NAPS Response to USPS Pay Package FY 2011-2015
“Although the Postal Service’s current financial condition would lend itself to belt-tightening by everyone in the Postal Service, our organization cannot agree with the pay proposals that have been offered in light of the efforts that our members have given in managing operations and supporting the overall service goals and mission of the Postal Service. NAPS also proposed many other provisions beyond pay and benefits that were not addressed by the Postal Service. We intend to exhaust all remedies to ensure that we reach a fair and equitable pay package.”
NAPS Invokes Rights under Title 39, USC and requests Fact Finding:
On Monday, November 14, 2011, the National Association of Postal Supervisors initiated a request to the Federal Mediation and Conciliation Service (FMCS) to enter Fact Finding with the United States Postal Service in accordance with procedures in 39 U.S.C. Section 1004(f) and 29 CFR Part 1404.
Now that our request for Fact Finding has been submitted, pursuant to 39 U.S.C. Section 1004(f)(2), within 15 days after receiving our request, the Federal Mediation and Conciliation Service shall provide a list of seven (7) individuals recognized as experts in supervisory and managerial pay policies.
Each party shall designate one individual from the list to serve on the panel. If, within 10 days after the list is provided, either of the parties has not designated an individual from the list, the Director of the Federal Mediation and Conciliation Service shall make the designation. The first two individuals designated from the list shall meet within 5 days and shall designate a third individual from the list.
The third individual shall chair the panel. If the two individuals designated from the list are unable to designate a third individual within 5 days after their first meeting, the Director shall designate the third individual. In addition to the submission to the Federal Mediation and Conciliation Service, we served notice to the Postal Service of our intentions to initiate Fact Finding.
As further information becomes available we will release it to the membership. We appreciate your support in this matter.
