Administrative (APO) and Remotely Managed Post Office (RMPO) Training and Responsibilities Briefing Scheduled with USPS Headquarters Next Week.
President Rapoza’s Message on Hurricane Sandy http://www.napus.org/president-rapozas-updates/
Postal Headquarters officials will brief leaders of the two Postmaster organizations next week on the responsibilities that the newly established Administrative (APO) and Remotely Managed (RMPO) Post Offices will assume. The briefing will also include details on the training that will be provided for the new APOS and RMPO positions, including the 6 hour positions that were established under the Post Office Structure Plan (POStPlan.)
In a meeting with Headquarters officials today, NAPUS leaders raised concerns that NAPUS chapter officers had raised about some Districts that were not posting vacant EAS 18 Postmaster positions. Headquarters officials advised us that all vacant EAS 18 Postmaster positions will be posted, without exception. Posting procedures for the newly established vacant 6 hour offices will be discussed at next week’s meeting with Headquarters officials.
Today’s discussions with Postal leaders also included plans in place to correct the form 50’s that were incorrectly sent to FLSA Exempt status Postmasters, notifying them that they would be classified as Non-Exempt. The newly upgraded level 18 Exempt Postmasters who were incorrectly classified as Non-Exempt should record all hours in excess of 40 hours per week and should use leave in increments of less than 8 hours, until the corrected forms 50 have been re-issued. In accordance with the law, FLSA exempt status applies to those who supervise two or more full time equivalent employees.
Please check the website for updates from next week’s meeting.
