Lead Clerk Settlement
09/22/21 - Queens Area Local AMERICAN POSTAL WORKERS UNION AFL-CIO
LEAD CLERKS TO RECEIVE PAYMENT AND TRAINING AS RESULT OF GRIEVANCE SETTLEMENT Several years ago, our local filed grievances contending that Management failed to honor two National Step 4 settlements that required that all Lead Clerks receive TACS training and TACS access to perform necessary pay and leave adjustments.
Lead Clerk Settlement
09/22/21 - Queens Area Local AMERICAN POSTAL WORKERS UNION AFL-CIO
LEAD CLERKS TO RECEIVE PAYMENT AND TRAINING AS RESULT OF GRIEVANCE SETTLEMENT Several years ago, our local filed grievances contending that Management failed to honor two National Step 4 settlements that required that all Lead Clerks receive TACS training and TACS access to perform necessary pay and leave adjustments. The functions of performing pay and leave adjustments had been done by the clerk craft many years ago until management abolished the positions and gave the work to supervisors. With the creation of Lead Clerks during the 2010 contract negotiations, that work was restored to the clerk craft in the Lead Clerk position description. Unfortunately, management never provided the training nor adhered to the National settlements in 2016. As a result, many locals, including the Queens Area Local, filed grievances requesting that management provide the training and that Lead Clerks be made whole for the bargaining unit work those supervisors were doing while performing the TACS adjustments. Since many locals in the old Northeast Area filed the same grievances, one regional grievance was filed and arbitrated. National Business Agent Pete Coradi successfully advocated the case for the APWU and the arbitration award was rendered in May of 2019. Once again, management failed to provide the training and compensate Lead Clerks in the Northeast Area for the work that management had been performing. Recently, NBA Pete Coradi was able to negotiate a settlement based on the 2019 Lead Clerk Arbitration Award. The settlement provides for Lead Clerks to receive the necessary TACS training and begin to perform the TACS work when necessary. In addition to the training, a lump sum of 25 million dollars was awarded to the APWU to compensate all Lead Mail Processing Clerks, Lead Sales and Service Clerks and Lead Customer Service Clerks in the Northeast area, approx. 3300 clerks. CONTACT AN APWU UNION REPRESENTATIVE TO ENSURE YOU ARE ON THE PAYMENT LIST The settlement provides pay entitlement for all clerk craft employees who held (“held” not working) a Lead Clerk duty assignment during the time frame of February 4, 2016 through September 3, 2021. Payment is calculated at $7.43 a day for each day the Lead Clerk assignment was held, for a maximum of 2044 days for a maximum payment of $15,193.20, minus tax deductions. The payment is anticipated to be inputted by management for payment on the October 1, paycheck. Those that are due in excess of $10,000 (ten thousand dollars) will receive their payment in two installments. First one on October 1, 2021 in the amount of $9,995.00 and the second installment on the October 15, 2021 for the balance. Any clerical member that believes they have held a Lead Clerk position during the above time frame, should see a Union Rep. in the JFK APWU office or contact the Queens Area Local office in Ozone Park to ensure that they are on the list for payment. IT PAYS TO BELONG!!!
