  1. Union and NAME of Local/Branch

    I don’t think there is a specific time frame when a Letter of Demand must be issued, but as with discipline, the longer the time between mgmt knowing (or should have) and issuance, the better it is for the craft employee.
    BTW, once you filed the step 1, any other Letter of Demand would have to be for a separate debt, or it is Double Jeopardy. Do not agree to allow the postmaster to rescind and reissue. If it was procedurally defective, then it was procedurally defective and the issuing official will have to explain it to their superior. How hard was it to sign and date a document that will be issued in your name?
    The issue at this point is not the existence of the debt or the culpability of the craft employee, but the procedure required before taking money from that employee being followed; it is their rule, not ours and they should have to follow their rules as they demand we have to do “or else”.
