 Letter from John Olive regarding Tour-1 Automation Clerks

There is nothing more disruptive to a worker's life than a change in work hours. Because of this the APWU has negotiated hard and fast limits on when and how drastically these changes can be made by the employer. However, I have scrutinized the recent reporting time changes and they are quite legal. For the reasons discussed below I hope you find this information to be responsive to your questions:

To All Concerned:

The Federal Wage System (OPM, FLSA etc.) governs shift work in the Post Office. For the Post Office the barrier between tours 3 and 1 is 2000 (8:00 PM).

Articles 8.2.A and 8.2.B of our Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA) establish our work week and work day for issues such as Night Differential and Sunday Premium.

Reposting of Clerk Duty Assignments, with some exceptions, is required by a list of circumstances in Article 37.3.A.4 (CBA) and LMOU Item 21 G. Time changes are cumulative beginning, in our case, on November 21, 2010 through today (measured with a circle).

Further, Tours are defined in three places in our Local Memorandum of Understanding (LMOU); Item 9, Leave; Item 14, Overtime; and Item 18, Excessing. These limits were negotiated to govern only when the individual issues (Items) to which they are attached are applied. The Postal Service cannot negotiate its federally mandated tours for timekeeping purposes. I have scrutinized the recent change and I assure you that no one has been moved to a different tour or to a different work day or work week.

There has been no violation. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or comments regarding this information. In the meantime, I remain

Yours in Peace and Union Solidarity,
John
