*** The RIF deadline was extended until Jan. 10, 2015.  This will allow Postmasters more time to find positions or to retire after the holidays, and to leave with a sense of pride and resolve if they chose to retire. NAPUS secured another VER with a $10,000 incentive, and another Local Area Consideration Posting giving Postmasters another preferential bidding opportunity.

*** The Postal Service is revamping Postmaster training. It will include a classroom, face-to-face, off-site venue. A key element of bringing people together is networking and building relationships, which develops and motivates people. Problems are solved best when we can solve them collectively - not individually. No one has the answer to every problem.

*** New postal vehicles are on the way. We need different kinds of vehicles for different parts of the country. Our fleet is too old to be cost effective. New ones are coming soon.

*** Telecoms are out of control. They must cease immediately to no more than one hour per day. "I will cancel the telecom contracts if it does not cease." (This from PMG Donahoe)

*** The USPS has resolved to provide insurance when Postmasters use their personal vehicles. The Postal Service investigated providing a blanket policy, but that was hindered by the variations in state laws. Coverage will be through eBuy. You will provide what you pay for coverage for your vehicle verses what the additional cost would be to purchase coverage for using your personal vehicle for work. The difference will be paid through eBuy. That does not mandate that you must use your personal vehicle, but means when you do need to use it, you will have insurance coverage if something happens to it.

*** NAPUS and League will start serious conversations about merging into one Postmaster Organization.
