Does anyone know why the usps in Manhattan abolishing some custodians positions and changing scheduling times? Also all custodians have to rebid for their jobs. Just received my walking paper on Friday, "position eliminated".

/m1961 That depends on your circumstances. If you are new to the maintenance craft, management has 15 days to notify you in writing that you have 30 days to request to take any or all maintenance exams, see Article 38.5.B.6. If you are already in maintenance and have previously taken the old exams under MSS, then you can request to update your old rating, see Article 38.5.D. I you have never taken the old tests or the new 955 exam, then you have to wait for the next open season in March 2018, see Article 38.5.B.7.

Basically read Article 38 of the Collective Bargaining Agreement. You should have received a copy of the new C.B.A in the mail or go to APWU.org.

1949- Write up a request to transfer to whatever position you would like to change to, sign, date and keep a copy. You need to put in your request before they start the hiring process for the new position.

I have the opportunity to become either a career custodian or a Level 17 Customer Service Supervisor. What are the pros and cons of each craft? From what I gathered during the interview, seems like new Supervisors get worked like a rented mule. Any objective opinions?

@Eric They have 15 days after you get to new installation to offer you the opportunity to take the test for all maintenance positions in the installation. If you are in a small office that only has custodian positions, then you can take the inservice exam when it is offered at a bigger installation.
