The locals are filing grievances on the improper separations and the failure to return them to work.
Second, Article 1.6.b grievances are being filed locally when supervisors are performing kitting and labeling and the JCIM has the agreed to monetary remedy.
Third, Article 7 crossing craft grievances are being filed locally when other crafts are performing the kitting and labeling and the JCIM had the agreed to monetary remedy language.
It is a very clear that if supervisors mail handlers, and other crafts are performing PSA kitting and labeling that the PSEs were improperly released for lack of work and surely will be made whole for not being returned to work.
It is also clear that I have shared this information with the USPS more than once, which means I am able to testify at the arbitration hearings and in all three grievances we will request a cease and desist, a make whole remedy, to include monetary remedies for the current clerks as well as the PSEs that were improperly separated and not returned to work.
All three disputes are also continuing violation.
As the APWU case officer for the national dispute, I am requesting a meeting to discuss the dispute, in accordance with Article 15, to allow the parties to exchange position statements/papers, required to appeal the dispute to arbitration.
Unfortunately true to form, I knew the Postal Service would do exactly what they did (separate PSEs on May 6th) and this is why I filed a timely national dispute on May 20, 2022.
I will also request Charlie Cash priority schedule the dispute for national arbitration.
This is clearly bad faith bargaining by the Postal Service.
