The Service and this union had recently reached a negotiated settlement that on 5.27.2016 would post twenty-seven  vacant bid assignments.
Therefore, it is advisable, based upon the upcoming bid assignments, and to avoid any difficulties in securing an assignment that if you are on light or limited duty you must provide a medical note stating that you will be able to perform the position within six months without restrictions or limitations. It is also advisable that if you are an Acting Supervisor [204B] you should step down and provide the Service with a memo terminating your 204B detail.
Disclaimer; The above recommendations are only a suggestion and does not negate the union from filing a grievance when and if applicable.
Please review the attached arbitration award issued by arbitrator Pecklers. In this issue, the union was arguing that the use of Bulk Mail Containers [BMC] at the FKI Linear Sorter [walk-side] is a safety hazard based upon loading procedures, their size, and they are difficult to maneuver. The arbitrator, regrettably did not see it our way and denied the case permitting the Service to continue using BMC’s.
