Membership Meetings 2021
Social distancing and masks are required until further notice. Drinks provided.
Meeting @ 7:30
As you should know, the National Contract was ratified on March 8,2021. We received our first pay increase on PP 8, this is where we should be. As for the "back pay", I have no idea when we will see this. If your enter on duty date or seniority date is prior April 9, 2021, you should be receiving back pay. How much will I receive?? Depends on your pay scale and how much overtime, night and penalty time, therefore no one will receive the exact same amount.
CCAs who had 24 months of relative standing became PTFs on May 8, 2021. Future CCAs who reach 24 months, will also be converted to career status as a PTF. There are several bits of important information as being a PTF; health insurance, life insurance, TSP, scheduling. You should receive a bound book from the postal service explaining most of what you need to know, also ask to see your steward.
Regulars and CCAs; starting with the July 4th holiday, you can work your paid "holiday" and not get paid for the actual holiday, but instead get 8 hours of annual leave (depending on your earning status). On the 3971 it is the second box "Holiday/AL Lv Exch". Make sure you turn the 3971 prior to the holiday, supervisors will be totally confused, ask to see your steward. Reminder*** verify your clock rings thru "lite blue" virtual timecard, as soon as you ET, this program is updated.
The health and well being of each and every employee should be within everyone's mind. If you are sick, STAY HOME. If you are not sick, come to work and be safe, careful, and clean-up after yourself. Seatbelts when your vehicle is in motion!!!
Weingarten Rights, letter carriers have the right to Union representation in investigatory interviews conducted by Managers, Postal Inspectors, or USPS (OIG) Agents. Weingarten gives each employee the right to representation during any "investigatory interview which he or she reasonably believes may lead to discipline.
Social Distancing is required within the Postal Service.
Seatbelts are required when your vehicle is in motion.
Be Smart - Be Safe

Received an investigation, then a letter shortly after? This is usually discipline - NOTIFY your steward immediately!!
