Finally we get some info. I see it as a positive as it looks like a NFTY position with a pay raise for most of us. At first I though it was a pay cut but if you read the fine print , if you were a clerk before becoming a PM the pay would be commensurate as if we were clerks all the way through so I'm hearing about $27-$28/hour. Also, no PTF position which I see as a good thing. Any thought anybody?

PART TIME POSTMASTERS PAY CHANGES, CONVERSION OPTION
May 5th, 2016
The following information concerning changes in pay for part time Postmasters, and their option to convert to a clerk position, was received from Labor Relations at Postal Headquarters.

Effective October 01, 2016, saved hourly pay for Part-Time Postmasters will expire and hourly rates will be reduced to the current maximum hourly rate of $19.39. Part-Time Postmasters with a current salary of $19.39 per hour or below will retain their hourly rate. Part-Time Postmasters with conditional DUO salary protection will continue to receive salary protection.

Postmasters in Remotely Managed Post Offices (RMPO) will be offered the opportunity to convert to a full-time clerk duty assignment within the office. The assignment may be a Traditional or Non-Traditional Full-Time (NTFT) duty assignment and determined by the Postal Service.

Postmasters who elect to convert to a full-time clerk duty assignment and have performed prior service in an equivalent bargaining unit grade will have hourly salaries established by placing the employees in the step determined as if service had been continuous in the equivalent bargaining unit grade.

Postmasters who elect to convert to a full-time clerk duty assignment and have not performed prior service in an equivalent bargaining unit will have salaries established in accordance with the following two categories:
•If an employee’s enter on duty (EOD) date is prior to May 23, 2011(PS Schedule 2), the employee will be placed in PS 6, Step A with an hourly rate of $21.06. ◦http://blue.usps.gov/hr/pay-benefits/pay-p...aining-unit-pay.htm

•If an employee’s enter on duty (EOD) date is May 23, 2011 or after (PS Schedule 3), the employee will be placed in PS 6, Step FF with an hourly rate of $18.39. ◦http://blue.usps.gov/hr/pay-benefits/pay-p...aining-unit-pay.htm

Most likely a NTFT. PTF's are a dying breed. But think about it, there really isn't much difference as the NTFT can be anywhere from 30 plus hours. And you get your AL up front, that's about all. The pay scale would be the same between PTF and NTFT (only difference is holiday pay, which washes)

Did I understand correctly they would place at pay scale reflective of time? wouldn't that mean a raise?

Hi 6 HR- did you hear we would be offered a PTF as opposed to a NFTY? That is a gamechanger...a NFTY would be tolerable but a PTF? I can't see it being worth it...they are obviously trying to drive us out. I had heard a NFTY is what we will be offered. I guess we will find out soon. Best of luck to you!

And the crafts don't get to vote on managers pay, anyway, so those remarks are just an idle rant.

Clinton- I know this makes you happy in some perverse way, as if it's coming out of your pocket but I am a level 6 PM and we haven't had a raise in 5 years and infact are dropping to $19/hr in Sept. If other people's misfortune pleases you I pity you. I do wish you well my friend. Other postal workers doing well makes me happy for them as I feel we are all on the same sinking ship. My father used to say "Some people can't enjoy a meal unless somebody else is hungry" Must be you.

Paul - that sounds like the typical postmaster to me. Isn't it his job to watch you? If he bothers you that much call EAP and get advice from a professional. Maybe you will be told to take some mental health days so he can stare at someone else. Your sick leave is yours, as you have earned it. Don't let some manager, that most certainly has less sick days than you, tell you differently. I assume you are new to the Post Office if you are expecting a postmaster to take responsibility for his screw ups. All you can do is CYA, as this is the game played in most offices. Good luck.

Is there a place where I can vent/complain about my corrupt postmaster other than notifying union? He is creepy watches me (im male) . He only is nice to good looking customers talks over the clerk (me) at the window. Accuses me of screw ups which are his. He is previously under investigation at another office so they stuck him with me cause the other employee of his filed complaint.

All offices will be reviewed sometime in FY 17 using FY 16 data.

I thought the PMG had said in a speech that all offices would be reviewed in the Fall of 2016. Does anyone know anymore about this? The unions are not saying a word about it or maybe they don't know.

Little postal: I was told that we could either stay on as Postmasters OR convert to a PTF. I asked what the pros and cons were to staying on as Postmaster and having our pay reduced to $19 or less, and was told that there should be a formula chart coming out sometime in June or July that we can plug in our numbers (years in service, age, etc) to find out if the Postmaster position would be a beneficial stay or not. Of course, every Postmaster in this situation will have their own financial and personal reasons for staying or converting. It will be interesting to find out what's ACTUALLY in store for us level 6 PM's. I will have 21 yrs in June of this year but not old enough to retire just yet. :-(
