Holiday Peak Exception Period Terms Also Reached

Major Win for the MVS Craft - POM 1995 Language Restored

WEB NEWS ARTICLE #: 
89-2018

09/13/2018 - When the USPS made changes to Chapters 5 and 7 of the Postal Operations Manual (POM) in 1995, APWU challenged the changes as not fair, reasonable, and equitable. While USPS agreed to restore the language in 2007 and again in 2012, they never did. APWU never stopped fighting. On August 28, we reached an agreement with the USPS to restore the language within 12 weeks. "This language is significant because it protects work that is presently being performed in the MVS Craft," said Michael Foster, Motor Vehicle Service (MVS) Division Director.

In addition to winning the fight to restore POM language, APWU MVS teams reached an agreement for the Holiday Peak Season Exception Periods. The previous Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) for MVS was signed as part of the 2015-2018 CBA, and will expire September 20 with the CBA. A new MOU was necessary to ensure our full rights are upheld during the holiday season. APWU negotiators were able to reach a fair deal with the USPS. Under the new MOU, the Peak Season Exception Period will run from November 10, 2018 - Jan 4, 2019, and the USPS is required to "make every effort to ensure that available MVS craft PTFs are utilized at the straight-time rate prior to assigning such work to MVAs."
