My T-7 teaches the window clerk trainees, and just had a class of 10 PSEs. One of the PSEs got appointed to a cushy job in a nice quiet suburban post office. We found out he got the job through eReassign. My coworkers and I are regulars in a hectic, rather dumpy city post office, and would LOVE to move to the 'burbs. But we didn't know about eReassign. Tonight I checked it out, and looked for open jobs in our district. I couldn't find any listed. So I'm assuming that the 10 PSE brand new window clerks grabbed all the available openings.
How does eReassign work? Do we just keep logging on and clicking on the button to find available openings in our district? Or are those openings posted someplace a little easier to navigate? It doesn't seem right that brand new PSEs can get the good jobs while we are stuck with crap.

/m6079 I'm sorry, what is a bid cluster? Also, she is listed as a mail processor and joined our dept. as a clerk (I think as a rehab).

/m6079 is that 40 mile away office connected to your office as a bid cluster?

article 12 and 37 explain seniority if it was a transfer. if it is a bid they are senior.

A new clerk joined our office from another facility located 40 miles away. Her seniority is over 30 years. As far as vacation bids does she start at the bottom, least senior?

PTF clerks are Part Time Flexibles.
"NTF" clerks are NTFT, Non Traditional Full Time clerks. They are regular full time clerks with a non traditional schedule that may be more or less than 5 days a week, and/or more or less than 40 hours per week.

Do anyone know the difference between PTF clerks and NTF clerks??

rachel /m6073 - rules for allocation of A/L are local.

It's all controlled by your local MOU, and maybe no one gets it. Your local would have to have mandatory weekly amounts, like 10% of clerks must be off every week. In that case, those already there would have the right to jump on the now-open 2-week period. Our vaca sign-up sheets had a closing date of March 1, so incoming guy would be totally out of the running because he wasn't there when it closed.

In many places, when you bid out, you take your approved vacation with you. So again, no one could pick that slot because it goes with the guy.

A clerk was awarded a job in our dept. the clerk who was leaving had a Christmas vacation 2 weeks on the vacation board. Does the incoming clerk have first dibs on the vacation board or is there a vacation board go around according to seniority? How does this work?

Seen a few excessing and know there is no time limit. Usually they post enough bids so everyone can get one, but the openings may be many miles away or in a different craft.

Clerks 'unencumbered' aren't PTFs and can't have their schedules changed daily. If memory serves, they can be moved once within the first 28 days, and then not again for 6 months. But double check that with union.

/m6070 what happens to the bids the senior employees bid out of?

they should be reposted and then you bid on them.

stewards should be contacting the nbas if local presidents do not help.

When a regular employee is at an excessing facility, and they get a letter stating they are now an unassigned regular..how long can they be unassigned without given a job? Postitions have been posted but senior employees are bidding those jobs, and the juniors are still unassigned. Stewards are not certain on the time frame.
