This page contains links to reports provided to the union by the USPS that are used to monitor compliance with various provisions of the national agreement.
(Updated 04/15/13) Postal Support Employee (PSE) reports are sent to the APWU by the USPS. The purpose of the reports is to monitor compliance with our Collective Bargaining Agreement. The reports are on an Excel Spread Sheet and are provided by Postal Area and District in the Clerk Craft by Functional Area (F-1 and F-4). The Clerk Craft report also breaks out the PSE usage in the two remaining Remote Encoding Sites.
The spread sheet also includes tabs for PSE usage in the Maintenance and Motor Vehicle Service Crafts as well.
We are still in discussion with the USPS on the necessary further breakdowns that are required as well as how “new work” PSEs are defined.
(Updated 10/22/07) Man-year Reports are used to establish office size for purposes of compliance with Articles 7, 8 or 14 of the National Agreement, and the MOU re: PTF Reassignment Opportunities.
(Updated 12/06/10) Casual Compliance Reports are provided to the union on an Accounting Period basis to determine compliance with Article 7.1.B. of the National Agreement. Please note that the rules for casual usage have changed with the 2006 National Agreement. A detailed explanation of the new casual limits can be found on the Casual Compliance Reports page.
PTR Compliance Reports
(Updated 12/06/10) PTR Compliance Reports are provided to the union on an Accounting Period basis to determine compliance with Article 7.3.D of the 2006 National Agreement, which states that the number of part-time regular employees who may be employed shall not exceed 2.5% of the total number of career employees covered by this Agreement.
Dual Casual Reports
(Updated 12/01/10) Dual casual reports are provided to the union on an Accounting Period basis. The report monitors the use of Postmaster Reliefs, Rural Reliefs and other employees whose primary appointment is outside of the APWU crafts, but who have a “dual appointment” permitting them to also work as a casual in APWU crafts. There are two reports for each Accounting Period, an APWU On-Rolls Dual Employees report, and an APWU Paid Dual Employees report. The first report lists all employees with a current “dual appointment” as a casual designated to work in the APWU bargaining unit. The employees on this first report count toward the maximum number of permitted casuals in an office or District. The second report indicates which of the employees on the first report actually worked as casuals in an APWU bargaining unit during the Accounting Period.
Casual Exception Period
(10/22/10) Article 7.1.B.5 of the National Agreement provides exceptions to the six percent and 11 percent casual caps during accounting periods 3 and 4. For Fiscal Year 2011, the casual exception period will be from Nov. 20, 2010 through Jan. 14, 2011.
Penalty Overtime Exclusion Period
(10/22/10) The December period referenced in Article 8, Sections 4 and 5, of the National Agreement, during which penalty overtime regulations are not applicable, consists of four consecutive service weeks. (See Why Is the Penalty Overtime Exclusion Period Only 28 Days?) This year the period begins Pay Period 26-10, Week 1 (Dec. 4, 2010) and ends Pay Period 01-11, Week 2 (Dec. 31, 2010).
