  •  Annual Leave Carryover:  APWU career employees may carry over 520 hours of accumulated annual leave from leave year 2024 to leave year 2025.

  • Annual Leave Exchange:  APWU career employees will be allowed to sell a maximum of eighty (80) hours of annual leave prior to the beginning of leave year 2025 provided the following two (2) criteria are met:

    • The employee must be at the maximum leave carryover ceiling at the start of the leave
      year, and

    • The employee must have used fewer than 75 sick leave hours in leave year 2024.

USPS Pauses Network Plan Consolidations

    Postmaster General Dejoy has announced that the USPS is pausing some planned mail consolidations that are part of his 10-year Network Modernization plan.  This action comes in response to a letter signed by 26 Senators expressing concern that the Network Plan is deterioirating service to the American People.   Additionally, DeJoy also indicated that he would not move forward with any consolidation plants with first informing Congress.

     APWU Preisdent Mark Dimindstein commended the "union ranks, our community allies and many friends in Congress who have made and will continue to make their voices heard loud and clear."

     The APWU has requested a full, and accurate, list of consolidations that will be put on hold, as well as any potential impact on excessing of employees from one facility to another.
