All clerks have some form of local agreement now. Either their own local, or the national one that covers offices that don't have their own. Check the APWU site.

/m6530 I doubt it very much. Every place has their own local prime-time rules, so no one here or at nat'l can say one way or the other.

Get hold of your union office or read your local agreement if there is one.

I am a clerk working in a small office with one other FT and a pse that works in our office and one other small office 10 miles away. When choosing vacation prime time picks is it ok to choose 4 consecutive week?

Thank you for your help and information. The process has begun, so it is just a matter of time for approval now.

/m6525 You must have gotten a letter when you were assigned to your current NTFT job so that's what's gotta be followed. If you're in a RMPO or APO, that could override what's in Art 8. And I'm assuming you're in a office with under 200-man years so that's another complication.

If you can figure it out at the link from postalvet, good. But you really need to chat with your local union office to be sure what your rights are.

Being a recent PM, you're probably not an APWU member. That matters because union reps are often too busy to spend time with non-members. But try anyway since it costs you nothing.

Your office may have set unchangeable hours for lunch due to MVS run schedules. If not, and you want to close the window at noon rather than 1 as has been done previously, I say do it. But again, I'd feel better if I talked to local union first.

read article 8 section one, it is either 8 hours within 10 or 8 hours within 9, depending on the size of the office.

but this might not apply if an rmpo or an apo.

I have a question about the 1hour lunch and how they change from 2.25 hr lunch to 1 hour lunch? I'm a PM turned NTFT on 10/1/16. I still have a 2.25 hr lunch? Is the process to change the lunch break the same as if someone wanted to change a post office's retail hours?

m6522: The PMG said in an interview in the little newsletter Pacific Area Update, that there are no plans for a buyout. So don't hold your breath

MITZIELLIE1 /m6517 - it all sounds a little bogus to me. Settlements are not handed out in cash to the union. Or the plant manager.

Our clerk union is keeping settlement money for themselves. Our plant manager lets them distribute the money as they see fit. The
last couple of settlements were divided up among the union vice president and his wife. Can I get a copy of these settlement without
going through our crooked union? Once I get a copy then what can I do? Please help.
