Vice President's Report

November / December 2021

 

JUNETEENTH

 

      NALC at the headquarters level, is aware of an internal postal document that has been all over social media and in some 2184 represented offices stating that Juneteenth will be a paid holiday in 2022. As of today, this is not true. NALC hasn’t signed any memos or agreements with our employer stating that this will be a paid holiday for any city carrier. If that changes before the Juneteenth holiday in 2022, we will get a copy of the agreement to the membership ASAP.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

CCA UNIFORM BANK

 

      With the pandemic prohibiting us from in person meetings, when shopping for CCA Uniforms, remember to let your steward know your sizes or you can call the hall directly to speak with an officer. Give the officer your sizes, we will get a few uniforms for you and arrange to drop them off directly to you or your steward. This keeps you as well as

the officer working at the branch safe. Don’t forget we are always taking gently used uniform donations. 2022 ANNUAL LEAVE SELECTIONS Per our Branch 2184 LMOU, annual leave selections should have begun as of December 1st, 2021. Per the ELM 512.12, the new leave year always begins on the first day of the first full pay period

within the calendar year. In the new year 2022, that will be Saturday, January 1st, 2022. Full Time City carriers will be able to use their annual leave at that time. The new annual leave balances will be available to view in your paychecks dated January 21, 2022. PTFs and CCAs accrue their annual leave as they work and go throughout the calendar year.

 

PENALTY OVERTIME EXCLUSION PERIOD

 

      December 4th, 2021 through December 31st, 2021, is the Penalty Exclusionary Period this year per Article 8.4 of the National Agreement. Happy Holidays to you and your loved ones!-
