/m5974 there is no such thing as "stress leave process..."

if you claim stress the only way to return to work is getting a mental health review.

what you might be looking for is anxiety or some kind of adjustment disorder (ask a doctor) the leave is FMLA and you should be able to get up to 12 weeks.

How does the stress leave process work? I have been hearing the pros and cons of applying. Anybody know for sure?

The banter is good, it helps all of us. That's what it is all about. Us working together against mgt that is trying to eliminate our job protections and divide us. I should have mentioned the LMOU earlier, try to get that language into your LMOU.

/m5971 Xclerk, yes that is a national MOU. LMOU is a local agreement that only applies to an individual installation (or installations if negotiated together.)

The mou I have is from a national grievance filed on behalf of all clerks that lost their jobs due to post plan optimizations. Postal service tried to replace clerks in small offices with postmasters Union won a huge grievance in arbitration decision was reached on. Sept 22 2014 i It was posted on the postal reporter

/m5969 Good for you. You have a strong LMOU and that's great. That doesn't do the rest of us any good. Your LMOU doesn't protect anyone outside of your installation.

Mgt. is suppose to notify an employee seven days prior to any change of schedule, that's in our LMOU and I applied that to PSE's because there is no language excluding them from it.

/m5967 You are 100% correct that a PSE is guaranteed 2 hours of work or pay every time they show up for work when scheduled, but that is not what you originally said. You said once a PSE's schedule is posted it is official and that is not true. Management can change a PSE's schedule at any time but they have to inform the PSE of the change.

I never said, nor would I ever say that PSE's are excluded from a class action grievance. 8.2 A & B, does not say anything about management changing a posted schedule.

Re: 5959 Union Dude. With all due respect, I got a PSE paid 2 hours show up time because mgt. posted a schedule giving him one starting time and when he showed up the supervisor told him it was changed at the last minute and he needed to go home and come back for the next tour. Show up time for PSE's is in the contract. PSE's are scheduled according to 8.2 A & B AND are allowed access to the grievance process. Where does it say they are excluded from a class action grievance? Mgt. tries to rule over everybody like they are Lords of the Realm, they are not.

Should hear in under a month, but it sounds as if mgt is waiting for something to happen that'll make your issue moot. No excuse for no mgt involvement to date except arrogance and rudeness. Ask union what's the hangup, and if they shrug, I'd get hold of NBA asap, and ask why you're paying dues if mgt can ignore the contract like that.

If you're getting more hours as a carrier, union may not be worrying about your situation, maybe seeing you as being better off for now than other excessed clerks. You don't have to retreat back to clerk if you like and can see yourself being a carrier. Not recommending it, but it's your option.

Office went thru DUO . Grievance filed by Union on my behalf , Postal Service never showed for step 1 or 2. Grievance has now been sent to dispute resolution but I am wondering how long before it comes up to be discussed. Arm I looking at months?

OK so it's you and only you. How did a clerk vacancy happen? And why did mgt deny your retreat right? And what did union say?

The office I was excessed out of was small.The office became a RMPO office.I was the only clerk. Due to the post plan arbitration the new position in the office is a NTFT which goes to a clerk.

You don't retreat back to your old bldg, just to your installation/bidding area. Assuming there's a vacancy, it should be quick, under 2-3 months. They usually don't do it one-on-one, as in, one vacancy, one call back. They usually wait till there are several jobs to retreat to.

Mgt will contact you, give you a list of vacant jobs and you'll compete along with the other clerks sent out, also assuming there are no FTR being excessed in, and that Art 12 with-holding isn't in effect.

Help needed from anyone
I am an excessed ptf clerk involuntarily reassigned as a carrier because of DUO. Arbitration award of sept 22 gives me recall rights to NTFT position in my former office. Postal service is not allowing me to retreat. Grievance was filed and is now at ADRP. Do I need to do anything else? How long will this take? Thanks
