I am glad that some people have wised up and FINALLY realize that we will not get was is due to us. It is so sad to see some of these posts. Last time I checked in, people were so hopeful that we would get compensated for what the USPS has done to each one of us. Now everyone is talking about getting out the paperwork to fight this. What happened to the NRP CLASS ACTION AND THE EEO CLASS ACTION that I was FORCED into? Now we have to hire an attorney and dig through 10 years of paperwork to justify our cause? Then we have to relive all of it again and again? To me it is not worth the paper it is written on. Let alone the effort. I know in my heart that I will never be compensated for the things I lost. IF I receive compensation from the po it will stand on it's own merit. If not, nothing changes. There is not enough money for just the mental anguish that those people have put us through. My Postmaster has retired, my doctor has retired, the arbitrator that got me my job back that the po did not honor has retired. It is just not worth it. I am a burden to society but so what. It's not that I didn't work 27 years before they kicked me out. It's not my fault that I only get $1500. a month to live on. After a foreclosure, a bankruptcy, a lien and the bill collectors I have wised up and they can look at my financial records all they want and accept the 25 dollar payment on a 16,000.00 debt. I will die before I pay it off, but so what.What are they gonna do to me. Take away my birthday? I have given too much of myself already to that God forsaken place. I will not give them anything else. To those of you that have the stamina to continue the fight-good luck--but I have to live my "golden years" happily and there is no room for the post office in it.

Re: Bulldog 6625

I am a cynic. I Googled and found Mr. Grilo to be one of about 50 government relation representatives with his responsibility being the State of Ohio.

My knowledge of how these people work in other fields is as follows:

1. Letter is received from government official.

2. Case is reviewed and current status is explained and confirmed.

3. The government official attaches a cover letter and sends this response. This ends about 80% of the cases. Note that the cover letter from the government official does not indicate the response was ever read.

4. If the aggrieved party makes a follow-up, the government official sends a second letter. It is at this point a case is begun to be taken seriously. Maybe in this case the government relations representative might get something accomplished. It is at best a 50/50 chance.

When I owned a business and received a complaint from the Michigan regulator she told me not to worry and explained the above process to me. In that case I never received a second letter after I responded once.

In the case of the NRP it is clearly the case that no government relations representative straightened that situation out to the benefit of the class of effected employees.

I hope that explains my cynicism.

For those of you who are having problems with the USPS and/or their personnel, perhaps you might want to convey your concerns to Mr.Timothy Grilo, Government Relations Representative United States Postal Service, 475 L'Enfant Plaza SW, Washington, DC 20260. This is where my Senator sent a letter with my concerns. This is just another opportunity to express your problems and treatment by the USPS. If it hadn't been for my Senator I would never have heard of this man. Hope this information helps someone. God Bless!

cally 1986: YES, keeping precise documentation as date, time, who you spoke to by name, and if anyone possible heard you speaking on every contact, as well as it is advisable to send at times a certified letter with it stating "your understanding". This verifies that the communication was clear and given every party thr opportunity to rebuttal "if" it was misunderstood at any point!! When making a point on YOUR health, take every precaution to state the facts as they unfolded!! You'll thank yourself for doing that extra work to keeping goid and truthful facts together!! Record keepers "can" see some light a little quicker.....

cally1986 My suggestion is to let them try to give you a letter of warning and let the union fight it. However, DO NOT LIE about how your accident happened no matter what they threaten. Even if the union doesn't help you after going through all of the steps a letter of warning only lasts a year and then can be removed. Have someone check the machine out in case a safety problem exists. If anyone gives you a hard time write to your Senators and Congressman and let them know what your boss suggested. Have them look into it, but stick to your guns. If need be, become the thorn in their side. Don't give them power over you. Stick to the TRUTH. Remember, "the truth shall set you free," and help bury them in their lies. Hope this helps. God Bless!

PS In your statement make certain to mention what your boss wanted you to do.

I work as a pse clerk for usps and I recently lost part of a finger working on a dbcs machine. I was working by myself per bosses orders and my ginger got caught between racks. My boss has been threatening to fire me if I don't say the accident happened a certain way. If I go along with management they said I'd get a letter of warning in my file. I'm not sure what to do?

Disablevetinmaine:6619 :: I don't know if you are aware, but on this site where you look up the status of your case, if you truly cannot find doctors, there is a list that have registered to see DOL patients. Hope this is helpful and I wish you success. I know you pains and struggles. I was stripped from my doctors as DOL thought i was fakung my injuries and my doctors were fabricating my conditions on the medical report. I sent a certified and asked OWCP to do an order to shred or dispose of all my tests and reports!! I thrn asked they send me to "their" doctor of choice to redo all x-rays, scans, nerve test & MRI. Then, have their own doctors do the report findings as I cannot forge any medical tests for them to read!! I never heard another word, as well as they attempted to leave me with NO physicians, thus "trying" to close my cases because of no updates medical. It's been a tough road for nearly 15-years.... but I'm still surviving!! Hang in there and God Bless all my injured federal workers.

I also wanted to say I was placed in the NRP in 2006 and shortly after returning to work in 2009 the Postal service tried to force me into the clerk craft forcing me to go back to full capacity. For three years I was in extreme pain. Until September of 2012 .

  I had a hard time finding a doctor who would take a workers compensation claim, their not willing to take a chance ,also no lawyer was willing to fight the Postal service or the DOL. Dr.Bean was a rehabilitation doctor who works for insurance companies and businesses.

  I was working at the Portland maine P&DC in 2006 when I had my second work related knee replacement in June 2006. When I was cleared to go back to my rehab position which I had since 2001 the plant manager,Doug Bailey ,told me don't bother we abolished your job and we have no work for you. The plant moved into a new facility in July and my union president told me he had quote," Bigger fish to fry," ,really. I was out of work on owcp for over three years. I then got my restrictions upgraded and I was offered another rehab position,which I accepted in 2009. I worked three years until I blew out my right shoulder doing work that they knew I shouldn't be doing. I had to have shoulder replacement in September of 2012. My PCP at the time moved to New Hampshire and I was forced to find another PCP, a Dr. Bean. He saw me for three months and decided he didn't want to treat me anymore,with the collaboration of the Postal nurse Kathy Dyer talking to OWCP and telling Dr. Bean ,he made up new restrictions for me and forced me out of his office,restrictions that allowed OWCP to force me back to work ,case manager, Swiss Roberson. They offered me a job after 29 years a clerk job working 12 -8 from midnight to eight in morning with Tuesday,Wednesday off. The workers compensation officer and the PO nurse also told me I would retain my seniority within the clerk craft which was a lie, The job was throwing letters into a hand case with my newly replaced should, I was three weeks in when I had to go back to therapy due to extreme tendinitis in my shoulder from working throwing mail. I then tried to 're-submit for workers comp again and was denied, even though my new PCP documented that I couldn't work due to my on job injury. I appealed trying to get help from my Senator,Susan Collins who's office did nothing but made their bed with the DOL and the Postal Service. I was unemployed for five months ,unable to pay my bills and forced to retire ,disability retirement.As far as I'm concerned,nobody cares,the Postal service,DOL ,people in the Postal service,VA, so now at 64 I'm forced to go back to school as a freshman to find a career to support myself, because a $1050.00 a month doesn't make ends meet. That's my story and if you think you can trust anyone in the system than think again, thank year u.

I was sent home in November 2009 in the National reassessment process. My claim has been closed, reopened and closed again because the Doctors now say it is a preexisting medical condition.

NC520.. jjmv is right they all know what they are doing.. probably trying to get you back to work hoping you will go against your med dr's restrictions... if your PM is requesting medical documentation, give it to him, explain the NRP, send a copy of your accepted work injury, lastest Ca-17 (state this all in your letter) and then state seeing you are threatning me, you are requesting to be restored to a suitable limited duty job offer within your med restrictions because the reason you are out of work is due to the discriminatory action the PO took when they implicated the NRP on you... Also say you are responding within the 5 day timeframe he has allowed you... Then say you will be waiting for his written response.. Remember PO is only allowed a CA-17. You are complying with his request.. I would not go back into the PO without a job offer... You can also call the union in Washington for advice also... Not sure but Ron Watson was the last one I remember...

Thank you Metoo 6609. Yes, job related and on OWCP. Complied with all requests for medical information etc... from USPS district office and OWCP from the beginning to present. Any information the local PO lost can easily be accessed by the local pm from either of those sources.
