VERP Acceptances

It seems the acceptance letters have all gone out and everyone has been approved. Numbers are still under the 2800 they hoped for. Does this mean a round of layoffs are to be expected soon?

New job postings

Communication has been minimal, so it's nice to have this site to rely on for answers. I see jobs are being posted. Is this to back fill those retiring? It doesn't make sense?? Or are people going to have to start bidding on there own jobs?
