OFFICER MAILBOX

---  NEXT UNION MEETING: February 04, 2018 ---

SIGN UP FOR eMAIL ALERTS

The Local is building an eMail Alert list which will be used in concert with our Twitter and Facebook pages to keep members informed of important happenings, meeting reminders, and calls to action.  This email list will not be used to flood your mailbox with messages.  It will be reserved for important announcements.  We will not share your email information with any other group or company.

 

 

To join the LVAL email alert list, send an email to eMailAlerts@lvapwu.org.  Include your name, office and email address.

 

BOYCOTT THE 'SHAKER' SURVEY

The USPS has announced plans to conduct employee surveys to evaluate more than 50 different clerk craft duty assignments.  Management claims this is being done to improve efficiency and ensure job descriptions match the duties of the assignment.

 

The APWU does not believe this for a second.  The Unions and employees have been burned before by employee surveys and USPS promises not to use the results to impact jobs.  We explore this in a bulletin board posting.

 

The Lehigh Valley Area Local will be conducting a contest as part of our "Say 'No' to Surveys" campaign.  Anyone who brings their survey to the union office for "proper handling" will be entered into a drawing.  Drawings will be held several times throughout the year.  Associate Office clerks can send a email to surveys@lvapwu.org including your name, office and date you trashed your survey.

 

We'd like to see people get creative with their survey handling.  Send a photo / video to the email address above showing the appropriate filing of your survey and we will post them on our website / facebook page.  Have some fun, but keep it clean(!) and be safe.

Got an Overpayment Letter?
USPS ISSUES OVERPAYMENT LETTERS:  LETTERS OF DEMAND TO FOLLOW
Some employees have received overpyament notices, from the USPS, related to the Article 1.6 Global Settlement payouts from 2016.  These letters [sample] indicate that the employee received an overpayment and that the postmaster or supervisor will be issuing a Letter of Demand seeking to recover the monies paid.

Of course, it goes without saying that ANY employee who receives a Letter of Demand should immediately contact their shop steward. If you receive one of these overpayment letters, you should complete PS Form 3074 - Waiver of Erroneous Payment and submit it to your postmaster.  You should also provide a copy to your steward.
