I heard that too, not officially, but on another discussion board, that the PTF's from the APO's were going to be forced into the NTFT jobs at the RMPO's. But then depending on how many RMPO's the office has, they may be required to have a Lead Clerk, and nobody seems sure if that has to be a regular job or a PTF.

We had a telecom yesterday about all of this. One thing that I took from it was that they might force my PTF to the NTFT position at my RMPO. That would really suck if that is the case. If this is the case-I lose my PTF, and the PSE that was at the office gets bumped out just as I finally get everything settled.

Employees with retreat rights are those that were RIF'd out of their office and have the opportunity to go back. One example would a former level 11/13 PM who chose another position. They can retreat back to their old office to take the NTFT position. There are very few that fall into this category, and it is very unlikely that they would take the position since they would have simply stayed in their office anyway. There are none in my district.

Ok, so just who is an employee with retreat rights? Lingo I do not know.

Pecking order... vets, employees with retreat rights, PSEs by installation of seniority, PSEs in 50 mile radius, then PMRs and general public. WOOHOO! Go PMRs, said my sarcasm.

I'm not too sure but think if our APO's are happy with the status quo we have the best shot. Just sayin'.

Linda, I'm not really sure I understand your question. Are you asking how "likely" it would be for us keep our positions where we are now? I just got back from a "trial run" to the testing place so I could know about parking, etc... good thing too, cuz parking was almost non existent and I had a little bit of a trek to get where I wanted to be. Ran into my PMR friend on her way in to take the test.

Kathy - you have a lot of experience. After almost 8 years as a PMR, I am only getting 12 cents an hour more than starting PMRs were getting before this change. Have you heard anything about where current PMRs fit into the "pecking order" of hiring the new PSE for our 4 hour offices?

I have two PMR friends taking the test today... Sending lots of prayers and positive thoughts to them and everyone of us that is having to do this. I have 13 1/2 yrs. as PMR, three OIC tours and the last 2 1/2 yrs. solo in my 4 hour office....seems so strange that we are all facing this change. I will lose $ as PSE but praying that the upside of paid holidays, raises etc will offset it. Looks like we will have to wait a full yr for those benefits tho. Have a great day everyone and again...good luck and blessings to all those testing... :)

lol. At first I did think that:)..... but then realized we have 90 minutes to take the test and the personality part is 90 minutes long.....so It looks like we are done with that part.

FWD, I'm wondering if we have to repeat it too during the test...Seems sorts stupid since we've already done it online, but who knows? Think it might be a trick to see if we answer the same?? LOL

/m13227 I'm not looking forward to that part of the test.
 
The largest part of the test is the personality section. I wonder if the testing I did online before I could sign up for testing was the personality part of the 473.

The postal inspector visited my office today. I scored 100% :)

When I told my APO PM he said he did not expect I would get anything less :)
