The contract is avaiable to everyone, member or not, on the APWU web site. Member or not, it is still thier contract and they should read it.

If he don't belong to the Union he won't have one. With PSE filling full time jobs they better join the Union or their won't be one.

/m2506 I know asking questions on this message board is easier than reading YOUR contract, but you really should try to at least read Article 38, the Maintenance Craft Article.

The CBA Article 38.5.B.6 states: “Employees shall be notified in writing within 15 calendar days of entering the Maintenance Craft in an installation, that they have 30 days in which they may request to be placed on the appropriate promotion eligibility registers. The employees who apply will receive the results of their application(s) no later than one hundred fifty (150) days from the submission date of the application, provided the applications have been properly completed by the applicants.”

The CBA Article 38.5.D states: “Employees under the Revamped Maintenance Selection System shall be permitted to update by retaking the incraft RMSS process no earlier than 120 days from the generation of their last MSS rating. This is applicable to both eligible and ineligible ratings obtained under any current or previous MSS process. Upon such employee update request, the employer shall have thirty-seven (37) days to complete the process including notification of the result to the employee.”

we have new hires (converted pses) that want to take the 955 test. if they do not pass, how long do they have to wait to take it again? (they were told they do not have to take the assessment part first - when did that change?)

you are going to have to talk to your nba.

a 4852 is required to document the hours authorize for your office.

To Postalvet:Haven't seen a 4852, no union rep to ask for it. As far as I know 40 hours for my job and it was 20 hours for PSE. Today I was told I couldn't work more than an hour overtime they are borrowing a guy from another office, is that ok for them to cheat me out of overtime? Also I looked at the schedule and was scheduled for the last 2 Saturdays but was verbally told not to work my overtime day! Need someone to file or help me fill out forms !

In my facility we had 2 full time custodians, one retired and they hired a PSE for twenty hours a week. He quit, I was asked if I wanted help I said I was on the overtime list and preferred the overtime. I have been working 2 hours a day OT, but they won't let me work my N/S day Saturday because the PSE only worked 4 hours. Total time would have been 18 hours doing both jobs! Do I have a grievance ?this is the 10th day since this occurred! 2 Saturdays please help

/m2500 you would have to circulate cards to force an elections.

but it could not happen anyway as they already belong to the same union.

What is it going to take for the VMF to be joined with Maintenance. The drivers just use our dues to go to conventions

wait a minute, you are a MM (maintenance mechanic)and want OT as a custodian???

not permitted any more;

it says higher level work but it will also apply to lower level work.

beside, why would a company pay a mechanic to clean the floors?

would you go to an auto repair facility and ask them to fix your plumbing?
