USPS Notifies Union of Payroll Glitch

02/14/2008 - Pay increases associated with the Feb. 16 upgrades will be reflected in March 7 paychecks, but the USPS has informed the APWU that the new level adjustments have not been implemented because the Postal Service has failed to complete the necessary computer programming.

Employees will receive the value of the upgrade, but postal records will continue to indicate that employees are assigned to their former level.
