APWU Retirees Wanted for Holiday Work Again This YearNew APWU MOU Regarding Peak Season Exception Periods and the Use of Annuitants

APWU, USPS has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to reemploy retirees as Holiday Clerk Assistants (HCAs) during the “peak” season.

The parties agreed to a, “one-time modification to change the 2016 peak exception period in Function 1 from November 12, 2016 through January 6, 2017. In Function Four, HCAs will be hired from November 12 through December 23, 2016 or November 26, 2016 through January 6, 2017. This does not extend the length of the exception periods.”

In addition, the parties agreed:

  •  The parties reaffirm that there never was an agreement to create and post so-called “Holiday PSEs,” and the Standard Position Description for a PSE (Holiday Work/Term) will be removed from BQnet.
  •  Letters will be sent to eligible annuitants, notifying them of the PEP opportunity, no later than August 1 of each year.
  •  The Postal Service will provide the APWU at the national level with the number of annuitants hired and hours utilized for each week of the exception period (this is in addition to the requirement to provide HCA numbers.)

This MOU doesn’t explain who are considered “eligible annuitants.” How does the retiree get an invitation if they moved more than one year ago?

  1. Well, what can they say?. They have to look after their buddy’s. They don’t want
    anybody back that might make them look bad. If they aren’t losing money, what is
    the world coming to. break even , what in the heck is that?. if it isn’t lost, They
    might start believing that it could be delivered some day. even if they do as good of
    job as Cliff on Cheers. Hey at least it’s at the right location.

  2. So, why don’t they just open the door to having retirees be able to work more often, say during summer AL months, instead of only during the Christmas season? If it doesn’t affect your retirement annuity, many would go for it, even at a part time rate. I know our office is hurting for trainers, why not hire qualified retirees to perform training duties, if regular clerks are not available, due to short staffing?

  3. the betrayers, MOE BILLER, BURESS, WHATEVER, ENJOYING RETIREMENT, NO THANKS T0 OUR UNION

  4. NEVER CONTACTED ME,THANKS APWU, FROM CLIFTON NJ OFFICE TO DC, ALL THE YEARS OF DUE PAYING, THANKS MCGOVERN, LOOK IT UP???????????????????

  5. Last year, this same offer was sent out. I know several retired clerks who applied. None of them were chosen, yet several retired supervisors were hired as Holiday PSEs. What gives?
