/m4360 Your union rep? What union? I started out as a PMR, and we had no union. If you are referring to the organization formerly known as NAPUS, that is not a union. They provide some legal services and resources for their members, but again, as they are not represented employees with collective bargaining rights or certified by the NLRB, they are not a union.

Something in this story doesn't smell quite right.

i got hired as a SSDA (clerk) Ptf but a career position and I failed my exam 421 before my 90-days. I know for sure I can keep my position but I am being separated. How can I fight this. I am trying everything I can. In addition I am a veteran 30% or higher disability. Thanks.

You would have to put the box on the line of travel that is already established. Service can not be extended into the free box area. Delivering of packages would depend on how far the house is from the line of travel where the box is located.

Thanks, Even though I do not work there any more people ask me questions all the time. I was under the impression service could not be extended into the free box area. So everyone can put up a mailbox eliminate the need for the Post Office itself. If they put up big boxes it would be easier to pick up packages as our office is never open at very good times for anyone that has a job. Can the packages be delivered to the house then if it is only 200 feet? Can they take advantage of carrier pick up?

Yes if it is on the carriers line of travel you.can put up a mailbox.

If I live in a free box area can I put up a mailbox on the route even if it is not near my house.

I am glad you did. I think not enough people know they can do that.

Most certainly got unemployment. I filed early when I knew a Nfty would take my job, and then refiled. I advised other PMR to also file. I am now collecting Social Security, knowing I can earn a small amount each month if PO decides to call me to work =very unlikely

/m4351 Assuming it's not too late to do so -- don't know if there may be a "statute of limitations" on claiming it....

/m4348 If the post office had you as an OIC then it was not an RMPO as a RMPO is managed from another office (APO). It would have become an RMPO at the point you were relieved as OIC and the APO postmaster took over, which would likely have coincided with the date the NTFT started.

I have been reading all the posts here about different pay for different work. I am a PMR, 20 years, and from April 2013-March 2015 I was OIC of my office. In March 2015 a NTFT assumed duties of office, however I continued to relieve her for days off and vacation until March of this year- a violation of the MOU, that a PMR only to work in a 2 hr RMPO. At that time I relinquished my keys and my accountability in office was closed and I have not worked since.

  My question is, since I was relieving in a 6 hour RMPO , and according to the MOU a PMR was not to work in a 6hr RMPO, should I have been paid the same hourly rate as a NTFT? Also what date would my office have been "officially" changed to RMPO? In other words did the RMPO become a RMPO, only when the NTFT resumed duties, or was I, a PMR, working in a RMPO for months before the NTFT?

One last note, I am still employed by USPS , but have not worked since March. Any idea when I or other PMRs will be terminated?

/m4341 /m4342 /m4343 There are a lot of PMRs still on the rolls largely because it costs almost nothing to keep them there, and probably costs more to terminate them. PMRs earn no benefits or pay when they don't work, so the cost of keeping them "on the rolls" but idle is practically nothing. They are probably hoping many of them just quit in frustration, and the rest of them, maybe they can occasionally slide into a role somewhere else, in a 2-hour office or actually relieving a postmaster in some situations.

PMRs work the 2 hr offices.

I have not received a PS50. What did your 50 have as the change?

/4342 I'm in Western NJ. Lost my hours in July of 2015 but didn't get my SF50 until July 2016, Was surprised that there are still PMR'S on the rolls!
