The U.S. Postal Service will make early retirement offers to 26,000 mail handlers and postal clerks this week, in an effort to reduce the workforce due to declining mail volume.
The U.S. Postal will offer buyouts and early retirements to more than 45,000 mail handlers, USPS announced Friday. Employees opting for the early-out will receive a $15,000 incentive payment — half to be paid in December, and the other half to be paid in December 2013. The new buyout offers are the result of “in depth discussions” between USPS and the National Postal Mail Handlers Union and an agreement that was inked Tuesday.
