The Post Office doesn’t care about their employees, what is important to them, is that the mail be delivered no matter what? I was first getting pain in my left hand in December 2009 I was a Rural Carrier, I made my Supervisor aware of my issue, I was told I could not go to the Doctor, because it was Almost Christmas and that there was no one to cover my Route, , long story short, I have had 4 Surgery for Carpo Tunnel On both Hands, on and off my doctor have me off work, after a few months, my Doctor said I could do light duty under NRP, my Station manager said I could Clean then women toilets, I was training with a Janitor for a couple of days, the chemical made me ill, so I went back to my doctor, and advised him off the light duty assignment, mind you, I was a Rural Carrier and NEVER been a Janitor in my entire life, and I had use of one hand, This was so degrading to me, as my Station manager was And is a Racist, The Post Office needs to get hit in their pockets, and treat people like Human Beings, So frustrated, I could go on with the Unfair treatment.

Not a great suggestion, you would only need that info if you were denied compensation and was filling an appeal using a different attorney! Why clog up the T&S system beforehand? I don’t usually post here! But some suggestions seem to come from management mouthpieces! USPS inspectors were NOT craft employees and only went after management if they themselves were wronged! So beware who you listen to!

I suggest all NRP members retaining T&S demand via e-mail a e-mailed copy of your claim brief with ALL supporting documents attached for you personal records. Make sure you request/demand has a date the request is to be sent "before close of business Friday July 19, 2019" or whatever date you want it by.

There is a new update on the T&S Website

Update – July 15, 2019
Status Update – Claim Statements Filed

There is only two scenarios either the judge denied their motion for an extension, or she didn’t respond, forcing them to comply with her Order and not miss the July 15 filing deadline.

PEA That's funny. I must be paranoid, too. I thought it was me. I don't know anything about IP's, but some of my posts go to moderator and other's don't. Not really sure why. I think it has to do with whether I'm on my home wifi or not.

First, for the record, I only post from one IP address, so any reference on the other discussion forum to “a certain poster who keeps posting with various IP addresses”, isn’t me. Excuse my paranoia, but over there I’ve been referred to as “a certain poster” so many times that I thought it was a de facto reference to me.

There’s been some discussion about whether or not T&S filed a motion for an extension. I haven’t seen their motion, however, I have seen the agency’s response to that motion. On July 8th, the agency filed their response, noting that “Phase I counsel seeks to continually delay adjudication through their repeated attempts to drag out the claims process and manufacture non-existent discovery disputes.” [p. 5]

It’s interesting that the P.O. accuses T&S of continual delays where the P.O. still hasn’t issued dispute statements for those who received partially accepted FADs. All FADs, whether partially accepted, or not, had to be Vacated if not first adjudicated by the AJ. And until the AJ issues a Decision, and Orders the Postal Service to issue those dispute statements, there is no prejudice to either side to permit an extension.

With regard to the “non-existent discovery disputes”, the Postal Service is claiming “the NRP files are not necessary to assert or determine a claim for relief. However, to avoid further delay and allow the AJ to see the files for herself, if she chooses to review them, the Postal Service will produce the remaining NRP files to the AJ shortly.” [Id.]

In my view, if the agency can produce copies of the NRP activity files to the AJ, they could simultaneously make copies for class member’s representatives and pro se claimants. It doesn’t appear that production of those files were as “Herculean” as Ms. Burton had represented to the AJ during the prior Status Conference.

To my knowledge, the AJ has not issued any rulings or orders since she rescheduled the Status Conference, which is currently scheduled for Tuesday, 06 August 2019, if it’s not rescheduled again. It’s anticipated that she will issue rulings on all outstanding motions at that time. Since the issue of partially-accepted claims was briefed by all parties, we can expect a ruling on that matter as well.

It’s possible/likely that the AJ will Order the P.O. to issue dispute statements on the remaining class members who have not received one (speculating by 26 August), and give those remaining class members 20-days to respond (ostensibly by around 20 September when you count 5-days for mailing). I’m throwing these dates out as the ‘best-case scenario’ when speculating about how much longer it will take for the AJ to start adjudicating these claims. I have NO idea the time she will need to download everyone’s claim information, as well as the agency’s responses, into the purported software program to sort them all out. I hope to glean more information about the software program, what metrics are used to determine the amount of compensation, and whether it will make compensation determinations without the AJ having ever actually read any of the documents. Does she intend to just rubberstamp the determination made by the software program? No doubt, it will likely speed up the process, but will it also achieve just compensation?

My other concern is that there may be challenges as to the “legality” of adjudication by R2D2. Such additional legal challenges could also serve to slow down, or delay the claims process while that issue is determined. If the claims are adjudicated by a software program, it also opens an opportunity for the Postal Service to issue FADs Rejecting the “AJ’s Decision” on the basis that the decision did not really come from an AJ, and allowing a software program to decide would be unprecedented.

Of course, I’m entirely speculating, however I’m also trying to anticipate what kind of malevolence the Postal Service could be up to.

Rivkah, do you know if the AJ approved the extension? Thanks.

I never said t&s didn't file an extension. All I said is that they didn't mentioned it with the information they gave me today.

Jar22 is correct. T&S did file a motion for an extension last month and the PO has challenged it. It is unclear whether the extension has been granted or denied.

I hope the extension does not affect the ones that are not with T&S

I don’t make things up just to post. They filed a motion for an extension last month. Perhaps the judge didn’t grant the motion, but you know that you can’t believe a d@mn thing T&S tells you. There are quite a few individuals that know about the motion. People have stopped posting factual information because you refuse to believe it. Either you want updated information or you want to remain in the dark. Which is it?
