This USPS Step 4 Denial outlines Management's position on whether management violated Article 38 of the National Agreement by not selecting the grievant, an ET-9, for training. It was the position of the Postal Service that whether or not an employee at a local office should be selected for training not covered by the National Agreement, as in this case, was not a national interpretive question. Based on a thorough review of the grievance file, and pertinent regulations including ELM 713, they found no justification for disturbing the determinations relative to training needs previously made by the local management officials.
