/m2707 Usually /m2708 advice would be perfect.

However, if you are being told to do payroll but you don't have your own password, are using your bosses password, then what you're doing is illegal, and you should refuse to do it. Call OIG immediately if you don't have your own password.

If you're being told to do other work not on your bid, mess it up, and shrug when you get complaints. And file for higher level pay.

/m2707 always do what you are told and then ask to speak with the union steward and file a grievance.

Is it in our contract, (I am a Window/Distribution Clerk) that we are to do whatever duties we may be assigned? For instance can the Postmaster have us do things they usually do, like doing payroll, carrier reports, etc. ?

With a ‘Golden Parachute’ in Hand, Donahoe Opposes Retirement for Young Workers
 January 26, 2015 APWU, Donahoe retires, PMG, postal 34 Comments
From the American Postal Workers Union:

01/26/2015 – When Postmaster General Patrick Donahoe retires at the end of the week, he’ll get a retirement package of more than $4 million.

Not bad for a “civil servant.”

patBut in his controversial farewell address to reporters at the National Press Club on Jan. 6, Donahoe made clear that he doesn’t think the union’s newest members deserve any postal retirement at all.

“In today’s world, does it really make sense to offer the promise of a government pension to a 22-year-old who is just entering the workforce?” he asked.

And apparently Donahoe’s views have nothing to do with the Postal Service’s manufactured “financial crisis.” He opposes government pensions on principle and wants to impose his view to the entire federal government.

“I would encourage Congress to view the Postal Service as a test bed or laboratory of change that might be applied to the rest of the federal government,” he said.

“I’d like to see the Congress encourage much more experimentation at the federal level,” Donahoe added. “The Postal Service has the kind of management that would appreciate being at the front edge of change and would make good use of opportunities.”

APWU President Mark Dimondstein denounced Donahoe’s parting shot at young workers. “Donahoe’s remarks are the height of hypocrisy,” the union president said. “Every worker should be able to look forward to a stable, secure retirement.”

According to a financial report filed by USPS December, as of Sept. 30, 2014, Donahoe’s defined-benefit pension plan totaled $4,080,932.

Was originally a regular rural carrier. Made a clerk in a perm rehab position in 92. Part of what I'm experiencing is leftovers from the nrp, also new supervisor + eeo retaliation.

Then you should be fine. Except for every few years, a new boss will come in and try to squeeze some 'productivity' out of you. I'd keep a copy of your restrictions at work in case they need reminding.

And "never had a bid' meant you went from PTF to IOD-rehab?

Don't know the title of your bid job, but if it has nothing to do with financial, the union should be able to get you out of mPOS.

In case they fail though, you need a viable back-up plan. I strongly recommend you file for a permanently restricted job, or a disability retirement.

Declaring you 'won't' do mPOS, or only have a 'sedentary' job, are things not up to you or your Dr. PO Dr will decide. Questions like like are you in a wheelchair, or come to work in an ambulance, or can you drive more than 15 minutes, have come up in such cases in my past. If I were you, I'd contact one of the lawyers on the front page of this or other PO websites. Won't hurt, may save your job.

I've never been trained. Physically it's against my restrictions. I can only do sedentary work. Thank you.

Why do you think you're not window qualified? Did you never take window training?

See if you can find SSA job description or lobby director instructions.

Mgmt says there is no repetitive motion & I don't even have to pick it up to use it. That's ridiculous. I wrote up a description but am sure owcp will reject anything not official.

I've refused to do mPOS.I have no doubt it will make me worse. Do you know of anything that describes the physical demands? I need it for my dr for his narrative. I asked my local president but so far haven't gotten anything.

Open and shut if you're qualified; it'll be in your file or not so let union handle that part.

Do not violate your restriction even once since then they'll insist that you can do it daily. If mPOS work causes you pain or discomfort, get updated medical note into your file.

X-stew. I'm a clerk but not window trained. I'm IOD They are trying to force MPOS on me but it is not in my restrictions. I need something official showing the physical requirements. The union is grieving based on not being window trained. Mgmt is now lying ( what a surprise ) saying I am.
