I look at it this way. We hear there are aprox. 130,000 people involved right? People say this the largest suit ever ? When we win, we will be entitled to lost wages. We also seek to be reinstated. The lost wages in my opinion would be easy to calculate. The money any of us received from OWCP, OPM and SSD doesn't enter into the picture according to the postal advocate. We would get SL and AL leave with the lost wages. This money would stop the bleeding so to speak. It will afford us instant relief in my opinion. So we are all reinstated, will they accommodate all of us with jobs that fit our limitations, or will they offer a lump sum separate from lost wages to have us sign off on everything else ! I just don't see how they can take each worker individually and settle. We'd be 115 years old by the time they did all that. I'm not looking to get everyone upset here. I just putting out there what I think might happen. I would do that. Lost wages as fast as they can cut the check! Then we negotiate an amount to cover everything else. And then Bradley walks away ( at my own pace ) I was never a runner. And they can kiss my butt goodbye. Just my thoughts. I could be all wrong and I probably am!

Kimmiek, like you, I received nothing.
This was my view, each NRP'd would have to present their case to the court for review to determine
how much harm was caused to them by the PO. Based on that, you would get a settlement. Like in any case you become the victim and must prove your case to get any type settlement.
This will hurt many because the PO will deny many of the complaints filed of harm caused.
Just my view, I have not heard a thing from any body.

Me. It was on the Thomas & Solomon site. www.nrpclassaction.com under CURRENT STATUS OF CASE, It reads "the administrative Judge so SHE" so from that I assumed the Administrative Judge is a women.

THIS is the biggest class action lawsuit in Federal history- EACH and every bit of discovery needs to be reviewed and that is 132 thousand Postal employees who had their own discriminatory end to their careers--so far in this suit-- PLUS if you know how it works the USPS will make objections and motions for summary judgement- IT goes on for a whole long time folks.

Ron in this case-- They consider this the largest Discriminatory case in Federal History-- Heads are going to roll for this one-- MANY employees are in financial ruin and are going to be presenting heavy damages before this judge some where I read that there was 62 thousand folks still out of the agency since they were NRP'd--That is a whole lot of people. We all had our ((((BAD)))) experience in our own way with these sociopaths and they are doing exactly what they normally do and that is back off and say we are sorry... You can't use the S word if you ruin peoples lives you need to PAY!

 Just wondering if there is anyone that got a vocational rehab job after being NRPed? I am presently doing one now. Awhile back got letter from PO sniffing around for info...there might be a job available within my restrictions. Talk to a HR manager who had a real dickheaded attitude. I just wanted to know about what might be offered and he didn't offer any real info.

  He was astonished to know that I had a vocational type of job. Of course I didn't give him any info about the job. Told him to ask OWCP pertaining to any info about me.

  Things kinda run slow in my district...lot of dead weight in HR office. Just waiting for another letter.

My view is the PO / HRM is bringing back all or as many NRP'd as they can. If they do not have a job / they say find one.
Now at the class action they tell the court they presently brought all or as many NRP'd back to work period. Of course the court was going to order them to do so but the PO is a head of the court on this main one.
PO puts X # of $$$ on the table but admits no wrong doing /where have we seen this happen often. Court accepts and case is over.
Now - what is the PO going to do with all these high price workers that the class action is settled ?
I bet I have a better than a good guess - how about you?

This is about MONEY. OWCP is trying to kick us back to the POST OFFICE who lets face it bailed them out. You have an injured worker. We don't need to accommodate them. Tell them no work available with your restrictions. Let them go onto OWCP for a year or two till they kick them off. Then they will take OPM as a last resort. Some will get SSD if they meet their strict disability standards . And we just wash our hands of the whole thing. Hire some 20 year olds to run the routes and it BONUS time baby!!!!! But now it looks like OWCP is taking a plan out of their play book. And who is the pawn in all this ? We are. BUT WE CAN"T QUIT NOW. Everyone one of us needs to jump back , into the ring and fight tooth and nail for ourselves and our children. Nobody else will.

This is a CONSTANT battle and I think we all know that. I'm tired of fighting, I am. And thats the truth. But we need to fight back . LIGHT Up (CALL THEM NO E-mails) the switchboards of your Congressman or Senator or better yet both. Get their fax numbers. Send them copies of the denial letters OWCP has sent you. FAX them the date of injury, a copy of the letter saying your injury has been excepted by OWCP the excepted code. My denial letter actual said for me to use my private insurance till the matter was straightened out. I will send a copy of that. We've all waited to long to let them pull their BS on us at the 11TH hour. THERE IS POWER IN NUMBERS. WE ALL NEED TO FIGHT BACK.
