I am interested to see what happens this fall and if the postal service proceeds with downgrades of soft level 18's along with the level 6 and 4's. It will displace many people. I am postmaster of a "soft" level 18. My understanding at this time is if my 18 is downgraded, there will be no opportunity to stay in my office as a clerk. I would have 60 days to find a new position or be RIFfed.

"Looks like we will lose our seniority as well as our PM status."

what do you want to happen? as you will be a craft employee!

Looks like we will lose our seniority as well as our PM status! That stinks. So if a Nifty from another area gets ousted, they can bump us out since our tenure starts to day of the conversion? Am I right on this, or am I confused?

/m5365 There are not many ways I would suggest going to a L18 office. Your scenario is one, I would say go for it. Even at the worse case. If the L18 is one of those artificially upgraded L18's it still buys you time, as Worker1 stated. I suppose if the location was one that was quit a drive then maybe it may not be cost effective (but you didn't mention that concern)
With what you shared, go for the 18.

Go for the 18! Two of my colleagues in offices that were reducing to 4 hours, took PM positions that they would never have applied for before, and they ended up much happier than they imagined.

I agree, take it.

I would take the Postmaster 18 you never know what the future holds. It will be an. Increase in pay you would get an offer for NIFTY again if that level 18 gets desolved. Who knows there maybe a 20 on your future.

I have the opportunity to accept a Level 18 postmaster position, which is a definite pay increase from my RMPO Postmaster rate. But is it silly to accept it considering Level 18 postmasters seem to be on the chopping block? Would it be smarter to just convert to the NTFT position? Any advice would be appreciated.

RMPO6-Under the new contract a ntft in an rmpo level 6 that gets downsized can opt to remain at the apo as a ptf.

/m5356 looks like you will be offered the ntft level 6 position under the terms of the Post Plan. If you choose not to be a ntft, you will receive rif no sooner than 6 months (180 days). postmaster.org/postplan. If you are an rmpo, under the brand new contract, if the level 6 gets downgraded in the future, you can stay at your apo and become a ptf.
