    I speak for myself only. I do the same work, harder actually, have a 4 hr six day a week split schedule and have been employed for 16 years 6 of which I have been a pse and the other 10 a pmr. I deserve whatever benefits and perks I earn. Some, and I mean, SOME ptf clerks have only been employed a short time and don’t forget about the nearly 5 dollar an hour pay difference.

    I’m curious. How is that PTFs who don’t get paid holidays and, under this contract, PSEs will be required to work holidays while a PSE who doesn’t work will have holidays off, work it to get in lieu of, and/or work it to get paid?

    Or how about PSEs being converted before PTFs?

    Just wondering.
