The postal service is already directing postmasters to begin performing clerk work in offices that were downgraded to level 18’s during the previous contract. As you are aware, during the last contract, they could not perform bargaining unit work if the previous level of that office was a level 20 or higher. This restriction has ended with the new contract. Now postmasters will be performing 15 hours of bargaining unit work every week.
We continue to lose from the last contract and the new contract has offered very little relief. We will lose thousands of hours of clerk work and our PTFs will feel the effects in these offices.
WE must not reward officers who now hide under the new Members Unity Team. We must continue to hold them accountable.
The present Eastern Regional Coordinator supported these concessions. The ERC stated, “I am proud to have had the opportunity to have been involved in some of the negotiations sessions on what has to be seen as a historic agreement in these difficult times. I urge you to carefully review the terms of the tentative agreement and vote “yes” to ratify the contract. Thx. Mike”.
