Trump Freezes Federal Hiring & January’s Nominations Results

Federal Hiring Freeze

President Trump very quickly put a freeze on hiring of Federal Workers. We are unsure if this includes Postal Workers at this point. The following is a message from our own President, President Mark Dimondstein:

All, At this point in time we are examining  the new Trump Executive Order regarding a Federal hiring freeze and investigating whether it applies to the Postal Service. We are in discussions with our attorneys, our sister postal unions as well as postal management. When we have a clear answer we will get back to everyone. Thanks for your patience.
