MOU on Filling Residual Vacancies

Most APWU members should be aware of the recent March 20 agreement between the APWU and USPS which creates the procedure for filling residual vacancies in the Clerk, Maintenance and Motor Vehicle Crafts. Hopefully, this will result in the conversion of Postal Support Employees to career status and the conversion of Part-Time Flexible Clerks to full-time in the Southern Oregon Area Local.

On May 1st, the 21 day eReassign postings for PTF clerks in the Portland District should be available on the eReassign website. In Medford, 11 residual vacant duty assignments should be posted.

Neither snow, nor rain, nor heat, nor gloom of night stays these Clerks from protesting the Postal Service’s sweetheart deal with Staples that is moving mail service into Staples stores. …
