Settlement for Delayed RCA Leave

Due to programming issues, annual leave accrual for RCA’s will now begin effective Pay period 22

Since the U.S. Postal Service missed the date by 2 Pay Periods, to provide remediation to RCAs for the two Pay periods, the parties agree to the following:

All RCA’s (Designation 78-0) will receive four (4) hours of compensation at $20.00/hour for pay periods 21 and 22, respectively, regardless of actual hours worked, provided they are in a pay status for each of these pay periods. This payment will be in the form of a lump sum adjustment and will be processed as soon as practicable. The lump sum payment will be in lieu of any retroactive annual leave accrual.

The agreement is not applicable to RCAs in designation 74-0 or 79-0 assignments during pay periods 21 and 22.  See full statement at this link
