Step 7 and Section B.2 of the MOU, Re: Residual Vacancies – Clerk Craft, for residual vacancies and PTF vacancies will now be available on eReassign, effective February 1, 2022. Once implemented, PTFs and PSEs will have access to the canvassing process in eReassign. The APWU and Postal Service jointly shared the news of this improvement on January 27, 2022 by sending out separate notifications to their respective representatives.
The canvasses will open on the 1st and 15th of each month and will remain open for 10 days. Employees are to use their EIN and password to login to eReassign.usps.com and search the My 50-Mile Canvass section. If offices are posted within a 50-mile radius of an employee’s current office, they will be allowed to apply for that specific canvass. At that point, the PTF and/or PSE will be able to apply and then be required to follow the remaining steps in eReassign to complete the process.
It should be noted that this canvass process is based on the current 2018-2021 Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA) and the provisions of the aforementioned MOU, which is on Pages 374-378. If the tentative CBA is approved by the membership, the negotiated changes to this MOU will then be implemented.
