Subject: Article 23 Request for Badge form – Retired and Full time officers without a badge
All, please see the attached document. This is the form to be used by retired and full-time union officers who do not already have a postal ID badge to get a badge. This form is to be completed by the local president and then sent to the respective Regional Coordinator. The Regional Coordinator will sign it as complete and the Regional Coordinator will email it to the District Manager of Labor Relations. The DM of Labor Relations will then sign the form and instruct the badge office to issue a badge.
1. Complete form
a. Enter facilities you need access to. You may attach additional sheets if needs be.
2. Send to regional coordinator.
3. Regional Coordinator verifies/signs
4. Regional Coordinator’s office sends to the District Manager of Labor Relations
Only forms sent to the District Manager of Labor Relations from the Regional Coordinator’s office will be accepted.
Getting an ID badge does not negate the normal Article 23 procedures. Notification must still be given that an officer is going to enter an office consistent with Article 23. Always remember — “notification” is not “asking for permission” but letting them know you are entering a facility.
This may be shared.
