On an annual basis, Postal Support Employees who are assigned as PSE Sales/Service and Distribution Associates, D/A 81-4, will be eligible to purchase three (3) Type 2 shirts worn by employees assigned for retail operations. There is an allowance of up to $42.00 per shirt.

This ONLY applies to PSEs who have met the criteria listed below:

  1. Completed ninety (90) work days or have been employed for one hundred twenty (120) calendar days, whichever comes first;
  2. Successfully completed the required training and examination to be window qualified;
  3. Meet the requirements of the Employee Labor Relations manual (ELM) Section 932.11.g, which includes “Retail personnel … whose official assignment at a retail counter is for a minimum of 4 hours daily for 5 days a week on a continuing basis or for not less than 30 hours a week.’

If a PSE SSDA, who has met the above criteria, is subsequently assigned to a different PSE job title, and/or no longer meets the requirements of ELM 932.11.g, stated in #3 above, he/she will no longer be eligible for the uniform program.
