/2450 PSE custodian conversions are by seniority in the district. See the following APWU news article from March 29. http://www.apwu.org/news/webart/2014/14-05...-pse-mou-140329.htm

after others have had a chance to become custodians and at least three vacancies still exist (because you said you are the third pse custodian in maintenance) then you might be made career. clerks have no bearing on maintenance.
read this;

after you are made career then you will be given all the rights of any other career maintenance person. including becoming a mpe.

I will try to be clear. I am proud member of the APWU. From what I am told on the workroom floor is that the APWU and management agreed to fill vacant positions (custodian) by seniority from the PSE workforce. I am a PSE custodian in a facility that has vacant positions available. So my question now is...I am the 3rd hired PSE in maintenance as a custodian. Other PSE's were hired as clerks before me. I have never seen a seniority list posted for PSE's. When the vacant positions are filled from the PSE...register?...will I be able to bid a custodian job. Thank you postal vet

/m2448 "allows me to fill a regular position,..." this statement does not state you are career.

are you career?

a PSE cannot become a MPE.

I am currently a PSE custodian. Since the agreement between the union and management allows me to fill a regular position, when can I expect to test to become an MPE?

When I was in Norman, we all put on our PPE jackets. Most were short jackets but a few guys had jackets all the way to their knees. We called these,"The Dress". One guy went to a local dry cleaner and paid to have his shortened. Good times at the TTC.

/m2437 The Management Instruction (MI) that governs EWP PPE specifically states that the USPS is responsible for cleaning the coveralls. I believe the words the MI uses are "the employee is responsible for the care of the PPE excluding cleaning." This should have been covered in your 2 hour power point OSHA mandated training on the new and improved EWP program. You should have been given two pairs of coverall so that your local building can clean one while you still have one to use. If you read the cleaning tag carefully you should have noticed that you CANNOT use fabric softener of any kind, liquid or dryer sheets. Fabric softener is VERY flammable.
