PostalReporter.com Note: The Letter Carriers cited below were sent home under the USPS “National Reassessment Process” (which has now been renamed “ELM546″ program). Some of the Letters Carriers have been sent home AGAIN by USPS after only two weeks back at work.
According to Robert Rutter, President, NALC Branch #1111 in its June 2011 Newsletter.
…..”Branch 1111 has put more than 80 Letter Carriers back to work who were put off “No Work Available,” and put back with full back pay and benefits.

But it should be enough o get somebody promoted!
NALC Branch #1111 is located in Richmond CA and represents Letter Carriers in most of the Bay Area :
