VOLUNTARY EARLY OUT RETIREMENT (VERA) OPPORTUNITY ANNOUNCED!
On January 4, 2018, USPS annouced an opportunity for some bargaining unit employees to take an early retirement. This announcement was made without any negotiation with the APWU, so the limits placed on which employees are eligible was solely the decision of postal management.
We have been informed locally that offers to eligible employees will be mailed to the employee's address of record beginning the week of January 9, 2018.
Members are encouraged to visit APWU's national website for further details regarding this VERA opportunity.
