Recently our postmaster issued a Letter of Demand to a Window Clerk for a shortage of more then 900 dollars. Window Clerk admits to making a mistake while cashing a money order. I filed a grievance citing a procedural error in the Letter of Demand. The Postmaster did not sign or print his name on the Letter of Demand. Grievance denied at Step 1 for no stated reason. On to Step 2. Postmaster may decide to issue a new Letter of Demand in a more correct manner. I will grieve that too.
My question is how long does management have to issue a Letter of Demand? I was informally told 10 days from when management knew of the shortage but I cant find precisely where that language would be in any postal manual.
