NAPUS, USPS and Be The Match

If you have not signed up to be a marrow donor and are interested, the Postal Service will cover the 100.00 cost to join the registry.

Be sure to use the promo code "USPS" when registering and it will let you bypass the payment screen. The Postal Service will continue to cover the cost of joining the registry for all employees who are between the ages of 18 and 60.

From Megan Brennan



Brennan acknowledged it has been a challenging few years for Postmasters regarding POStPlan. “We had to make adjustments based on customer use,” she said. “But, we’re a responsible employer.” She pointed out that, working with NAPUS and the League, the agency limited the impact to Postmasters with early-outs, saved salary and more. The Postal Service is at the point where it planned to use FY16 data to evaluate offices. “We will run the data,” she announced, “but will apply the evaluations to vacant offices only. Also, we will equalize pay for Postmasters in part-time post offices.” She said part-time Postmasters in remotely managed post offices (RMPOs) have a difficult decision to make. She urged anyone who needs more information to contact their HR managers. “We’re committed to ensuring that part-time Postmasters in RMPOs have the information they need to make a decision that’s best for them,” she said.

NOVA District Training Session


There will be an off the clock training session Sunday April 3, 2016 in the Culpeper Post Office conference room, located at 205 S Main St, Culpeper, VA 22701 from 9:30am to 3:00pm.

We try to make these training sessions short and to the point with MPO’s and/or District Managers in attendance for a short Q & A and then a topic of training. These training sessions are provided as a cost effective means of training and to focus on the issues we are having in our daily performance of our jobs. We all learn something new and the fellowship provides essential contacts for future references.

This training will help those in attendance to see where they stand based on their office information. The final implementation date for the initial phase of POSTPLAN is September 30, 2016. It will not only affect the future of Level 18 Post Offices but higher level Post Offices that will assume the addition responsibilities and level 6 and 4 that may be reduced. Do you know where your office or RMPOs stand?
