I've no star by my name and I don't have any badges either, but I am a man who will be on the winning end of this class action suit. Because I have the paper trail ( a letter from the PO telling me they are going to find me a job in the private sector after 26 years as letter carrier, the last 9 years using a mail cart) and the work record. I'm gonna retire from this site for this second time and last time. I wish everyone the best. I say for the last time thank you Sandy for everything you have done, and are going to do!. Remember fellow Postal Employees GOD hates a coward and all conservatives. Best of luck everyone. If I don't see you in the future I'll see you in the pasture. BRADLEY !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  I'm not an expert on class action suits, yet have seen many of the usps ones come to an end that takes care of the defendant and the law firm. The difference that I see in this suit is that employees were fired for simply being injured on the job. We all know this is illegal and that's a plus, however, what I see happening is still in usps benefit. They kept injured employees from receiving an excepted OWCP claim for injury by doing what they did, and in the end injured employees will receive monies that would have been equal to a scheduled award. In other words if you don't put in a stress claim with OWCP, (that you will win), which is a huge fight, USPS doesn't show that this company has injuries to their employees anymore, and OWCP doesn't have to pay them a monthly check. That's all this is about. So, I'm certain that injured employees from the beginning out in Cali. where the NRP started, will receive more monies out of this suit, but it is still the USPS getting out of taking care of their injured workers through OWCP, which is a huge expense for companies that have injured employees. At the end of any excepted OWCP claim, you at anytime can opt out and except a scheduled award and kiss them goodbye. You see, I hope, what I'm trying to say, which is the USPS is saving wicked money when they did this NRP thing. So, pretty much what you receive will be based on your injury in a round about way that the USPS created. Crafty sons a you know what. They have grouped all the injuries into one big one and certainly will be saving some buck. Big question with this suit is, is it LEGAL to let an employee go(FIRE) because they got hurt. My guess is NO. Yet only so much money is ever awarded and don't think this will be any different. Should be for sure, but just as sure it won't. What USPS have done here in my eyes, is eliminate any injured employee from receiving what is rightfully theirs workers' comp. benefits(monthly checks) and getting away with paying the STINKING scheduled award final payment. It's unbelievable really, that those clowns came up with this. This is why I STRESS to all that you get that stress claim in if you are still on the books. Just my opinion of coarse!! Still time to reconsider your actions on this situation. It's well worth the battle after all you've been through. You know you still have fight in you left, put it to good use.

I'm from the San Antonio area and it was a hard hit for a lot of us. you have the higher ups that kept their jobs when there was nothing for them to do. I have lost a few friends from suicide illnesses, and just plain old political rudeness. like I said lost of homes, life, ect. all for the few hundred dollars they want to throw at you. one day all will be heard. I pray that day comes soon for the unjust that they have imposed on those unfortunate ones. I can never be hold again as I get older it hurts worse. but they do not care they have saved a few billion dollars the millionaire Congressman Darrell Issa behind the whole postal theme take the money and put it in a fund so they can distribute it to other agency's. The new social security how thoughtful. and it is all a matter of record. you cannot hide from the media or social media.

If you are a McConnell class member, this case will determine your rights as a class member and any decision issued will have a binding effect upon you.The EEOC does not allow any class member to “opt out” of the class or choose not to be bound by a class complaint decision.A final decision by the EEOC finding that the Postal Service engaged in discrimination is binding on all members of the class and on the Postal Service. A finding of “no discrimination” is not binding on a class member’s individual complaint of discrimination. Although you may not exclude yourself from the class (opt out), you do not have to participate in this class complaint. If the AJ finds that the Postal Service discriminated against the class, you will have to file a claim to receive individual relief. In the event that liability is found, you will receive additional notice on how and when to file such a claim.If McConnell and the Postal Service wish to settle this case, you will be notified and given the opportunity to review the terms of the settlement, and to object or challenge the settlement. At this point a class member’s complaint of discrimination will have been settled. Realistically, any objections or challenges to the settlement by the class members will not override a settlement agreement between the parties. The EEOC Administrative Judge will uphold the agreement and the USPS will be off the hook.This is how the game is designed to play out.

Well said Charlie.
They have played with me for over 4 years and continue to do so today.
Presently are stating that I took LWOP on my own when I was NRP'd and I was denied OWCP at the same time and then was placed by the PO on LWOP for the next 4 1/3 years. Now it is effecting my earned time each pay period and will effect my service time. Next thing the PO will say there is no back pay owed for those years "as you took" LWOP on your own.
Always playing their games.

You know these so call class actions are a bunch of bull. the postal service dumps all this money in a retirement fund, and we are the ones get the shaft. Lives ruined homes lost, credit ruined, families displaced , and all you can muster is a few hundred dollars. where is the justice in that. and do not forget the fact if you seek out a new career you are limited on the money you can make. your whole life is screwed up because of an injury and no body gives a dam. this is what you call justice, this is what you will find (JUST US) no one cares you are just another pawn in the sick games of politics. the puppet master wins again.

There are over 100,000 people included in the legal action. That is not in dispute. Yes, there are people who suffered limited damages while others lost everything.

This case has been in litigation for years with no end in sight. When the end does come, does anybody really believe that every person in the class will be contacted and asked to itemize their damages? I doubt it. How many years would that take? Validating claims, calculations. The fact of the matter is that doesn't happen with class action lawsuits.

This is my last post here. I wish the best for all of the people in the class. In the end I would live to be able to buy a beach house with my part of the settlement but I probably won't be able to replace the tires on my truck.

Good Luck.

We do not know how many members of this suit there are. We do not know how many lost their jobs and were not called back as some were. Some were only out a brief time. Some were merely prevented from working overtime. Some were sent home early.

There are accepted members included for all sorts of reasons. No one should speculate on who is getting what or what the scope of this Judge's authority is because you do not know.

Can he force the USPS to give people their jobs back within their restrictions if they want them? I would be happy with that personally. As far as money per member goes, it would have to vary greatly from those who lost merely hours of pay to those who lost their jobs.

Does anyone even know how many people lost their jobs? It was not close to 100,000! We
had 3000 employees at our PDC and only 17 lost their jobs.

The only thing that is certain is the Lawyers getting a third of any settlement.

Good luck to all.

We all deserve and are out a 6 figure amount... Most of us are just saying hopefully it will happen but, don't get your hopes up that high.. It would be a bigger disappointment if you expected that and it doesn't come thru... I hope/wish most of all the best to the ones who lost the most...

I intended to win $160 million in Mega Millions last night but I guess I didn't intend hard enough.
