APWU received notification of several problems with postal employees Form 50:
- USPS is changing employees to a “new” pay scale because of our new lower steps. We believe this was unnecessary because it is the same pay scale – just new steps. Anyway, some employees are being placed in level 6, step FF (imagine their surprise when they see the $20,000 pay cut on their next check).
- USPS is incorrectly placing clerks in traditional duty assignments into D/A 21-0 – this could mess with their pay, etc.
Please be on the lookout for these and other problems and forward copies of these Forms 50 to us.
