It is totally illegal to record anything that happens at work, your prove this and its immediate dismissal for the PM. Fed Law violation of Privacy Act.Keep a Journal of everydaywhat happens. If your steward go over theirs heads call DC.I have been fighting, since 2005 I got my SSD and Pension no damages my fault I hired wrong lawyer.I keep getting worse but they acknownedged my injury by giving me free meds, still have 15 class actions waiting.Good Luck

Unions stick to addressing contract violations because we're not trained in disability retirements, nor EEO, etc, and generally are petrified about giving out bad advice on those issues and getting sued. So for the FMLA and other local issues, call union hall, get hold of a steward since you may wait forever if you rely on mgt to help you. Maybe make an appt with an officer because they should be able to offer up a name of a lawyer they've dealt with in the past to go further. Or they may know a kind soul in HR who won't spout the mgt line, and give you some straight info. Or contact one the the firms you can find on the front page of these postal websites.

Disability retirement requires a medical condition that can be documented that stops you from working without restrictions or limitations. And don't be in such a hurry to quit. We all know PO can really be a sucky place to work especially in the beginning, but as they say, it does get better.

"funny" thing is, once I talk to a steward, I am sure there will be MANY grievances able to be filed. (PM is a snake) And, I would rather talk someplace other than our building as I know for a fact that he had the place wired for recording conversations. I have one paper that could be turned over to the DOL as he blatantly tried to interfere with a FMLA approval. Oh, but he is sure showing me now as he has cut my hours from 26 to 4 per week after 15 years in the same office. (He has been there 4 years) I figured the simplest solution was disability retirement as this is what is in front of me now. Enough of the negativity and games. My health and piece of mind is more important.

postalvet /m909 - I get the creative part, but the poster wasn't creative, told them he wanted to ask about retirement, and asked for help. There is no disagreement about talking to a steward about "any issue they want", but are you entitled to that on the clock? No. You, like so many others, fall into the fallacy of thinking that since you "never had a problem talking with a steward, about anything" that it should and must be the same for everybody else.

oh come on you can have steward time for anything you want you just need to get creative. I never had a problem talking with a steward, about anything. a steward should be consulted with any issue they want. it is the steward that can help in a lot of these kind of cases. sorry you all play by managements rules.

postalvet /m907 - sorry, I have had many disagreements with X-stew, but I am with him on this one. The poster wants to know about retirement; you don't get steward time for that.

/m906 incorrect, an employee may consult with a steward in order it ascertain whether or not a grievance exists. article 15 covers this and it is labor law 101. you were not a very radicle steward were you?

/m904 You're not filing a grievance so technically your boss doesn't have to get you a steward.

So it's the same advice as I gave in /m900, that is, you contact your local union office. Good luck.

any idea how to get to a APWU steward? Told my PM I wanted to talk to one, he said he has "left messages" but no one has returned his calls nor gotten in touch with me. I have emailed and left voice mails to 2 different reps listed on our local page of current VP and clerk rep (I am a PTF). I need to quickly look into disability retirement and can't get anyone to answer or help??? Where to now???

Yes which of you has seniority?, If you want to get paid for the whole time you have to use your time. Sounds like your PM should get some people from another office, I am assuming its alevel 15 office which can be run by the pm alone.

Sounds like PM is trying to force you back to work sooner by making you use up your sick leave quicker.

Get hold of APWU office that covers your work area because as you say, you're not full-time.

Who knows about limited duty/restricted hours???? I am at a very, very small office (2 PTF 1 working postmaster) 1 PTF is off on 6 months S/L after back surgery. I had back injury 1 month ago and my doc 1st had me on light duty - no lifting,twisting,bending, etc. -not happening @ our office so my PM sent me home to use S/L because he can't accommodate me. I came back after being off 2 weeks and doc has me to work no more than 4 hours per day/ 20 hours per week for the next month but has lifted the restriction on lifting part. PM is saying I MUST take the difference in S/L each week for the next 4 weeks to total what I would have been scheduled of 40 hrs/week. ?? Does this sound legit?? The clerk off with back surgery is using her S/L at the hours she chooses each week. And, I am a PART-TIMER and have been at THIS office for the last 15 years..... PM is not the sharpest tool in the shed if you know what I am saying...just a tool.
