!ATTENTION!
from Lakeland District Representative-Julia Doggett

The mail count dispute letter meeting held at the district was conducted April 27th
between the union and management to attempt to resolve issues of dispute.
Some issues we were able to resolve, but not all.
Issues that management refused to resolve were not agreed to by us, nor to be ignored or not fought.
If management did not provide you credit for the items
you disputed they need to provide you with their decision, in writing.
If you still want that credit, within 14 days of receipt of their written decision, you can and should file a grievance.
Follow the grievance filing instructions-click here

Article 8.5.A of our Contract states: “The relief day work list at each delivery unit shall be established twice during each guarantee period.

The relief day work list will be posted for a two-week period. Each time the new relief day work list is established it shall supersede the previous list.

All regular carriers, regardless of route classification, desiring to work their relief days shall place their names on the relief day work list.

The first opportunity to sign the relief day work list will be three weeks prior to the beginning of the new guarantee period and will be effective at the beginning of the new guarantee period.

The second opportunity to sign the relief day work list will be three weeks prior to the beginning of the first full pay period in May and will be effective the first full pay period in May.”

Since the first full pay period in May this year begins on May 14, 2016, the relief day work list should be posted in each delivery unit beginning three weeks prior on April 23, 2016.

EMA TO GO DOWN

New EMA Rate - Effective April 2, 2016 (Pay Period 08-2016)

 

On March 16, 2016, the Bureau of Labor Statistics released the February 2016 Consumer Price Index for Urban Wage Earners and Clerical Workers (CPI-W)

which established the Private Transportation Index at 180.021, a decrease from the November 2015 Index which was 188.188.

The decrease in the Private Transportation Index was due almost entirely to a change in the component Motor Fuel category from 192.445 (November 2015)

to 155.723 (February 2016), a decrease of 36.722 (19.08%).

Based on this release, the Equipment Maintenance Allowance for rural carriers will decrease by 2.5 cents to 62.0 cents per mile.

This EMA rate will be effective April 2, 2016 (Pay Period 08-2016).
