/m2516 If you are already in the maintenance craft and have already taken the test for a higher level position or positions, whether or not you received an elegible rating, you can request to retake the exam every 120 days. For example it you are a level 7 Maintenance Mechanic and have already taken the test for MPE but did not pass the entire process, you may request to update your MPE rating every 120 days. Once you submit the request, Management has 37 days to complete the process (i.e. test and interview as required) and post the results.

You can only update for a position that you already been through the process. For example, if you never appied for the ET registar, you cannot update for ET. The current exam, 955 I think, will give you a score for ET if you update for MPE, but won't count.

An important note, if you have a passing (eligble) rating on the old MSS system no matter how low your score, DO NOT RETAKE THE EXAM UNDER RMSS. Anybody with a MSS score, regardles of score, is higher on the PER than a RMSS score.

What's up with these questions that they are asking on the interviews in these days?!!! How do you start a machine is one of these questions, and no one knows how to answer this. I'm already a MPE here in Detroit, just trying to get an answer for someone that just passed the test.

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?)

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 !
