$56 Million Payment Delayed
12/15/2015 - The Postal Service failed to complete processing of a $56 million payment to clerks in small offices in time for the holidays, the union has learned. Management blamed the delay on a computer glitch technicians encountered when they attempted to upload the payments, said APWU Assistant Clerk Craft Director Lamont Brooks. Payment was expected this week.
The payments are for violations of contractual limits on supervisory personnel performing Clerk Craft duties in Level 15, 16, and 18 offices, and are part of a “global settlement” of grievances on the issue.
When a new date for payment is known, the union will post an update.
As Brooks previously cautioned, “Don’t spend it before you get it!”
