/m2758 that is the first time I saw that...you're right it sucks but nobody is holding a gun to their head. They can go find a new job if it's not enough money.

 I have averaged about $1 an hour raise for every year I have worked at the P.O. Not too many other companies can say that. 1999-$13.63 an hour......2014- $28.09 an hour

The charts are for carriers hired before Jan 2013 and after,if you are hired after as a CCA then make regular it looks like 16.92 is correct.

/m2749 NCR step A for a FTR is $21.58 an hour. That's in effect for the duration of the contract. Are you a full-time carrier or Cca? Like I said if you are FTR making 16.82 your pay is messed up

NECarrier /m2753 Give up already! I have already proven to you from language of the arbitrators. You don't seem to know the word "opting" is. Have a good night!

/m2747 You just do the same thing over and over, calling it "bidding" doesn't make that the right terminology. The term for exercising your preference for a temporarily vacant assignment is opting. The term for attempting to acquire a permanent assignment is bidding.
Using the terms interchangeably may be what happenes in your office, or even by some arbitrators, however, that does not change the fact that the two terms are NOT interchangeable and have different meanings in the JCAM.
Boards like this exist for exchanging information and answering questions. When you tell CCAs that they can bid on routes, it is misinformation. They can opt on temporarily vacant routes, but they cannot bid on routes.

cacca /m2734 When you learned how to do research like me using references from Arbs and proven any case, then you may try to correct me.

/m2735 if you are a FTR and making $16.42 an hour your pay is messed up.

I am sure you have the Contract CD or you can search the MRS from NALC.org. I will provide you the language from C-06461.

Opinion of theArbitrator
The other relevant provisions are Sections 3, 4 and 5 of Article 41 .2.b which allow full-time reserve letter carriers and
part-time flexible carriers to use their seniority to bid for craft duty assignments of five days or more . A successful bidder "shall work
 that duty assignment for its duration" .

I believe I have proven my case.

Here is another one for you!!! C-25537
On May 12, 2004, PTF Carrier Leon Powell, the grievant herein, initiated a Step A
grievance. Grievant submitted a Form 3971 to Management indicating he was bidding on route
2035 for the duration of time not covered.

I respect both of you with your knowledge of the contract. I am sure that I have provided the language to both of you.

I think both of you misunderstand the word opting. I will cut and paste from JCAM.

Opting on Temporary Vacancies. Article 41.2.B.3, 41.2.B.4 and
41.2.B.5 provide a special procedure for exercising seniority in filling
temporary vacancies in full-time duty assignments. This procedure,
called “opting,” allows carriers to “hold down” vacant duty assignments
of regular carriers who are on leave or otherwise unavailable to work
for five or more days.
Full-time reserve…. (Article 41.2.B.3)

Further it explains how many times you may bid during a contract, but it mentioned that there is no restriction on bidding on a hold down.
Although Article 12.3 of the National Agreement provides that “an
employee may be designated a successful bidder no more than seven (7)
times” during the contract period, a national settlement (H1N-1E-C
25953, May 21, 1984, M-0513) ….. Moreover, opting
is not “restricted to employees with the same schedule as the vacant
position” (H1N-1J-C 6766, April 17, 1985, M-0843). Rather, an
employee who opts for a hold-down assignment assumes the scheduled
hours and non-scheduled day of the opted assignment. (See “Schedule
Status,” below.)

Rick, please delete it if you feel that this post is inappropriate. I am just trying to clarify to both posters.

NECarrier- Here is another arb C-26110.
.....She testified that her procedure, where an opt comes in after the time for bidding on opts has expired for that week , is to approach the part time flexible
carriers, in order of seniority , to see who she can get to fill the opt . On February 15' or 16',....

Would you like me to show you another one?
