Mail Handler Wage Adjustments
"...Largely because of the continuing decrease in the price of gasoline and other deflationary pressures during the first half of calendar year 2009, there was no cost-of-living adjustment added to the base wages of Mail Handlers in September 2009 (which is based on changes in the Consumer Price Index through July 2009). Please note that the base wages for all Mail Handlers will be increased effective in November 2009 (PP25-2009), when the fifth of six guaranteed general wage increases in the 2006 National Agreement is implemented.

Requesting Reasonable Accommodation
'How must an individual request a reasonable accommodation?'
When an individual decides to request accommodation, the individual or his/her representative must let the employer know that s/he needs an adjustment or change at work for a reason related to a medical condition. To request accommodation, an individual may use "plain English" and need not mention the ADA or use the phrase "reasonable accommodation."'
'Requests for reasonable accommodation do not need to be in writing. Individuals may request accommodations in conversation or may use any other mode of communication. An employer may choose to write a memorandum or letter confirming the individual's request. Alternatively, an employer may ask the individual to fill out a form or submit the request in written form, but the employer cannot ignore the initial request. An employer also may request reasonable documentation that the individual has an ADA disability and needs a reasonable accommodation.'
