/m6392 ELM 932.11.g

Retail personnel, including postmasters and supervisors at CAG A–J post offices, whose official assignment at a retail counter is for a minimum of 4 hours daily for 5 days a week on a continuing basis, or for not less than 30 hours a week. Employees who do not qualify for a uniform allowance under the criteria described above must wear the appropriate uniform for the position if it is provided to them outside of the uniform allowance program.

how do we determine if a new PTF clerk gets an uniform allowance?

I work at a carrier station, processing mail. We have 14 clerks, all regulars. We also have approximately 9 PSEs.
Isn't there a percentage of PSE staffing for the number of regular clerks at a carrier station. If so, does anyone know what is the percentage?

/m6384 get in touch with a union rep. If you don't know one, check around with some of the larger offices to get you connected. And ask if they will look into maximization of your position. I would keep this effort between you and your steward, no need to share this with the other clerk or the PM. PM will find out soon enough via the union. From what you posted it sounded like you are the senior PTF in your office. Assuming the combination of the two PTF positions would qualify for a FT position. If so, you have a case.

/m6384 Call union about the hours. And the fact that a deal seems to have been made that'll hurt your hours.

You also need to contact EEO because that idiot has created a provable hostile work environment. You were threatened. He does not have the right to cuss you out, or to make you embarrassed. Or lie to you or demean or threaten you.

Right now start writing things down at home. What he said, date & time, and who might have been nearby to hear or witness it. It's not evidence, doesn't prove much, but will be invaluable later if this goes anywhere. Memories fade, or get jumbled up--it's human nature, but your notes will show what he is and win the case for you.

/m6384 where was your steward?

I'm a level 18 and we got another ptf clerk. I called another post office to find out if the other clerk had worked up there and my post master called me and cussed me and told me to never call that post office again and ask about another clerk I said ok. I had a customer at the time. I was so embarrassed in front of the customer.

Then 2 days later, he waits untill everyone is out of the office except me and the other clerk and brings him back to where i'm at and says we need to talk. He than says again, that I was to never call another po and ask about the other clerk and I said you allready told me that. I said I didn't want him to cuss me anymore on the phone and he said he did'nt but he did. Then, I said the reason I called was because I wanted to know why the other clerk was getting more hours than me and he said he wasn't and I said yes he was. Then the other clerk said I can't make it on 15 hours and I said neither can I. Then the postmaster said you wanna play that game do you? I said are you threating me? He said no and he walked off. Is this a threat or not?

/m6381 Those points are why I opposed ratification back then, and still hate that contact now.

Worse was the union playing dumb about NTFT retirements, hinting maybe OPM would see them as full-time when everyone knows it's always based on hours so that'd be pro-rated as PTR and PTF are.

from liteblue, eretire page:

Who Can Use eRetire?
eRetire is for full-time employees who are:
•Within five (5) years of retirement eligibility.
•Within 180 days (6 months) of retirement eligibility.
•Currently eligible for retirement (also known as Optional retirement).

Part-time (PT) and Non-traditional Full-time (NTFT) employees and Postal Inspectors require a manual annuity estimate and must contact the HR Shared Service Center (HRSSC) to request a manual estimate. A manual annuity estimate is mailed to the employee's address of record within 7-10 business days. Contact the HR Shared Service Center (HRSSC) at 1-877-477-3273, menu option 5 to request an annuity estimate.

/m6380 x-I have a friend who is a ntft, you do not get the same al/sl or annuity calculations working less than 40 hours. It is stated on the annuity page somewhere. I will find and post. It is deceiving to clerks to be called FT who work less than 40. Nifty flex's schedule changes like a ptf, yuk. Holiday pay, regular bidding rights are good, just wish every person who has the "FT" after their position was at 40 hrs.

/m6379 That info is out of date. ELM needs to follow APWU contract.

There should not be anymore PTR, and PTF should be rare; both replaced by NTFT. APWU says NTFT isn't a clerk category, but a FT bid type.

And as you said, it does all come down to what's available in the bid cluster. But from what's being posted, mgt and local unions are deciding if new jobs will be NTFT or FTR, so bidding choices will be limited or non-existent by them.

/m6373 ntft, you are considered a regular for bidding purposes. If a position within your cluster comes up for bid, you can choose to bid or stay in your current position.

However, with regards to being a full time employee, under the ELM, you are not considered full time.
