Here is a General meeting dated September 26, 2013
Open Period:
3. A question was asked about how many PTR’S have been converted to Full Time Regulars. Ernie said none, so far.

GENERAL MEMBERSHIP MEETING OAKLAND DECEMBER 29, 2013
The following were discussed;
2. New Plant Manager in San Jose already has put in for converting PTR’s in San Jose. Working on overtime issues and correcting seniority list.
5. PTR update – Plant Manager has put in for conversion but Regional office can
still say no.
6. Any update on PTF’s that where converted to regulars going back to Oakland.
Yes there is a task force working on this issue.

Here is an article by ERNIE dated February 28, 2013 and the contract negotiation said, ALL PTF in 200 hour facilities were to be converted to regulars.
We have heard of nothing of any PTR converting just based on this letter.

***PTR Mail Handlers
Date: February 28,2013
There are a lot of questions being asked by PTR Mail Handlers as to what has changed for them in the new contract. The answer is that nothing has changed you are still a career employee with the Postal Service that will be included in all raises, COLA increases in the lifetime of this contract and continue to be protected by the No Layoff Clause. The conversion of PTF Mail Handlers is rightfully a concern of yours that has to be addressed. The union is requesting that all PTR Mail Handlers request in writing that they be converted to full time regular status. It is important that this gets submitted to management by certified mail before the conversion of PTF Mail Handlers takes place.
The union will file appropriate grievances in the event that you do not get converted at the same time or before the PTF Mail Handlers. Now there may be some PTR Mail Handlers who want to stay in the PTR category these individuals need not submit a letter.
There will be Branch meetings scheduled in your office soon that will be posted on the union bulletin board. If you have further questions I would encourage you to attend.
PTR Mail Handlers are very important to this Union and the Postal Service, we will fight for your rights and your right to become fulltime.
In Solidarity, Ernie Grijalva

Let see... no layoff is in force....start with eliminating casuals and MHA... Reorganize the work force by adjusting hours and days off.....first by reducing work hours for PTR.....then reduce hours for regulars, eliminate tour one....Oh yeah, how about implementing the pay to park discussed a few years back...What fun next year gonna be!

As we can see from the front page, USPS is looking for the 500 pound gorilla to implement the RIF.

Hey grijalva post 13534, Here's a website that describe the "PTR".
http://npmhu308.org/resources_public/uniontime_aug07.pdf

Key word is CAREER employees and non career employees. MHA is non career.

MEMORANDUM OF UNDERSTANDING BETWEEN THE UNITED STATES POSTAL SERVICE AND THE NATIONAL POSTAL MAIL HANDLERS UNION
Re: Mail Handler Assistant Employees
The Board sets forth the following general principles concerning Mail Handler Assistant Employees (MHAs):
1. General Principles
a. The MHA work force is comprised of noncareer, mail handler bargaining unit employees.
b. MHAs shall be hired for terms of 360 calendar days and will have a break in service of 5 days if reappointed.
c. Leave provisions for MHAs are included in Attachment A to this MOU.
d. For MHA percentage use allowances, see Article 7.1C.
e. The Postal Service will provide a report every four week re- porting period with information needed to monitor compliance with the provisions above, i.e., the total number of career bargaining unit employees and MHAs in the mail handler craft by installation.
f. The hourly rates for MHAs on the effective date of this Agreement shall be as follows:
Hourly Rate: Level 4 at $13.75 and Level 5 at $14.50
Adjustments to these hourly rates shall be in accordance with Article 9.7. Should it be necessary for recruitment or retention of MHAs, the Postal Service may pay higher hourly rates, with the concurrence of the Union.
g. When the Postal Service hires new mail handler full-time career employees, MHAs within the installation will be converted to full-time regular career status to fill such vacancies based on their relative standing in the installation, which is determined by their orig- inal MHA appointment date in that installation. A MHA who does not accept the career opportunity will not lose his/her relative stand- ing for future career opportunities.
