Agreement Could Lead to Conversions

An Agreement on filling residual vacancies has been reached at the national level. I have attached the Agreement and provided a link to the News Bulletin. The Charlotte Area Local has a complete list of all residuals in all crafts. We will ensure compliance with the Agreement and are encouraged it will lead to PTF conversions and PSE conversion to career status. Good job on the part of President Dimonstein who spoke of the Agreement when he addresed the Executive Board after our last union meeting.

New Postal Password

New password system

Longer password to replace employee PIN online

New Password

In the coming months, employees will begin using a password to access the USPS LiteBlue website and online self-service applications such as PostalEASE, eCareer, ePayroll, eJob Bidding and eOPF.

Currently, employees use their Employee Identification Numbers (EINs) and 4-digit Personal Identification Numbers (PINs) to access LiteBlue and a range of online self-service USPS applications. That will change, starting in April, when Human Resources and IT launch a new online program to help each employee create a stronger password, 8-16 characters in length.

“The change of the password length is being made to enhance the protection around your personal information and to add complexity to the process for anyone trying to impersonate you,” said Corporate Information Security Officer Chuck McGann.

“Moving to an 8-character complex password provides a significant increase in protection for you as employees and your information,” added McGann. “As always, review your accounts often to verify any changes and change your password if you have any concerns about its security.”

In the coming weeks, USPS will mail instructions to create the new passwords to each employee’s address of record. By the end of April, employees will need their new passwords as well as their EINs to access LiteBlue and all online self-service applications.

The current EINs and 4-digit USPS PINs will remain the same.

Employees conducting self-service HR transactions over the telephone (not online) will continue using their current 4-digit USPS PINs and EINs


Admin Leave Approved


For the first time that anyone can remember we have been able to negotiate administrative leave for the recent snow storm. We continue to work out the details and management is compiling information about who called off and who worked. They will be reviewing the time records from the P&DC and L&DC and then Customer Service operations next. It will take some time to review the time records.

The employer has agreed that APWU represented people who couldn’t report on Wednesday T-3 or who were sent home early from T-2 operations because service was suspended will be included.

T-1, T-2 and T-3 on Thursday will also be included.

T-1 on Friday will also be included.

The employer will also be granting (1) day of administrative leave for those people that made it to work during the period of T-1 Wednesday through T-1 Friday. One day not a day for each day you made it to work.

If you called in sick you were sick and couldn’t make an attempt to get to work and won’t be included.

If you called in for multiple days, such as you called on Wednesday for two days, you will not be included for the second day, since you can’t assume an attempt was made to report for work.

Management has agreed to compile the list and provide to us and their rationale for including/excluding someone. We have reserved the right to file a grievance on any remaining disputes and have agreed to extend time limits until we have reviewed all the information.

I would like to thank Angela Curtis, District Manager, Sandy Wyrick, Senior Plant Manager and Wes Wiles, Postmaster (A) for considering our input and making this decision locally in lieu of waiting years for the issue to be resolved in arbitration.

LeRoy Moyer, General President
