; however, unique finance numbers have been created for each newly established Logistics operation. Affected bargaining unit employees will receive a PS Form 50, Notification of Personnel Action, in the mail, which will inform them of their new finance numbers. Additional administrative changes, for example, changes in pay locations, may also occur as a result of this change. Please contact your supervisor if you have any questions regarding this change
