USPS refutes layoff rumor

It’s not true!

The United States Postal Service says there’s a rumor going around that 40,000 employees will soon be laid off.

USPS reiterates this is just that — a rumor.

According to a press release, the story started in Shreveport, La.

3-day work week for DC area feds due to inauguration.

The story does quote a Postal Service spokesperson. Unfortunately, that spokesperson was in error. The Postal Service is not laying off employees. Efforts to match our workforce to a reduced workload are focused on voluntary early retirements.


USPS says voluntary retirement has been offered to a number of employees and 3,685 have accepted so far.
