Addendum to MOU Re: Filling of Residual Vacancies Signed

  Addendum to MOU Re: Filling of Residual Vacancies Signed
February 9, 2016- In a memorandum to all Local Presidents, President Hogrogian and CAD Manager T.J. Branch report that the NPMHU and the Postal Service have signed another MOU about the filling of residual vacancies, this one supplementing the earlier August 2015 MOU on this subject.

Through this February 8, 2016 agreement, the parties have executed an Addendum to the MOU Re Filling Residual Vacancies in which they mutually agree to change item 6 of the original MOU – governing the filling of vacancies based on the MOU Re Transfers, with the following language (new language underlined below):

“Based on the MOU Re: Transfers, all qualified bargaining-unit applicants without priority consideration, on a first-in, first-out basis. These reassignment (transfer) requests will be made with the normal considerations contained in the MOU Re Transfers. All residual vacancies will be posted in eReassign. The number of career reassignments allowed under this paragraph is limited to one in every four full-time opportunities filled in offices of 100 or more work-years and one in every six full-time opportunities filled in offices of less than 100 work-years.

As the new, underlined language makes clear, upon reaching item 6 in the MOU Re Filling Residual Vacancies, all residual vacancies will be posted in eReasign, and career employees from other installations may be transferred based on that system, with upside limits of 1 in every 4 full-time positions in offices with at least 100 work-years and 1 in every 6 positions in smaller facilities.

Copies of this new Addendum, as well as the original MOU, are available at this link.
