How does higher level pay work when asked to box mail, retrieve and scan parcels for the retail customers, use the PASS for pallets of FedEx and UPS deliveries, and do mail dispatch? I have been doing these Clerk tasks for over a year. 30-50% of every work day is Clerk Craft work for me.

In August 2016, I was hired as a Maintenance Mechanic at a P&DC in California, but I declined the position due to unforeseen circumstances. I re-applied for the same position with a different district in California in July 2017, but I was not selected for this position. I have a valid MAINTENANCE MECHANIC 955 (4749-03XX) assessment with a score of 80.97, which expires on 08/03/2022.

A few days ago, I received an email titled "failed assessment”, and contained the following message: " …your current rating on the exam required for this position is "377", which makes you ineligible for this position." My question is what does the number "377" mean?

Hey All - you may want to read the GAO article I just posted at PEN's blog entitled "GAO Lists Key Considerations for Potential Changes to USPS’s Monopolies" - the article includes a short video from the GAO Watchdog. Folow this link:

You can change from carrier to clerk or vice versa, when there is an opening. Put a request in writing to your Postmaster and keep a dated copy. The request is best made Before there is an opening.

1982 Having just switched from clerk to custodian in my office 2 weeks ago here is what they said were rules. Post in-office for apwu clerks first, if no takers than offer to carriers if still no takers than ereasign.No test required currently waived. Good luck so far looks like a great move for me.

Does anyone have any knowledge of how a carrier can convert to a custodian position that is vacant in his office?

Clerks in our installation will finally start getting paid custodial hours in addition to our clerk hours.
Who is responsible for snow removal, mowing/landscaping, pressure washing building, exterior windows, etc... jobs that require the use of gas powered tools and ladders?

I was told by PM the cleaning person is responsible, but up to now we've had a cleaning contract with a non-employee self-employed contractor... still, the mowing was contracted out to a service for one of the offices.
Seems to me, if the office clerk has to do the mowing, the USPS would have to buy the equipment, store it on premises, and train the clerk on safe usage.

It also seems to me that this is work that should be assigned to the maintenance craft.

Any thoughts?

 I work at a large plant. We have custodians, maintence mechanics, maintenance electricians, and a vancancy for a maintence support clerk was recently posted. So the answer is yes.
