This case involved management refusing to consolidate a 21-hour auxiliary route into two “J” routes and one “H” route following a mail count to create two “K” route assignments for a PTF. The parties agree if the number of “K” routes decreases in the office, and the office no longer has two (2) “K” route assignments for a PTF position, management will adjust routes upward as needed to create a “K” route(s) assignment for the PTF, provided there is territory available from overburdened or auxiliary routes. The parties further agree if territory is not available to perform route adjustments, the PTF will continue to be scheduled in accordance with Article 30.2 of the agreement.
