In a case initiated by the USPS, the issue was, “whether the restriction on 204B usage as stated in the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU), Re: Clerk Craft Jobs, Section 2.D, is applicable to bargaining unit employees detailed to non-bargaining, non-supervisory positions.”
The parties agreed that “the restriction regarding 204B usage as stated in the MOU, Re: Clerk Craft Jobs, Section 2.D, does not apply to bargaining unit employees detailed to non-bargaining, non-supervisory positions, as the detailed positions do not supervise bargaining unit employees.”
The parties also agreed that Article 37.3.A.8 of the Collective Bargaining Agreement is still applicable. This provision puts limitations on bidding and provides circumstances that would result in the loss of a bid assignment while employees are in a 204b detail or a detail to any non-supervisory EAS position.
The parties further agreed, “any case held pending this national dispute will be resolved in accordance with this agreement and local fact circumstances. The parties agree that this settlement satisfies those local grievances directly related to the national dispute; however, the local parties may address any remaining contractual issues in accordance with the grievance/arbitration procedure at the local level.”
